Over his 15 years in music, Diplo has become a jack of many trades and a master of many sounds. Rising to fame in the early 2000s, most notably for producing M.I.A’s smash hit “Paper Planes” Diplo’s sound sourced inspiration from hip-hop and trip-hop, before moving into reggae-inspired territories as a part of the group Major Lazer and EDM as a part of Jack-U. By continuing to produce hit after hit, Diplo became recognized as one of contemporary music’s most noteworthy tastemakers, while also starting his own label Mad Decent, which brought acts like DJ Snake and Riff Raff to the mainstream. As Diplo continues to produce hits on his lonesome, and for acts such as Beyonce, he continues to reinforce his place as one of EDM’s biggest superstars, and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
