D D D Diplo at CTRL


On CTRL each month a different band edits the MySpace blog then curates a live show. This month it’s Diplo, who is ever since one of our all time favorite artists at Chromemusic and live on the site now and has chosen Micachu & The Shapes, Benga, Primary 1 and Mumdance for their show at Fabric, London, December 16th.

Check out the project at http://www.myspace.com/topmanctrl and show them some love. The guys of CTRL (namely Theo) hooked us up with an interview which you can read after the jump plus CTRL gave us the opportunity to give away a shirt designed by Diplo. Only 50 have been made so they’re super limited. Since we’re all about sharing and networking we won’t ask you any stupid questions. All you have to do is to comment on this post. Don’t forget to leave your mail so we can get back to you in case you get lucky.
