I’m not sure
what attracts dance driven hipsters to certain MP3 jockeys, but whatever it is
– Diplo must possess more of it than any other contemporary cracker with a
laptop and two decks.
During this past
Friday’s Mad Decent pandemonium at The Middle East, at least 100 people joined
Philly’s globe-trotting beat champ for what seemed like an hour-long encore.
For real – homeboy had enough heads surrounding him on stage to make a hood
RPMs escalated, and the hard wood needed squeegee men to mop the sweat. Whether he was shredding Santogold, C+C Music
Factory, The Ramones or Dead Prez, Diplo’s approval rating pushed 500 percent.
journalistic exercises are more absurd than reviewing DJ sets – particularly
since we have video. So while we could find adequate adjectives to describe the
decadent and unruly perspiration parade that went down Friday night, you’re
likely better off watching for yourself.
