As Electronic music continues to rise, it was only time before a full length feature film was to hit the big screen nationwide. 20th Century Fox, the company responsible for some of the biggest movies in Hollywood have teamed up with none other then Diplo to create a big screen movie with aiming to capture the “electronic dance music craze”. Diplo will be executively producing the film, which should ensure it properly describes the electronic world.
The plot of the movie revolves around 3 teens who’s goal is to get into a music festival where Diplo is headlining. It is said to be “8 Mile meets Project X ”. I couldn’t trust Diplo more then I do, so I have full faith he will be able to make this work.
This movie should defintely cement electronic music, and really show that electronic music really is here to stay.

Following up Avicii’s out of the box guest mix, we have none other then trap beast RL Grime filling the second half off of this weekend’s monsterous Diplo and Friends radio show. This mix features 60 minutes of some unreleased trap bombs and favorites seamlessly mixed together. He throws some bangin hip-hop mixed in between unreleased trap anthems like “Baddest” from Baauer and “Crowd Control” from Flosstradmus & DJ Sliink. He ends the mix with a huge unknown remix to Chief Kief’s “Love Sosa” that goes off. This should have some massive global appeal to all fans of trap and hip-hop. Turn this up, and patiently await the latest from mr. Grime. Also don’t miss his recent Hard Miami 2013 Mixtape from last week as well. Enjoy.

Diplo has brought out quite the variety of his friend DJ’s to do guest mixes for his weekly Diplo & Friends Radio Show, yet I don’t think anyone saw this coming. He shockingly brought Swedish superstar Avicii, which Diplo hilariously reassures us how he is indeed friends with Avicii in the mix. Do not worry as the mix starts with 10 minutes of non electronic throw back tracks that might throw some of you off, trust that this is easily one of the best guest mixes we have heard in awhile. The mix quickly progresses to a fitting D.A.N.C.E. by Justice and Eric Prydz throwback. He then moves through a fantastic mix of refreshing disco and unexcepted tracks. He even includes original song from Etta James sampled in Levels. It makes sense that he would showcase his abilities as a DJ and stray away from his typical succescingle progressive house singles. This mix really grounds him as a DJ and shows that he is still very much tapped into the underground, and not a sold out commercial DJ despite his quick rise to worldwide fame. Sit back and really peek into this mix and see a different side of Avicii. Enjoy!
