Diplo Daze

When it comes to injecting creativity into the landscape of music, Wesley “Diplo” Pentz can do some pretty extraordinary things.

One of the most credible names in music today, Diplo has a penchant for rocking stadium-sized crowds senseless. The well-seasoned electro-boss has the mind and mojo to create sonic textures that resonate worldwide.

The 34 year old responsible for creating relentlessly dope music has worked with the likes of Snoop, Chris Brown and Usher, among others. Impressing without trying too hard is certainly one of Diplo’s strengths, although it’s still just a sliver of his greatness.

Settled on the rock for a few days now, Diplo deserves a little R&R after finishing a tour in Asia that included stops in Seoul, Beijing, Tokyo and Nagoya to help celebrate the brand-new launch of nightclub and venue the M Restaurant.

As the M aims to redefine the standard of city nightlife, what better way to kick-start the movement than with a DJ-producer responsible for redefining the nightlife soundtrack?
