American DJ, record producer, rapper, and songwriter Diplo is coming to Cove Manila this Friday, May 11 to bring the summer to a frenzy!
Thomas Wesley Pentz, or Diplo to the rest of the world, has worked with numerous musicians during his rise to fame.
He broke into the mainstream with several chart-topping hits like “Imperfections” and “Swerve” with Starrah, and “Get It Right” featuring MØ; and among his vast portfolio of collaborations are with artists including Shakira, Bruno Mars, No Doubt, Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, and Beyonce for her “Lemonade” album.
The international party icon has also done a range of collective musical projects with fellow EDM producer and songwriter Skrillex, bagging a Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album as Jack Ü. On top of this, he has also collaborated with DJ Switch in creating Major Lazer whose LP “Peace is the Mission” climbed to number 12 on Billboard 200 in 2015.
Regularly making it to the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Diplo has since made a name not only as a musician and artist, but also as a producer founding the Los Angeles-based label Mad Decent – whose work with Brooklyn DJ Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” has earned the song worldwide success.
