With only two weeks left in 2016, everyone is dropping their “Best of 2016” mixes and Diplo is no diferente!
The American DJ, Diplo, who hosts a show at the BBC Radio 1 program named “Diplo and Friends”, the show is similar to a Residency where he comes in drops a fresh mix and to invites his friends to the takeover for the second hour of the two hour show. However this week’s show Diplo did it differently, rather than invite his “Friends” he took over the full two hours, mixing in his opinion the best tracks of 2016.
During the two hours of energetic and unique beats, Diplo was sure to include work from his own side project Major Lazer as well as loads of material from his label mates at Mad Decent. From hip hop and reggaeton to electro and future bass, all corners of the dance music spectrum and beyond are represented in spades.
Listen to Diplo’s favorite songs of 2016 below, and check further down for the complete tracklist.
