Count Me In
Yes! Diplo is coming to Buenos Aires. The above image was included as part of the weekly e-mail blast from the fine folks at Zizek, who have apparently snagged Florida's finest for their upcoming one-year anniversary. Further details have not been provided but setting aside Wednesday, October 17 on your social calendar is probably a good idea.
Besides his groundbreaking DJ work as one half of Hollertronix, Diplo has also compiled an impressive production resume, working with artists like M.I.A. and Bonde Do Role while remixing big-name acts like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Gwen Stefani, Bloc Party and Queens of the Stone Age along with a slew of underground favorites. (Check his myspace page for a complete list of production credits.) Last year Diplo launched his own label, Mad Decent, which also hosts an excellent blog and podcast series called Mad Decent Worldwide Radio.
Anyone looking for a taste of Diplo's current DJ sets should check out the mix he recently completed for the new Pitchfork Mix series. Click here to download the mix (warning: it's a big file) or here to see what he had to say about the various tracks he included.
Get excited. Diplo is coming!
