“…DJ, Producer, Musician, Magician, Astronaut…”

15 Jan


“This is Diplo, also Wesley Pentz. I’m a DJ, Producer, Musician, Magician, Astronaut, Paleontologist, Engineer, Chemist.”

Recently, a friend of mine asked me if I was familiar with Diplo. I’m a huge music junkie, but to my surprise I had never heard of him before. He began to play some of his music, and that was the first time I’d heard any of it. We sat down to watch this short documentary and I found myself mesmerized. He is distinct, passionate, smart, driven and ridiculously creative (also pretty sexy).

Here is the clip. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (I think I’ve watched it 10 times by now)
Also, a wonderful interview on him, done by one of my newest favorite addictions, Pitchfork.com.

Cheers, Mear
