Das Energi Spotlight: Diplo
He is dance music’s golden boy and sometimes the black sheep. He’s never quiet with his music or opinions. Always speaks his mind and consistently bridges the gap between the business and the music side of our industry. Diplo is the all around artistic genius, he is the creator of the record label Mad Decent, Grammy winning producer and a member of super groups Jack U & Major Lazer. When does this guy sleep though? Here are some facts about the man in the bubble floating across festival crowds around the globe. We are praying he brings the bubble to the Energi Field this August to crowd surf with our Das fans.
○ Did you know? The name ‘ DIPLO ‘ comes from the Diplodocus dinosaur one of his favorite creatures as a kid.
○ He’s super group Major Lazer played the first U.S. concert in Cuba since the US restoration of ties, a groundbreaking moment in music history.
○ He has been Grammy nominated for: Record of the Year, Best Rap Song, Producer of the Year and Album of the Year.
○ AND he’s not just Grammy nominated the guy has won Grammy’s for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronic Album. Huge moments not just for Diplo but for the Dance Music world all together.

“Every day is work for me, but it’s also a party. I’m the luckiest guy in the world”
