Diplo: Mad Decent heah-honcho, game-changing producer, and maker of music that is constantly evolving, occasionally weird, but always booty-bounceable. His stage shows as Major Lazer get girls doing things that would make Miley Cyrus blush, and he’s just released a new EP called Revolution. He took to Reddit today for an Ask Me Anything session – here’s what we learned.
