For a brief time in 2007, Diplo was a blogger

Skream if you wanna go faster: exclusive photos of our rickshaw rave around Central London. And who better to play to the people of London than Croydon's first son, Skream. We met him at Oxford Circus for a warm up pint beforehand. He was understandably a little nervous, but determined to bring his A-game for the occasion. Like any good party it was equal parts chaotic, hilar ...

The world famous wasteman is coming to a club night near you   While the celebrity DJ is no new concept - Paris Hilton is now in her fourth year at Amnesia - the fictional character DJ remains relatively untrodden ground.

Before launching into a debate over whether Diplo is currently a massive hypocrite, a few truths must be established   The first is that M&M’s shelled out a five (+) figure for a music producer to make them a jingle. There’s no dispute there; Zedd has never been a confectionary activist. This is not a passion project, it is one that’s been heavily funded and in turn will ...

We’ve all seen bad tattoos before, but some of these are simply upsetting   Tattoos: infamous for leading to massive amounts of regret when ill-advisedly inked as a teenager.
