Mad Decent Tour

Artists: Diplo, Abe Vigoda, Boy 8-Bit, Telepathe
Recommended If You Like: M.I.A., Santogold, Daft Punk, Justice

Mad Decent Tour kicks off tonight in New York! Mad Decent is Diplo's record label. For those of you who don't know Diplo, he's one of my top three favorite DJs. Diplo is known for mixing in Brazilian funk and reggae. He's produced tracks for M.I.A. and Santogold and released a ton of amazing remixes.

The tour's headliner is Diplo himself and opening for him is one of my favorite up and coming DJs, Boy 8-Bit. All of his tracks make me want to dance. His music is a bit crazier than Diplo's, very electro and bass heavy. Even with few to no vocals, the songs are incredibly catchy. Get a taste of Mad Decent by streaming tracks here and here.

The tour will stop through major cities across the US with two dates in Canada. For ticket information and here even more music, visit
