Diplo Publishes Book; Slams Coachella and Drops New Track in the Process
January 24, 2012 § 1 Comment
Diplo expands his career with a new picture book in the mix. Titled “128 Beats Per Minute: Diplo’s Visual Guide to Music, Culture and Everything in Between,” the book showcases the mega-producer’s trips around the world during the span of seven years.
Shot by photographer Shane McCauley and including a foreword by Alexander Wang, each chapter is based on a different country and features a playlist for that country.
The new book will separate Diplo from many artists, especially the ones performing at Coachella. Last week, he tweeted (then deleted):
“maybe im just throwing shade but coachsmella looks pretty lame this year.. u used to be a place to check out new bands/music.”
“besides snoop and dre thats boss shit right there.”
“its like bootleg ultra w a few bands that are ‘safe'”.
But don’t fret; Diplo is still collaborating with some dope artists. Read on for a new Mad Decent collaboration track!
Well Diplo is always promoting new artists, which is evident in his new production collaboration with ATL rap duo FKi’s “I Think She Ready” featuring Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, off their upcoming mixtape Mad Decent Presents FKi
