Diplo Reissues “Florida” & Shares Unreleased Track

Florida - Diplo's 10th Anniversary

Today celebrates the 10th anniversary of Diplo‘s 2004 album Florida. Ten years ago, Thomas Wesley Pentz was just a young man with a dream in the muggy state of Florida. Fast forward ten years, and he is now one of the most popular producers of our time, selling out shows and touring the world. Diplo recently announced that his first ever released album Florida will be getting a reissue treatment in honor of its 10th anniversary. It will be coming out on the same record label it was released a decade ago, Big Dada, on Black Friday (November 28th). Diplo also shared two never before released tracks, As I lay Dying and Into the Sun featuring Martina Topley-Bird. It sounds raw, powerful, and completely nothing like anything he’s ever released before. This is definitely a different side of the producer – and we love every second of it.

I made Florida between a small apartment in Philadelphia and my mother’s house in Florida. I was working late nights and taking a bus through the city every night, smoking weed, putting on headphones and just making things I never heard before and could just imagine. Making this record created an entirely new world for me. Now that I think back it’s a very strange beginning and it’s crazy it’s been 10 years since its first release, but really, this record represents my first 23 years of life – what I had inside of me and where I came from so I’m excited to revisit it.
