DJing is not an easy activity. Some people don’t even consider DJs as musicians, as they just use their laptops to create some new sound. It seems that everybody can do it.
DJ Diplo is unbelievably rich now. But when he started his career of a DJ, he could hardly make the ends meet. “It is easy to become popular now. You just need to upload the song to YouTube and make money”, he says. But in his youth he used any opportunity to play his music.
He did many jobs, including working at subway and school teaching. He played in cafeterias and bars and didn’t know, in what direction to develop. “I wanted to become a film maker or writer, but actually had no concrete idea”, Diplo told in his interview.
He was catapulted to musician Olympus after the release of “Piracy Funds Terrorism” with a singer M.I.A. In 2002 he presented his album, which he named as himself.
Diplo is busy person nowadays. He operates three projects simultaneously. Born Thomas Wesley Pentz develops his solo project Diplo. He is the part of duo Jack Ü (together with Skrillex) and the member of the band Major Lazer as well. The hard-working musician has his own recording label, named “Mad Decent” as well.
Diplo beat for many celebrities. He cooperated with Madonna and many others.
