Diplo is launching a new Sirius XM channel next week, which will showcase the multifarious music man's hand-picked beats from across the world, alongside shows hosted by the likes of Dillon Francis.
Set to go live on Thursday 22nd March, just as Miami Music Week steps up a gear, the channel, Diplo's Revolution, will also represent hip hop, experimental, and dance music in live settings, with coverage set to come from a host of big name events, including Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival.
On the launch date, a performance will be broadcast from Faena Theatre, Miami Beach, at 9PM Eastern Time, featuring sets from Diplo himself, and choice guests. Following this, Diplo— a major fan and friend of Calvin Harris, amongst other things— will be back every Friday for his Records On Records show, with a new monthly, Diplo's Wavelength, delivered on the first Friday of each month. Meanwhile, Electric Area, currently Channel 52 on Sirius XM, is being discontinued.
