- Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, is one of the most dynamic forces in music today. The Grammy-winning artist is as much an international brand as he is a musician/DJ/producer. Year after year, he’s proven himself to be a ubiquitous cultural figure, consistently bridging high and low, mainstream and underground, with remarkable tact and reverence.
- A decade since its inception, Diplo’s original group Major Lazercontinues to influence the sound of modern music. Most recently, Major Lazerunveiled“Lay Your Head On Me” featuring Marcus Mumfordfrom their forthcoming fourth album, which followed“Que Calor,” featuring J Balvin and Dominican dembow pioneer El Alfa, and “Make It Hot,” featuringBrazilian superstar Anitta. Last summer Major Lazer was also featured on Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack alongside ShattaWale on “ALREADY”.
- Diplo consistently exercises his collaborative spirit and singular talent for transcending genre and cultural boundaries. With the formation of two new groups, Diplo continues his streak as a global hitmaker—LSD, a psychedelic supergroup with Siaand Labrinththat has been streamed over one billion times and Silk City, the disco-influenced venture with Mark Ronson.
- Diplo continues to tour the world over, playing 300 shows a year and a legendary Vegas residency with Major Lazer and under his own moniker. Recent stops include Pakistan, Brazil, Nepal, Bangladesh, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Croatia, China, Mexico, Italy, Korea, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Hungary and beyond
