    Long over due from me, anyone else into the wonder that is Diplo? I've got a kinda feeling no-one else will be?? (Tho FES rightfully should be???)

    Surely undisputed King of the Philly / B-more (I fink, not exactly sure how to classify) party hiphop / multi genre mashup style. Talk about a musical education!

    I ain't heard a track or rmx or set of his I ain't loved...

    '(Diplo &) Hollertronix - Never Scared' must be one of the best dj mixes ever ever ever...:inlove:

    Over 300 trx allegedly, but not hectic, loadsa multi-layering. Been on it for wks and wks and never get bored.

    The Fabric Live was aiight,, supreme selection but ltd by licensing to only 20 odd trx.

    Did a hot BBC Essential mix too. Loadsa stuff out there, not hard to find.

    Anyone else?

    some stuff to stream on here, but not the same as blasting a mix out in ones ear lugs...

    never heard of the dude, will be looking for that 300 tracks mix tho for sure. It wasnt the one posted up here with bars of old hip hop switched on the next bar, with the guy shouting over the mix was it? lol

    Definitely not, makes them look like clowns...It's not especially fast mixed, just very multi layered, just crazy subtle brilliance!

    I hated the Fabric Live cd and that turned him off for me!

    Prefer Soulwax :)

    That Fabric live doesn't do his DJing justice at all (cos it's just one track after another for those who ain't heard it, not multilayered or mashed up like usual.

    I forgot Megatroid Mix where Diplo mixes up DJ Shadow into a storm.

    Must go check out Soul Wax.

    I'll give Diplo another try in light of what you've said. I vowed never to listen to him, after listening to 'mixing' on the Fabric Live cd.
