Diplo may have been one of the busiest artists of 2013, but he still found time to record a hit-filled end-of-the-year mix for his popular show ‘Diplo and Friends’ on BBC Radio 1. Over the past year, Thomas Wesley Pentz has released a solo EP, a full-length album with his dancehall act Major Lazer, and even formed a massive side project with Skrillex. That may sound like a lot, but that’s not even including his work as the chief of Mad Decent. His label had a monster year that was highlighted by the release of Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” and the Mad Decent Block Party, which was a can’t-miss show over the summer.
This mix completely breaks genre barriers, as it features artists from all over the music industry. Whether you’re a fan of Kanye West, Disclosure, Macklemore or Mat Zo, listeners are bound to find something that appeals to them. Diplo also includes many of his own tracks and also some of Mad Decent’s biggest names such as DJ Snake, Flosstradamus, GTA and Baauer. Be sure to check out the mix below and begin 2014 turnt-up!
