VIDEO: Diplo At The Middle East Downstairs (Updated!)

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 rapper jealous.

Lights flashed, 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.

Still, few 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.
