Diplo digs deep for Best of the Decade mix with BBC
Diplo resurfaced on BBC with a two-hour mix in hand, meditating on his favorite selections of the last decade.
If anyone is lined-up to slather their taste across the masses, it’s the eclectic, multi-genre, multi-project, label boss, A&R by association, tastemaker: Diplo. With a wildly successful and watershed decade himself from his reign as Major Lazer’s frontman, to his Grammy Award winning collaborative venture with Skrillex and beyond, crossing the one-billion stream mark on Spotify is becoming more and more habitual for the cross-generational tastemaker.
Not only does Diplo ever have his finger on the electronic music pulse, he’s also been part of developing pop super groups such as LSD with Sia and Labrinth, and Silk City with Mark Ronson which helped the two influential artists secure a Best Dance Recording Grammy for “Electricity” with Dua Lipa.
His Best of the Decade mix should arrive for many as cherished as gold, with enduring power tracks like David Guetta’s “Titanium,” Swedish House Mafia’s “One,” Avicii’s “Levels,” Rihanna and Calvin Harris’ “We Found Love,” Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites,” Flume’s remix of Disclosure’s “You and Me,” The Weeknd’s collaboration with Daft Punk, “I Feel It Coming,” his own work on behalf of his Major Lazer project alongside DJ Snake “Lean On,” and many more certified relics revered throughout the industry’s global soundscape.
