"This is diplo; also Wesley Pentz..."

Here at SME, we’re rather partial to moving documentation; especially when it gives us an insight into the people who cause us to skank. Diplo, the man behind record label Mad Decent and his avatar Major Lazer, has been featuring this short documentary at this years SXSW.

Whilst preparing for his annual Philadelphia Mad Decent Block Party, Diplo – unsurprisingly – reveals himself to be a salt of the earth kind-of-guy, talking about the influences he takes from studying both film and anthropology.

Shot mesmerizingly by director Wing-Yee Wu, this is one not to miss. Enjoy.
