The deluxe version of Diplo’s recent self-titled album—his first full-length of electronic music in 18 years—is out now on FFRR. It features three brand new tracks with Melé, Raumakustik and Joeski and an entire second disc comprised of 17 remixes by artists including Sofia Kourtesis, Purple Disco Machine, Soulwax, DJ Seinfeld, Seth Troxler and more.
Diplo is to dive into the house music that first blew Diplo’s mind as a teenager and features the Grammy-nominated ‘On My Mind’ with SIDEPIECE, ‘Don’t Forget My Love’ with Miguel, which has 55M streams to date globally, with radio support on BBC Radio 1’s A-list, Capital, Kiss FM, and ‘Looking For Me’ and ‘Promises’ with Paul Woolford and Kareen Lomax—as well as collaborations with Aluna, TSHA, Leon Bridges, Lil Yachty, Busta Rhymes, Seth Troxler, Amtrac, RY X and more.
Over the course of a 20-year career that began with his club night Hollertronix, Diplo has gone from selling records to Kanye West out of the trunk of his car to collaborating with some of the world’s biggest stars (Beyoncé, Madonna, Justin Bieber) and playing all over the globe (Havana, Karachi, Kathmandu). He continues to explore and champion genres and artists from around the world (baile funk, dancehall, New Orleans bounce) and through his label, publishing company and various book, film and TV projects. Diplo headlines Radio 1 Ibiza today live on Radio 1, Radio 1 Dance and iPlayer.
The 11-time Grammy nominee is also a member of Major Lazer, one third of LSD—the psychedelic group with Sia and Labrinth whose debut album has been streamed over 3 billion times, and half of Silk City with Mark Ronson—whose Platinum-certified, Grammy-winning ‘Electricity’ with Dua Lipa apparently topped charts worldwide.
