Editorial Reviews

Review

"A new book, 128 Beats Per Minute, collects pictures of Diplo hanging out in exotic locales with beautiful people; the Travel Channel wanted to make a show documenting his journeys (it fell through); a Korean beer company paid him $80,000 to play a show with Major Lazer, his whimsical dancehall project; and billion-dollar brands from BlackBerry to Beyoncé have hired him (the former for an ad campaign, the latter for two songs on 4M), hoping that some of his cool will rub off." ~Rolling Stone

"...this book could easily be the coffee table purchase of the year." ~The Gallant

"...driven by photographs from former Annie Leibowitz assistant Shane Mccauley, will be released this April by Universe Publishing, an imprint of 'famed Italian purveyor of art tomes' Rizzoli New York." ~Fader Magazine

"Known internationally as a curator and influencer among the world’s top DJs, producers, and artists, Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, is at the nexus of music, fashion, and cultural trends." ~Publishers Weekly

"Want to travel the globe with a Grammy-nominated DJ? Hitching a ride with Diplo, may prove tricky, but fans can treat themselves to a vicarious excursion with the Mad Decent founder's new book, 128 Beats Per Minute." ~Kidult.com

I have had this on preorder for quite a while, and im impressed. This book really tracks Diplo from his beginnings up to where he is now. Its a good view of the Mad Decent label and the music that Diplo has worked so hard on and the touring he has done.

Being mostly pictures, everything is properly captioned and laid out in a very readable/viewable manner. Its like a visual insight into his life. If you want to complement this book have a look at the short documentary about diplo that is on youtube :)

Saw Diplo play at Stereosonic after having my eye on this book for a while and that convinced me to make the purchase. A very interesting look into the history of his music and the people that he's worked with.

Some great photography and insight into the life of a ripper EDM producer.
