Who better to compile a list of the best tracks to hit the clubs, festival stages, and airwaves in 2015 than one of the biggest innovators and tastemakers on the planet? We of course are talking about Mad Decent ace Diplo; after creating two of the biggest releases of the year with Major Lazer's "Lean On" and the Grammy nominated Jack U collaboration with Justin Beiber "Where R U Now", the true producer of the year took over his influential BBC Radio 1 show to deliver a two hour mix with nothing but the best releases!
Hitting everything from Dillon Francis, Duke Dumont, Jauz, Kendrick Lamar and many more, Diplo dials in deep to deliver the best round up from a sensational year in dance music. Stream the mix below! Enjoy
Diplo's Best of 2015
A new dance craze born in the Atlanta rap scene has crossed well into the mainstream thanks to viral pushes from the likes of Lebron James, Cam Newton, mainstream media personalities, and international tastemaker extraordinaire / Grammy nominated producer Diplo.
If you've been following the Mad Decent kingpin / Jack-U co-founder's social media feeds for the past few months, you know he's been endorsing the "dab" movement across the globe at festivals, venues, and award shows.
Now he's joined forces with rising Mad Decent producer Bad Royale to lay down a crazy trapped out remix of ATL rap squad Migos' massive hit "Look At My Dab". We foresee this being a real heater for the next few months as end of year shows are just around the corner.

Diplo and Sleepy Tom's original song "Be Right There" has amassed millions of plays since it's release via Diplo's Mad Decent imprint. Today the label released a compilation of their favorite remixes of the track including MK, Boombox Cartel, Naderi, Gent & Jawns, Flava D, and Big Fish.
Of the six remixes, Boombox Cartel, MK, and Naderi's renditions stand out as the front runners of the pack in our eyes. Each unique in their own right, Boombox Cartel's flip is a trap infused future bass banger with tightly packed snares and entirely reformed synth work. Deep house icon MK manages to take the track into new territory with his full-fledged pool-ready house rendition of the track. The exciting rising Aussie producer Naderi livens up the track with brightly colored high points and valleys of lofty down-tempo while managing to incorporate chopped-up vocal samples and melodic layers.
Check out our three favorite remixes below and head over to Spotify or SoundCloud to hear the other three! Enjoy.

Chicago based trap and bass innovators Flosstradamus have stepped away from their typical style of releases to bring us something different today. This release comes in addition to some cyber monday deals on their HDYNATION Holiday Collection merchandise.
The duo have taken on Jack U’s “Where Are U Now” along with Post Malone’s breakout hit “White Iverson.” Leaving Jack U’s infectious instrumental intact, they’ve weaved Post Malone’s incredibly catchy vocals atop the beat, and the mashup works perfectly. Grab the free download below and enjoy!
