Notable Release(s): Diplo Revolution, Dillon Francis ft. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - "Without You," Zeds Dead Hot Sauce
The house that Diplo built kept pushing the envelope and exposing sounds and artists that many aboveground might not have been familiar with. They saw a crazy amount of press due to the viral craze surrounding Baauer's 2012 single "Harlem Shake," which ended up topping iTunes and Billboard charts almost a year after the fact. Label heavyweights like DIllon Francis continued to wow us with tracks like the beautiful "Without You," while we were also given releases from Zeds Dead, Juyen Sebulba, Kennedy Jones, and many others. The underground sound of now continues to thrive on Mad Decent.
