Hear Diplo go back to his roots on the “old school” mix you can’t miss

Most weeks on Diplo & Friends, dance music’s everywhere man hands the reins to up-and-comers he’s vibing on. But for the latest edition of his BBC Radio 1 Xtra show, Diplo went solo for the full two hours to deliver two very different mixes.

First up on this week’s show was an hour-long throwback to his Hollertronix days, the party Diplo threw together with his friend DJ Low-Budget in Philadelphia back in the early aughts – way, way before he was playing mainstages and topping charts.

Stacks of old Diplo tunes (like his Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger remix and flips of The Beatles) feature alongside  old Baltimore club classics. As Diplo puts it, these songs are “the genesis of where Diplo & Friends came from”.

For the second hour, the Mad Decent head fast forwarded to 2017 for a mix full of brand new hip-hop  – think Migos, Gucci Mane & Drake and Travis Scott. Hear both mixes below or via the BBC Radio 1 website.

Or for another Diplo & Friends mix, catch up with the debut contribution from Sydney-bred superstar Golden Features, who delivered his first mix for the show earlier this month packing everyone from Boys Noize to Nero and Daft Punk into the tracklist.
