Even though Diplo and Friends, one of the best mix series in electronic music, is still running strong we decided to look back over all the mixes and choose our top 5 favorite guests so far.
5. Zeds Dead 2014 Mix
For this one we are going WAY back to early 2014 and one of the mixes that really brought this duo to the forefront in music. With 1.3 MILLION plays it surely has the mass support of the ZD fan base and sitting at just over 3 years old this mix is still going strong.
4. Slander 2017 Mix
One of the most genre bending mixes we have ever hear this Slander mix jumps from Travis Scott to Moody Good and PhaseOne. This is a more recent release on the famed radio broadcast but has established itself as one of the best with over a million plays in a month.
3. Louis The Child 2016
Fresh off their meteoric rise to electronic stardom the incredible duo of Louis The Child put out a fantastic mix at the end of 2016 to cap off not only a great year for themselves but also the Diplo & Friends series overall. Chilling at just over 1 million plays the mix features crazy remixes of Drake and Miike Snow as well as some smash hits from artists like Big Gigantic and What So Not.
2. Big Gigantic 2014
Having been featured heavily by our previous mix the incredible talents of Big Gigantic, one of Colorado’s favorite groups, see’s their Diplo and Friends feature coming in at #2. According to the duo this was their “first proper mix” for a major series boy did they get their premier set right, its 3 years old and is still a fantastic set of tunes to listen to!
1. ODESZA 2016
With absolutely no doubt in our mind ODESZA wraps up our countdown of our favorite Diplo and Friends mixes with their all time great set from 2016. With over a million and a half plays and featuring tracks like FYI by Troyboi (who also has a fire D&F mix) and the all time great DoubleOreo (San Holo remix) the entire set in amazing from the first beat to the last drop.
We hope you like our top 5 list of Diplo and Friends mixes and if you have some suggestions of comments feel free to tweet us at @elco_official. Enjoy listening!
