Bieber, Diplo And Skrillex On How To Make An EDM Hit

By Iman Lababedi | August 26, 2015

This is the art of the art, this is how hits are made in 2015 and whether you or I think it is real music, it is really real hit pop. In 2015, at least in theory, on stage the likes of Skrillex will improvise to a setlist and in the recording stufio nothing is ever left to chance.

M.I.A. Speaks (And Disses Diplo & Oprah)… But Not To Us

By Alyson Camus | March 24, 2015

In 2009, Time nominated me for one of the most influential people of the 21st century or something and I met Oprah at that party. And I was like, ‘Hey, people are gonna fucking die in my country. Like, please pay attention.’ And she was like, ‘You’re shit because you were rude to Lady Gaga and I’m not talking to you

Diplo Fights An Artist On Twitter, Sort Of Apologizes

By Alyson Camus | February 17, 2015

Does he realize how stupid and sexist he appears when he tweets stuff like this? For some reason, people think they can be total dick on Twitter or Facebook, because I am sure he would have never said this to the woman in person, but his reaction is so immature… and may be he realized it and sort of apologized two days later on TwitLonger

Apparently Diplo Was Scared Swifties, Not Swift, Would Kill Him

By Iman Lababedi | January 24, 2015

So does this mean when he said was scared for his life it was less that Swift would have him killed and more her fans would kill him? Well, that sounds much more likely. Swifties might certainly loath Diplp enough, and they didn’t even have to sit through his New year’s Eve show with Skrillex.

Some Of The Best Music Quotes Of 2014

By Alyson Camus | January 6, 2015

I have more, the ultra narcissist over-the-top one: ‘My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live’, the confessional ones, ‘Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph. I am a proud non-reader of books’

Skrillex And Diplo At Madison Square Garden, New Year”s Eve 2014, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | January 1, 2015

Maybe five years ago, I was at a house party where Afrobeats were performing and standing to his side, I watched him manipulate tapes, beats, volumes, and the thing about EDM is when you watch a great DJ perform it is like watching a great guitarist take a solo and it is all in the hands and when you can’t see… No wait, much like EDM this review suffers from ADD

A Butt Story Starring Diplo, Taylor Swift, Lorde and Katy Perry

By Alyson Camus | November 15, 2014

Seriously, why has pop culture focused so much on this part of the human anatomy lately? Is it the influence of some degenerated products of hip hop culture such as J-Lo, Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus?

Frank Ocean, The Clash and Diplo Team Up For 'Hero'

By Alyson Camus | March 18, 2014

‘The Clash were always teachers to me, even before I shared a studio with Paul and Mick. Their musical anarchy and constant attitude to disregard rules and forge their own path was inspirational to me. They meant death to genres, music and message above everything. Frank lives by the same creed

Mick Jones, Paul Simonon,Frank Ocean & Diplo, "Hero" Reviewed

By Helen Bach | March 13, 2014

Mick looks like an over anxious dog hunched forward and rocking to Diplos every word and Paul still stoic and stiff shoots a periodic smile. Ocean seems to me he got the short end of the stick and he’s the one with most to offer in this tune.
