Don Diablo, one of the biggest DJs in the world is coming to the UK on tour later this month! He’s also got an ear for a huge tune. We got the EDM superstar to make us an exclusive playlist, giving him free reign to pick whatever music he wanted. He chose to pick six tracks that he likes to listen to in his (what we imagine is a very nice) car, and gave us a bit of background on why. There are some humongous tunes below. Enjoy!
Jamie XX – “Gosh”
Everything is amazing about this. Jamie XX always knows how to impress me and the music video for this song is equally genius!
Toto – “Africa”
One of my favourite 80-ies classics. I am a huge Toto fan, these guys basically knew how to make the perfect pop song. Over and over again.
Kavinsky – “Nightcall”
This track was selected as the title song for Drive for a good reason…it really makes me want to drive into the night to an unknown destination while wearing my sunglasses. At night.
MGMT – “Electric Feel”
My favourite MGMT song. This is one of those songs I wish I would have made. If I had friends. And we had a band.
Pharoahe Monch – “Simon Says”
One of my favourite hip-hop classic. Gets me pumped every time when I need a shot of gangsta infusion.
Ryuichi Sakamoto – “Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrence”
Ryuichi Sakamoto is such a genius and this song is a treasure. Always makes me reflect on life.
