Skrillex, Diplo, & Grimes Touring Canada By Train

The best live act I saw at SXSW is touring Canada by train, and he's taking Diplo and Grimes with him! By now, the fact that I love Skrillex has passed into some sort of Stereogum-infamy history, but seriously, Canadians, if you get a chance, watch this guy melt the faces of vast number… More »

Usher – “Climax” Video

Earlier this year, Usher linked with Diplo to make "Climax," a pretty amazing heartbroken R&B track with masterful dance-music flourishes and an excellently subtle string arrangement from indie-classical wunderkind Nico Muhly.

February's Monthly Mix makes up for the grievous error in January's Monthly Mix, namely having omitted Bear In Heaven's "Reflection Of You." No offense (none taken). That song's great! Here it comes flowing out of Violens' smooth and shifty new wave, and into Diplo's bounce showcase "Express Yourself," which in turn dives into Ceremony'… More »

Diplo Disses Coachella Lineup

To many of us, this year's Coachella lineup looks like the best thing the festival has put together in ages. Radiohead! Dre and Snoop! So many '90s-band reunions! A rare live show from the Weeknd!
