Diplo, born Thomas Wesley Pentz, has made a huge impact on today’s music. His brand and musical talents have become well known internationally through his musical career. He is constantly blurring the lines between high and low, mainstream and underground through his devotion and musical sensitivity.
Flashback to 2004 set in South Philadelphia, Diplo solidified himself as a developed artist when he debuted the album “Florida.” He teamed up with M.I.A. to create a mixtape, first and second album, leading to the creation of a crowd’s favorite— “Paper Planes” in 2007. This Grammy-nominated song gained so much reputation that it hit No. 4 on the U.S. Hot 100 Chart and sold over 3 million copies.
In 2005, the record label, Mad Decent, was founded by Pentz to exhibit multiple captivating sounds Diplo runs into while touring the world. Some artists include Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, Baauer, and Riff Raff. He advanced the label to generate an annual series of outdoor festivals/parties that spans across North America known as Mad Decent Block Parties.
Even years later Diplo still collaborates with artists and creates a brand to display their work. In 2010 he teamed up with Switch to form Major Lazer and in 2013 he combined his talented music ability with dubstep producer, Skrillex, to create Jack Ü.
Some reputable achievements of Diplo’s include several Grammy nominations, Producer of the Year, and honored as the #1 most streamed artist on Soundcloud in 2013. Even the Queen, Beyonce, sampled Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor” in her hit, “Run the World” which sold over a million copies which allowed Diplo to leave a footprint in pop music.
Nowadays, Diplo performed over 235 dates in 2015 alone and was nominated for three 2016 Grammy titles: Producer of the Year, Best Dance Recording, and Best Dance/Electronic Album. Major Lazer’s globally loved “Leaned On” released in June 2015 in the album Peace Is the Mission reached #1 at Top 40 Radio, was honored with the title of Spotify’s Global Song of the Summer, and was crowned the title of the most streamed track of all time. Currently, the song has over 573 million plays, causing it to be the most successful independent song of all time.
