Fourteen years ago a young American musician in Japan sent a package containing a CDR to Big Dada with hopes of being that “avant garde dancehall” that they were looking for; fast forward to 2014 and that same musician now runs his own label Mad Decent and is better known for his Grammy-nominated productions with the likes of Beyonce and Justin Bieber.

We are of course talking about Wesley Pentz AKA Diplo, who has now announced the re-release of his debut LP ‘F10RIDA’ including ‘Epistomology Suite’ which was released around the same time, as well as five previously unreleased tracks.

Looking back on its first release Diplo explains “Making this record created an entirely new world for me. Now that I think back it’s a very strange beginning and it’s crazy it’s been 10 years since its first release, but really, this record represents my first 23 years of life – what I had inside of me and where I came from so I’m excited to revisit it.” 

F10RIDA is out with Big Dada on December 1st…

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
