When most people see Diplo behind the decks, they probably expect to hear loud, banging, EDM hits mixed in with the latest hip-hop chart toppers. It would be a fair expectation. When it comes to Burning Man, however, all bets are off.
Last year on a Thursday Evening at Burning Man’s Robot Heart camp, Diplo took the stage to bring down the sun, and went forth to play an hour and a half set full of “afrobeat, deep house, and tribal sounds,” as Diplo called it. The set sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard before from Diplo, and it’s refreshing to see his mixing skills being put to use outside of the world of EDM.
This set sounds perfect for a late summer sunset, and it’s just now surfaced so that you can throw it on whenever you please. Stream the full set below and enjoy!
