All y’all giving so much credit to Diplo, check out Boaz van De Beatz, King Henry and Jr Blender. These guys ghost-produced 90% of Diplo‘ songs including Jack Ü and Major Lazer

Diplo is just the face, the people who actually write and produce the music he's involved with are in the background. He doesn't really produce shit. There's several producers on every track he puts out. He's the money and the face, not the talent. Even when he was in Jack U, Sonny did all of the actual work and Diplo just jumped around and stoop on top of the decks. He pays people to make music and then slaps his name on it. He's like a P. Diddy. Put him on his own in a studio and he wouldn't make anything worth hearing.

So much respect for diplo. A lot of people only know his new pop stuff and thats a bummer, because mad decent (his record label)'s early stuff and even now has helped a lot of lesser known artists and has had a huge influence on music. Everyone out there, go check out his Florida album. Go check out Dj Blaqstarr. Go check out Bonde Do Role. Go listen to early mad decent stuff. he's always been pushing music in weird directions and it's super awesome that he's getting recognized for it. Big up diplo.

Zimzim (2 года назад)
Only reason why diplo makes big records is because he has the opportunity to do so, all his hits are so simply to produce. The marketing around it tho is big and that's why it sells, not because he produced em.

Zimzim lmao who cares his music is good
Zimzim (1 год назад)
+Spencer El Katy Perry also makes millions and million of 'fans' enjoy her music, doesn't mean an average person can't do what she does if they were in her spot :) You're comparing his career achievement with producing talent, which isn't the same subject at all. He made it, good for him. When you know the right people, you don't need to trick anyone. If he's happy that he's making millions, then i'm definitely happy for him. But producers don't respect him as an ARTIST.
SpenceTheMence (1 год назад)
+Nazim Well since you're so set with your opinion I don't know why you commented since people would obviously start debating with you but here I go: I never said Diplo made it alone, I said he didn't make it simply because of marketing. I said he made it due to numerous factors, and if you think he's an idiot and a terrible producer than you don't know shit about making music. His shit sounds good and has high quality production value. Yeah he didn't make it just because he is "good" but he didn't make it because he tricked some top artists into thinking he was talented either. You can keep your opinion and I'll keep mine, but at the end of the day Diplo is making millions and people are enjoying his music while you are complaining. This will be my last answer, but nothing we say will change anything.
Zimzim (1 год назад)
+Spencer El Any idiot surrounded with the right people can make it if they're in the right spot to do it and have the team to make it. He didn't make it alone. Let's take for example 'marshemello', another terrible 'artist' that won't last more than another year. He started his career as 'Dotcom'. For years he wasn't going nowhere. So he decided to add a lil bit of marketing to it and put a mask (how original) and with the HUGE help of tiesto skrillex and diplo he eventually he made it to the bigger scene. It's the same thing with Diplo. Now it'll be my last answer.
SpenceTheMence (1 год назад)
+Nazim "Only reason why diplo makes big records is because he has the opportunity to do so." Yeah you said what I thought you did. "The marketing is big and that's why it sells." So what am I missing?

You mean overrated especially when his biggest song is not even produce by him, Lean On was produced by dj snake, in a french he said he got the acapella and did the full song and even the producer behind Major Lazer is Boaz van de beats.

aligboyakasha (2 года назад)
He does have a bit of a signature sound in that he uses a lot of "Wah" and pitch bended sounds, such as on horsey and express yourself. it's definitely more present on the songs that are labeled as "diplo" for an artist, and definitely in major lazer

I liked his old music... Before he started making dubstep. But people evolve soooo
Brad Bailey (2 года назад)
+Brent Rawlings listen to the full Florida album. It's his debut album. And also his best work. Unfortunately, it's the last time his music had "heart." I like his new stuff, I just don't feel "soul," in it... His older stuff was reminiscent of DJ Shadow level excellence :) (The full Florida album is on youtube, you should check it out). :)
Brent Rawlings (2 года назад)
yeah wow I didn't know he was putting out full bodies of work in 2004!! First stuff I started listening of his was the Revolution EP. I knew he produced for pop artists before that, but thanks for this
Brad Bailey (2 года назад)
+Brent Rawlings yeahh. Check out his Florida album. Sounds nothing like his recent stuff... His old stuff was abstract. His new stuff is more for partying I guess.
Brent Rawlings (2 года назад)
Yeahhh agreed. I like that about him though; no off-limits. Sometimes he's hit and miss...but when it hits it's next level
Brad Bailey (2 года назад)
+Brent Rawlings since pairing up with people known best for dubstep... Regardless, I just miss his original debut sound. But again, people change... Hist first album was very abstract tho. He's had a variety of sounds over the years.

