Diplo Spans The Dance Music Spectrum in Burning Man Set


Bass music icon Diplo has become a staple of the Burning Man gathering in recent years, and his DJ set from the playa this year provides insight into why that could be. Recorded during his performance at the Iguana Art Car, this SoundCloud upload sees the Mad Decent label head cover the full range of electronic music – everything from house to hip-hop.

Starting with 2 Pac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love” – as well as impromptu guest vocals by an inebriated audience member – the mix takes a trip through the landscape of ’90s hip-hop before taking a turn into decidedly four-four territory. Given Diplo’s recent experimentation with future house (speaking of which, his Sleepy Tom collaboration arrives just before the 50 minute mark), it comes as no surprise that he would be capable of selecting music palatable to the sensibilities of burners.
