About Diplo

Diplo’s description of himself on Twitter is pretty accurate: “random white dude be everywhere." Whether he’s DJing, producing, songwriting, or rapping, Diplo is on the airwaves, at the music festivals, in the studio, and at the afterparty. He’s worked with M.I.A., Britney Spears, Madonna, Beyonce, Snoop Dogg, and Usher, has a YouTube channel with DJs Skrillex and A-Trak, and has been studied by corporations learning how to use social media. In 2015, he paired up with Skrillex to create Jack Ü, which was responsible for Justin Bieber’s summer hit “Where Are Ü Now." For an inside look behind Diplo tracks, follow his Snapchat @diplo3000, where he posts daily.
