Diplo at LIV Miami August 1st
LIV Miami: Thomas Pentz, better known by his stage name Diplo, is the 36 year old DJ and entrepreneuer behind hits like “Freak,” “Holla Out” and, more recently, “Where Are U Now” with fellow EDM juggernaut Skrillex and Justin Beiber. Diplo’s story, without question, makes him a bonafide heavy hitter in the industry.
Having spent a chunk of his childhood growing up in none other than sunny Miami, Diplo quickly realized music was a passion of his and while on his college journey, found himself in Philadelphia. His move to the City of Brotherly Love turned out to be a gamechanger for the young artist as it was where he linked up with fellow DJ Low Budget and the two began throwing parties together. It’s those parties that eventually led the young artist to eventually become the man we now know as Diplo.
A chance encounter with artist M.I.A. at London’s Fabric Club in 2004 would prove to be the pivotal point in his career – as a matter of fact, that chance encounter is what many believe catipulted Diplo to superstardom. As a matter of fact, M.I.A’s mega-hit “Paper Planes” was actually created by Diplo and DJ Switch, a London based DJ. Since, Diplo has started his own label “Mad Decent” in 2005 which has served as his platform to release his own music as well as music from the likes of Rusko, Savage Skulls, Lil’ Jon and even Gucci Mane.
Conquering huge milestones in such a short peoriod was nothing to Diplo, which might explain why he’s created side-projects such as Major Lazer and Jack U, both of which have done phenominally well. The Grammy nominated DJ has produced tracks for the likes of Chris Brown, M.I.A, Snoop Dogg and Usher.
Now that you know he spend a part of his childhood living in Miami, it should come as no surprise that Diplo is making his way back!
