Listen to Diplo’s 2 Hour Hip Hop Set on BBC Radio 1XTRA



Besides being the head of Major Lazer, involved in JACK U and founder of Mad Decent perhaps Diplo‘s greatest accolade is his impeccable taste making abilities, blending influences across the musical sprectrum into cohesive mixes and productions that resonate with people of different ages, gender and walks of life. Though he’s mostly known for his contributions to the dance music world which he somewhat laments, he considers Miami Bass, Rap and Hip hop as his roots growing up as a kid in Florida.

As an act of celebration for Radio 1 Xtra’s ongoing “MC Month,” Diplo has decided to take a break away from electronic music and give a tribute to the genre that has influenced him deeply since day 1. Over the next 2-hours, Diplo delivers an all encompassing mix full of must know hip hop cuts, old and new.
