In another step to establish himself as the all-seeing-eye of emerging music, Diplo has created a new SoundCloud to repost ‘Diplo Approved Tunes’.
Already an authority on new music distribution – shown through the highly acclaimed Diplo and Friends on BBC1, and that cheeky little monster entity we all know as Mad Decent (have you checked out the BitTorrent bundle, holy smokes!), this move is just another in the Diplo-for-(delicious)-dictator campaign.
Opened yesterday, the account – described as; ‘new music, suggested and approved by Diplo’ – already features a host of tracks from artists inc. Mr. Little Jeans, Schoolboy Q. and the entire Say So EP from our very own Emoh Instead.
After having a thorough listen through the tracks handpicked by Mr. Diplo – it’s pretty easy to see that this guy has respect for a reason. Brother can sift through the shit to find some gems, giving some well earned publicity for some seriously dope emerging talent.
All hail Diplo! Access the full SoundCloud here.
