Social media is paying off big dividends for Diplo fans today, as the superstar DJ/producer has offered up some musical treats for reaching a Facebook milestone.
“Free music since y’all hit 1 milli,” Diplo posted on his Facebook page last night (May 6), adding a Soundcloud link that takes users to “Diplo’s 1 Million Facebook Follower Bootleg Pack!!,” a collection of nine free songs accessible to download for free as a thank you for amassing so many fans and followers on the social network.
Among the free tracks are collaborations with ETC!ETC! (“Diplo’s Theme”) and Ape Drums (“Duttiest Wine”) as well as new remixes of such tracks as the producer’s infamous ode to twerking, “Express Yourself.”
Diplo is gearing up for a busy summer; he’s set to launch the 2014 edition of the Mad Decent Block Party tour on July 26 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, featuring a rotating cast of artists including Outkast, Skrillex and Flume.
