He’s one of the biggest names in dance music and later this month, Diplo will be heading to South Africa for one show only. The iconic producer will be performing at The Sheds @1 Fox in the Johannesburg city central on the 23rd of April and is ready to bring the heat.
The Grammy-winning producer has had both solo success, as well as massive hits with his side projects ‘Jack Ü’ with Skrillex and Major Lazer with Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire. In the past year, Major Lazer released the hits “Cold Water” featuring Justin Bieber and MØ (which debuted at #1 on the iTunes songs chart in 58 countries worldwide) and the new single “Run Up” with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj which is dominating the airwaves at the moment. The producer also received three Grammy nominations in 2016 for Producer of the Year, Best Dance Recording (for Where Are Ü Now with Skrillex and Justin Bieber), and Best Dance/Electronic Album (for Skrillex And Diplo Present Jack Ü) and worked on “Hold Up” and “All Night,” Beyoncé’s latest release “Lemonade”.
Diplo was also behind the smash hit “Lean On”, alongside Major Lazer and MØ. The song became the biggest single off his career. The song became the most streamed song on Spotify of all time with more than 850 million streams, and only nine months after its release, the corresponding music video for “Lean On” became one of only a handful of videos to reach 1 billion views on YouTube, and is in the Top 10 most watched videos of all time.
The producer is expected to put on a show to remember this month. Diplo will also be joined by a selection of South Africa’s top electronic acts hosted across two stages – The Fox Junction Main Stage and The Goodluck Bar Stage – each setup with a massive lighting and production rig delivering an explosive visual and sonic experience.
