Diplo, Diplo.

Master of the Weird

I gotta show some love for my hometown homie Diplodocus. I was a little late to discover Diplo; it was at the end of my third year of high school, back in 2008. My roommate at boarding school popped his iPod in the dock, and played a mix called ‘I Like Turtles.’ The eclectic mix combined hip-hop, jungle, rock, EDM, pop, and Diplo’s own weird sounds so masterfully and gracefully, I was left aching to find more. Then came your typical rush of music discovery: Hollertronix, Fabriclive, Decent for Work for Decent Pay, and tons of miscellaneous Wesley Pentz productions.

Now Diplo has solidified his status as a member of the (non-commercial) music industry elite. I just wanted to remind our readers that its good to get a little weird sometimes. Go listen to some Diplo tracks. Here’s two relatively new ones to start you off:

Diplo – Tell Em

Katy B – Witches Brew (Diplo Remix)

The single off his Express Yourself EP:

Diplo – Express Yourself (feat. Nicky Da B)

And a washed out remix of Diplo & Oliver Twist’s banger ‘Go’:
