Diplo to produce his own exclusive SiriusXM channel
The channel, which will launch on Thursday, March 22, will feature global rhythmic music hand-selected by Diplo, as well as regular original shows hosted by Diplo, Dillon Francis, and Major Lazer members Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Diplo’s Revolution will also showcase the biggest songs in global, hip hop, experimental, and underground dance culture.
The channel will air live festival coverage from the most important electronic music festivals around the world including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, and more. In addition to championing the diverse and eclectic musical tastes that have put Diplo at the forefront of music and pop culture, Diplo’s Revolution will also include songs from his solo projects, Major Lazer, Jack Ü and further upcoming collaborations.
Diplo’s exclusive SiriusXM channel will launch with a special live performance from the Faena Theater in Miami Beach on Thursday, March 22 at 9:00 pm ET. This exclusive performance, for SiriusXM subscribers, will feature DJ sets from Diplo and friends, and will air live on Diplo’s Revolution, on SiriusXM channel 52 and through the SXM App.
“I’m so stoked to be starting my own channel with SiriusXM. Back in 2012, I had a show with them called Blow Your Head, and it’s awesome to be back in the family launching this project together. I’m excited to share my favourite music from all over the world, and can’t wait to have tons of friends on to do the same,” said Diplo.
Diplo will host a weekly music show, Records on Records, that will air on Fridays at 7:00 pm ET. The show will feature the producer’s selections from dance music and beyond worldwide. Additionally, he will also host a monthly show, Diplo’s Wavelength, based on the cultures and music he discovers while touring the world. The show will air on the first Friday of every month.
