With a music lineup like that and Cabo’s paradise to partake of, this is one true dance/EDM fans can’t miss.
Diplo and Higher Ground
Over Diplo’s 15-year career, he’s managed to effortlessly glide between genres, building a reputation in the EDM, trap, hip-hop, country, ambient scenes and more, proving that he’s a true musical artist and not a one-trick pony. The Music Essentials shares, “His production accolades include keystone work with Justin Bieber, Skrillex, Sia, Madonna, M.I.A and countless others. Beyond his founding membership of Major Lazer, he is also a member of the super-groups Jack Ü alongside Skrillex and LSD with Sia and Labrinth, along with his Silk City project with Mark Ronson.
Higher Ground sees Diplo gather his devout fan base around authentic tones of house and techno. In its short tenure, the label has already seen premiere releases from the likes of Aluna, Sonny Fodera, Walker & Royce, VNSSA, Wax Motif, Wilkinson, MK, and Andhim. Longtime friend of Diplo and Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus blessed the imprint in 2020 as the North American home for his ‘Flourishes’ LP and his collaborative single with Diplo and Jungle.”
Diplo’s ability to build collaborations, launch careers, and bust genre boundaries is an ode to his creative mind and a promise of things to come in his storied career.
