He goes from the dub-reggae scene in Jamaica to the electro-techno underground in Tel Aviv and the favelas of Rio; from Brazilian funk-tinged “tecno brega” to Angolan kuduro and South African zef rap. Diplo has worked with big names such as MIA, Shakira, Santigold, Beyoncé, Chris Brown and Justin Bieber. He has remixed Bloc Party, Peter, Bjorn and John, Sleigh Bells and MGMT, and rebranded Snoop Dogg as ghetto-savvy reggae jungle king Snoop Lion. This weekend he will be supported by local electro-hipsters Sibot, Das Kapital, White Nite, Chris Jack and Dank.
