Who is Don Diablo
Don Diablo is a producer, DJ, musician, singer, visualist, retired streaker and to some people an imaginary friend. His musical journey kicked off at the age of fifteen, when he started making music for short movies he was directing. With loads of time on his hands, Don Diablo was able to experiment with music and fine-tune his production skills. The outcome of this all: he signed his first record deal before he turned 16. Two years later he had already released 35 records under many different guises.
Trademark hype & creativity
Don Diablo always plays with 4 decks when he DJs, to give that extra bit of hype and creativity that has become his trademark. His friends like to describe his sound as a mix of Punk Funk, Electro Breaks and Distorted Disco, while Don thinks it’s just good music. His tour schedule takes him from Hong Kong to London and from Miami to Sydney. While travelling the world, Don Diablo also managed to complete his studies and scoop up a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism.
Don Diablo as producer
Besides his own career as an artist, Don Diablo is also producing for other people. You can hear one of his co-productions ‘Make You Pop’ in the worldwide Diplo Blackberry campaign. Don worked with artists like Rox, Example, Dragonette, Sidney Samson, Diplo and Ou est le Swimming pool. He also remixed for the Mika, Chemical Brothers, Cassius, Gorillaz, Public Enemy, Iggy Pop, Plump DJ’s and many others.
Active in the blogscene
Don has also been very active in the blogscene, always trying to connect to the early adaptors around the globe. According to North American music blog aggregator The Hype Machine Don was named Most Blogged Artist in the world several times. This gave him lots of kudos from the internet community and the alternative press. It also brought him in contact with the remarkable singer Martina Sorbara of the Canadian electropop group Dragonette. A collaboration between the two resulted in Don’s single ‘Animale’.
