Over the course of a 20-year career that began with his now-legendary Philly club night Hollertronix, Diplo has collaborated with the world’s biggest stars and toured the world over. Born in Mississippi and raised in Florida, he and his era-defining label Mad Decent continue to champion genres and artists from around the world, and further ventures include a publishing company and various book, film and TV projects. The now thirteen-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. Diplo also released a self-titled album last year — his first full length of electronic music in 18 years that features four U.S. Dance #1s — via Higher Ground, the deep house imprint he launched in 2019.
Additionally, he recently revived his country project Thomas Wesley with a new album, Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley: Chapter 2 — Swamp Savant, featuring collaborations with Sturgill Simpson, Dove Cameron, Morgan Wade, Parker McCollum and more. Swamp Savant marks his first new country music since 2020’s Gold-certified Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil, which features the six times Platinum-certified single “Heartless” with Morgan Wallen, Gold-certified tracks “Dance With Me” with Thomas Rhett and Young Thug and “Lonely” with Jonas Brothers and more.