TheHotFalafel (2 года назад)
Any one else wondering why Diplo didn't stick to his old Florida sound? I gotta be brutally honest here, I don't like EDM... lemme rephrase that... I don't like popular EDM. I don't really like the stuff that Diplo is doing now, verses the stuff I've heard on Florida. To me, Florida was like something Bonobo makes, but more energetic and new hip hop. It had a really smooth vibe and a cutting edge at the same time. But now, it's all club twerking EDM music. Now granted, today's Diplo is actually better than some of the by the numbers crap EDM "producers" scribble out on their laptop and make billions off of. Jack U was surprisingly decent. To be honest Skrillex, is also one of the more tolerable EDM producers now that I think about it. Because both put more thought and their own creative curve on their music. It's risky, experimental and aggressive. Both make a decent team. But guys... I would have loved Diplo if he stuck with the Florida sound....

He states, in the video youre commenting on, that the instrumental track wasn't similar to the final except for the genre. I would be so surprised if either Nicki or Rihanna felt ANY envy or regret regarding 'Lean On' save for any common competitive envy when anyone thats not them is sitting atop the Bilboard charts.

probably not. they've got enough hits, fans, records sold, etc. what's one more? besides, any time Rihanna wants to make a platinum dance track, she just hits up Calvin Harris lol. i'm sure neither are losing sleep over this

troy montano (1 месяц назад)
Why do you have to play an instrument to be a musician? I play drums and have been producing music for three years. You will never be a good producer if you are not a musician. Learning to make music using software is more complicated than it seems and if I never learned to play the drums, it would take an extra 5 years for me to get where I am today
Guy Gamer (4 месяца назад)
@Jason1920 Diplo released his debut album "Florida" in 2004. It's ground breaking trip-hop and nothing like he makes now. Widely regarded as one of the best albums in it's genre. He's an extremely talented producer, and to have a good career it means he's got to make pop music. But Diplo does have his "good music", even if it was released a long time ago.
theawecabinet (4 месяца назад)
"..Define the term "shitty music."..." Music that relies on constant sweeteners and general over production to maintain the listener's interest (as well as sexually provocative dancers in high cut leotards etc). Music producers are such hot property today because pop music has gone completely down the toilet and is now just formulaic crap - everyone in the industry agrees with this. The job of the modern pop music producer is to take the scrap of rancid dog meat that has been lying in the sun for two weeks (ie the basic stripped down pop song), and cover it in all sorts of exotic spices and then present it on the plate in an attractive and innovative way ...... but underneath it is still just rancid dog meat. Nobody will care for any of these hits in 5 or 10 or 50 years. They will just give people ear ache because they are so hyped in the upper mid range (the audio equivalent of adding loads of sugar). By training the public to respond to slick production, rather than musical originality and artistic expression, the corporate music biz is able to turn art and culture into a factory churning out cookie cutter hits by 'artists' who have ZERO artistic control over their music or lyrics. That is why all pop songs and videos look and sound the same and cover the same extremely narrow range of subjects and emotions...... all of which just happen to perfectly align with corporatism (ego, violence, greed, money/ materialism, hierarchy, dominance, sex as power, aggression, moral relativism, hedonism, mind control and slavery). Most modern pop videos are basically just PR adverts for corporate fascism, if you break them down. They are satanic (in a literal sense, meaning they promote and normalise the main tenets of satanism). Thus pop music in the west is every bit as censored and controlled as music in any soviet nation ever was... there is fundamentally no difference between having your pop artists cavort on the ground covered in baby oil while celebrating the satanic values of corporatism..... and having them sing folksy ditties celebrating the state's annual grain production in buttoned up cardigans and sensible shoes. I forgot what the original question was.... Anyway it's all very silly.

Oh man you guys have me so heated I'm gonna write a heated comment ugghh, good music is good music and you guys obviously don't know what you're talking about either so please stop being little chodes. I'd love to hear your productions that must apparently be way better because you must both be true musicians which automatically makes you a better producer than 1/2 of Jack U. And I didn't know you had to be an English professor to write a stupid youtube comment. I appreciate that you've mistaken me to be a fool because that is proof of your dumbassery (yes i know that's not a word)
