Surprise, Surprise. As if there was not enough hype in Shanghai already, this edition of Flavor of the Week features none other than Diplo.
The man is everywhere these days — one half of super-duo Major Lazer, the new face of Blackberry and GAP, Mad Decent label boss, and yet he still finds time to collaborate, remix, and produce for the likes of Robyn, Tiesto, Beyonce, M.I.A., Sleigh Bells, and the list goes on…
Despite all his recent mainstream success, I still can’t get enough from his baile funk days, hence the video from his first documentary ‘Favela on Blast,’ which dropped last year. For me, nothing conjures up the summer feeling quite like it with its sexy beats and sweaty bodies. You can download Diplo’s ‘Favela on Blast’ mix here.
If you’re in Shanghai, this is going to be one party you do not want to miss!
Check out Robyn’s summer hit ‘Dance Hall Queen,’ produced by Diplo.
