From his early work with Hollertronix to his recent collaborations with Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and No Doubt, 2013 ASCAP Vanguard Award-winning DJ-producer Diplo is consistently one of the most creative producers working in pop music. He’s renowned for mixing in sounds from around the world, creating quirky backdrops that highlight the personalities of the many artists he works with. Diplo will be joined by rising hip-hop star Big Sean, a two-time Grammy nominee and one of the first signings to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music roster. After several acclaimed mixtapes and guest raps, Big Sean’s debut album Finally Famous hit #1 on the US Rap charts, propelling him to mainstream success and a 2012 Best New Artist award from BET. The two will talk about their lives and their art in this wide-ranging discussion. It promises to be an inspiring conversation between two music creators at the top of their game.
