It’s the Twelfth Day of Diplo, which means this is the final entry in the series for 2015 =(

Focussing the Season Finale on my two favourite Diplo compilations; Random White Dude Be Everywhere and Decent Work For Decent Pay, Vol. 1. Both fit the brief of ‘Party Time’ which, with just over 24 hours to go until Diplo hits the stage for a live show with Major Lazer and for his DJ set at Melbourne’s stereosonic, seems to be the right kinda vibes to push forward with.

Decent Work For Decent Pay, Vol. 1:

Key tracks: “Newsflash” remains one of the best introductions ever on a dance music compilation – in fact, the first three tracks; “Newsflash”, a remix of M.I.A’s “Paper Planes” and Spank Rock’s “Put That Pussy On Me” deliver rapidfire sounds worthy of your best sound system. The previously featured “Heater” also features on this perfect compilation, but the bonkers/amazing/ridiculous/EVERYTHING “Smash A Kangaroo” sings to the patriot Aussie within.

Random White Dude Be Everywhere:

Key tracks: Aside from boasting my all-time favourite Diplo artwork ever (pictured), Random White Dude Be Everywhere is a non-stop assault on your feet, with the best of the best being “Boy Oh Boy” with GTA, two bonza remixes of the immortally iconic “Express Yourself”, and two very differently paced versions of “Revolution” with Faustix, Imanos and Kai. And in true 12 Days of Diplo spirit, the compilation towers in at 12 tracks in length!

Thanks to everybody for reading and following along with the 12 entries. Second of all, thanks to Diplo for the retweet this week:

Needless to say I was pretty damn stoked with this and it pretty much made the rest of my workday that much more bearable.

I took a peek at the stereo set times and was a bit taken aback by how late his DJ set was (he is CLOSING the second main stage with his DJ set AT 9PM)! Admittedly I am old broad with a thousand ailments these days so the slipped disc in my back has gone into something of a panic attack at the thought of the very long, longgggg arsed day ahead. No doubt it’ll all be worth it, and I will – hopefully!! – be up the very front for Diplo’s DJ set. Say hi if you see me! I’ll be sporting a Diplo tee (duh). If I’m not there at the very front by 9PM then I’ve possibly collapsed into a gutter nearby trying to wrangle with my back. Either way I’ll still be in my Diplo tee so say G’day regardless.

See y’all tomorrow for Stereo! #Pray4Adem
