Diplo flies solo on latest ‘Diplo & Friends’ mix
On the May 16th edition of his BBC Radio 1Xtra show, Diplo shunned his friends and took control of the decks for the full time slot. In the mix, he hits new music from artists including Disclosure and Oliver Heldens; remixes of hits like “Trap Queen,” “Often,” and “2 On”; modern classics from MK‘s “Look Right Through” dub to Hot Chip‘s “One Life Stand”; and of course plenty of Major Lazer new and old. And after two hours of seemingly infinite jams, Diplo wraps up his time with “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh),” Rich Homie Quan’s massive summer anthem. It’s an excellent mix, and it fully captures the versatility and discerning ear that have made Diplo one of dance music’s brightest stars.
