Diplo presents Higher Ground

Diplo presents Higher Ground

A superstar DJ, sought-after producer, taste-making label owner, and wizard behind Major Lazer, Diplo launched his career on the fringes of dance music. With his mash-up mixtapes, he found and created a sound where his musical tastes ('80s pop, electronica, Dirty South hip-hop, and his major influence and Miami bass music) intersect. His attention-grabbing projects Hollertronix and Piracy Funds Terrorism, Vol. 1 mixtape his imprint Mad Decent presented the edge of pop, hip-hop, and dance music while his conceptual project Major Lazer mixed dancehall with rave culture and toured the globe as a live-party sound system. By the late 2010s, high-profile projects with Skrillex (Jack Ü) and Mark Ronson (Silk City) both yielded Grammy wins for collaborations with Justin Bieber and Dua Lipa, respectively. He also teamed with Sia and Labrinth to form the supergroup LSD. Heading into the 2020s, the versatile artist segued into territories ranging from country to ambient, focusing on house music through his imprint Higher Ground. On the occasion of ADE, Diplo is coming to Paradiso to present the latter.
