On January 20th, 2013, Diplo embarked on what seemed like an impossible journey: playing four shows in one night, in four different cities – Baltimore, Philadelphia, Atlantic City and New York. Our very own Dirty South Joe joined Diplo in Philadelphia and accompanied him for the rest of the night. In the words of Dirty South Joe:
“You might think that a performer in his position and stature would play the same sets at each stop, but he didn’t. Each one was catered to that particular city and crowd. He played each set like he was HUNGRY to do well. He prepared each set in the helicopter and green room, literally up to the minute it was time to spin in each city. Let that be a lesson to all you whippersnappers & old heads alike, to play each and every gig like it’s important…don’t phone it in – EVER! Diplo doesn’t, and that’s why he’s winning. He keeps pushing and striving, and that’s inspiring!
