Notable Releases: Dillon Francis - "Messages" / Zeds Dead - "Hot Sauce"

Diplo's imprint hasn't made huge waves in 2013, but they've had some great releases. Dillon Francis is always a win, and the multi-faceted EP from Zeds Dead was solid. Mad Decent made sure to drop tunes from promising acts like LIZ, Kennedy Jones, and Foxsky too. However, bombastic projects like the "Express Yourself" Remix EP, or the various Jeffree's releases really show how dialed in the house that Diplo built is to the evolving dance music scene. And with "Harlem Shake" admittedly giving Diplo's imprint new life, we're hoping the label takes more chances and drops more intriguing music on the masses this year.
