Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, is possibly one of the most dynamic forces in music today, as a musician/DJ/producer both solo and with Major Lazer, who just completed a set at Coachella this year. After multiple Grammy nominations, including Producer of the Year, and being crowned the no.1 most streamed artist on Soundcloud for 2013, Beyoncé’s ‘Run the World’ sampled Major Lazer’s ‘Pon De Floor’ and sold over a million copies, cementing Diplo’s place in the pop world. This summer will see Diplo bring the party to T in the Park when he headlines the King Tut’s Tent as well as with Major Lazer on the Radio 1 Stage.
