Diplo és barátai

A DJ-k és a zenészek, énekesek (munka)kapcsolata, viszonya, fontossága korszakonként jelentősen változott (ez külön cikket érdemel).
Az tény, hogy jelenleg minden vonatkozásban (népszerűség, "sztárság", jövedelem,...) egyenrangúnak tekinthetők:
Egy aktuális példa:

Diplo (amerikai DJ, music producer, rapper és songwriter) hét számot írt Madonnával közösen az új, Rebel Heart című lemezére.
Együtt léptek fel a Jimmy Fallon show-ban, amit a "Bitch I’m Madonna" videofelvétele örökít meg:

Madonna's newest album, Rebel Heart has been all the talk of the town. The one and only "random white dude," Diplo was there to help the queen of pop with seven of her latest songs off her album including, Bitch I'm Madonna. Madonna and her partner in crime, Diplo joined forces to perform their track together on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and boy was it entertaining! The performance wouldn't of been complete without matching outfits, crazy dancers, Diplo playing with his CDJ's in the background, and um, freaky and risque moves by Madonna. It's very clear Diplo has gone mainstream and Madonna is leaning more towards electronic music ever since her surprise appearance at Ultra Music Festival during Avicii's set. But hey, she's Madonna.

Diplo egyik projektje a Major Lazer. A trio harmadik albuma június 1-én fog megjelenni.
Ennek egyik -különleges hangzású- dala a "Lean On" (featuring Diplo, DJ Snake, Jillionaire, Walshy Fire and MØ)


 Diplo on making the “Lean On” video in India:
"India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer. Major Lazer has always been a culture mashup and to us, India feels like some kind of special creature with one foot in history and one firmly in the future. The experience is something we’ll never forget.“
