From crushing festivals and clubs as a solo act or with Major Lazer to producing tracks for some of biggest radio stars of our generation, Diplo is one of the busiest acts is music. On top of just producing music, his consistent touring schedule see's him popping up in more places than you can fathom within a calendar year. But this hasn't deterred the iconic mogul from releasing a brand new full length compilation album appropriately titled Random White Dude Be Everywhere via his own imprint label Mad Decent.
The album consists of some of Diplo's biggest hits from the past few years all the way back to "Express Yourself", the song that literally jumpstarted the twerking revolution and radio charting singles "Revolution" and "Boy Oh Boy". New tracks like the recent collab with Steve Aoki and Deorro on "Freak", a monster turn up anthem "6th Gear" which is a joing effort track with DJ Alvaro and Kstylis, and the party banger "Techno" featuring rapper Wacka Flocka Flame. Random White Dude Me Everywhere is pure bliss for on the ears for Diplo fans new and old; listen to the entire album in full below and pick up your own copy through iTunes today. Enjoy!

Diplo is quite the guy I must say. He's never one to let up on providing entertainment from his stream of greatness via social media or jokingly acknowledging that his recent cut of Lorde "Tennis Court" didn't exceed the remix done by friend and Australian powerhouse producer Flume. The Mad Decent head honcho recently took to Reddit to conduct an AMA and shared some juicy news on his supergroup project with Skrillex known as Jack U. The breakout collaboration of these two titans is coming out with a full length mixtape, which is something that could potentially crash the internet upon its release. The overflow of new material between the two found its way into Diplo's recently as he played out their first single "Take You There" in front of a daytime crowd. Though the video doesn't have the best audio, you can hear the excitement (largely the two girls confessing their love for Diplo) as songstress Kiesza lays down her pipes over a Jack U produced trap and bass beat that screams massive banger. Until we see the official release of the single or the news on the highly anticipated mixtape… Enjoy!

It's safe to say Diplo touches something… and it turns to gold, and if it's a song that's good on it's own, the result is in a league of it's own. He has just taken on Lorde and her single "Tennis Court" and has given it his unique brand of wobbly sounds full of downtempo trap meets electro vibes. Somehow Lorde sounds just as fresh as the original did in 2013. There's no free download which leads us to believe this might be official. Listen below and enjoy.

Being a top dawg in an industry involves personal sacrifices and putting in the man hours to obtain, something iconic genre blending producers Zeds Dead can attest to having spent most of their time on the road delivering their captivating music to the masses year round while releasing new material steadily. Diplo's eclectic eye spotted their talent early on and signed D.C. and Hooks to his prestigious Mad Decent label, which has released 3/6 EP's from the duo including their brand new Somewhere Else EP out now!
I've talked in length on how the EP showcases a different, more versatile side of Zeds Dead production; their collaboration with Alt Rock / Indie friend Twin Shadow on "Lost You" took on a deep house design while "Hadouken" featured more of their well known dubstep and bass creation capabilities. The release is quite easy to digest in one sitting and contains a stunning bass-infused collaboration with fellow Toronto producer Memorecks "Collapse", the electro soul / chill bass single "Stone Caponed" featuring long-time MC partner Omar Linx and a sultry saxophone addition by Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic, and an electro / bass turnup with Dirytphonics and songstress Bright Lights titled "Where Are You Know" and a few others. Dare I say this EP is a must obtain addition to anyones music collection as Zeds Dead show how broadening one capacity to entice listeners through genre blending can have a positive outcome on their production. Stream the EP in full below and grab your digital download now via iTunes! Enjoy

It's quite fitting of Diplo to rekindle a collaboration with Toronto producer / DJ Grandtheft for a remix that could potentially rule the club and festival scenes this coming season. They two previously combined forces in 2012 on the massive remix of Calvin Harris's "Sweet Nothing" featuring the sultry voice of Florence Welsh (of Florence and the Machine). Now two years later, Diplo and Grandtheft take over another Calvin Harris release as they transform the progressive house vibes from the radio hit "Summer" into a certified trap and bass heater that is begging to be flexed in-front of a live audience. Stream the song below and pick up on iTunes if you're feeling it. Enjoy

[PREMIERE] Grandtheft and Keys n Krates – Keep It 100 EP : Trap EP Via Diplo’s Mad Decent Label [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Premieres by Bryan | Tags: Diplo, Grandtheft, Keys n Krates, Mad Decent, Trap
Canadian producer / DJ Grandtheft has exploded onto our radar within the last year with multiple trap and bass releases flexing his talents as far as the eye and ear can see and hear. Thanks to Diplo's infamous Mad Decent label, we have the pleasure of debuting two new releases involving Grandtheft collaborating with fellow countrymen Keys & Krates and closing out with a B-Side collaboration alongside Jackal. "Keep It 100" featuring Keys & Krates exposes a tough vocal build that makes way for a flurry of trap drums, air horn sirens, and a hefty bass knocks having you move uncontrollably. “Let Me Tell You Something” featuring Jackal is more of a bass bounce anthem for the twerkers of the world to dance to from the club to the most packed out festival stage. Both tracks are available for free download thanks to Mad Decent's Jeffrees as well, so stream the exclusive premieres below and above all… Enjoy
Diplo's name on a track tends to never go wrong and is precisely the case with his latest remix. He's taken on LA based singer / artist Dawn Golden's recent infectious single "All I Want" and given it his extra fresh electro twist. The song is available as stream only, but you can get the emotion filled original apart of the Still Life album available now. Enjoy!
