It’s a modern day battle of the bands and Diplo will be providing the commentary. Questlove, drummer for the Grammy Award-winning band, The Roots, is producing a brand new show on VH1 called Soundclash
. The concept is simple: each week there will be three artists, up and coming and highly acclaimed, from different genres sharing a stage and performing one another’s songs and more together. The first episode will air on July 23 and the guests will be Lil Wayne, Fall Out Boy and London Grammar. The second episode on July 30 will feature Ed Sheeran, Sia and Grouplove. As we mentioned before, Diplo will be the host and based on his Tweets and candid interviews, he should be the perfect candidate for the job. His love of music and vast knowledge of multiple genres makes him a great selection for a project like this, and he’ll certainly add a level of flair and to the production. We can’t wait!
