The deluxe version of Diplo’s recent self-titled album—his first full-length of electronic music in 18 years—is out today on FFRR. The deluxe album features three brand new tracks with Melé, Raumakustik and Joeski and an entire second disc comprised of 17 remixes by some of dance music’s most revered names; 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. A titan of electronic music, he’s now turned his focus back to these roots.
The album 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—classic house records that have soundtracked the reopening of clubs worldwide, 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 now-legendary club night Hollertronix, Diplo has gone from selling records to Kanye West out of the trunk of his car to collaborating with 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 headlining Radio 1 Ibiza this Friday 5th live on Radio 1, Radio 1 Dance and iPlayer.
The eleven-time Grammy nominee is also a member of the iconic Major Lazer, one third of LSD—the psychedelic supergroup 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 topped charts worldwide.
