Grammy Award winning recording artist Miguel first hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂAll I Want Is You,ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ from his major label debut album of the same name, a song which blended a stark hip-hop beat with MiguelÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs creamy vocals to form a sound that was absent from the radio and established Miguel as one of the most unique and soulful voices in modern R&B. The album also features ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂSure Thing,ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂQuickie.ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ MiguelÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs follow up was his critically-acclaimed, four-time Grammy Award nominated, sophomore album ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂKaleidoscope Dream,ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ which features his third US #1 hit single ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂAdorn,ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ the intoxicating ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂHow Many Drinks?ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ, ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂDo YouÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ¦ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ and ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂThe Thrill.ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. Lead single ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂAdorn,ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ written and produced by Miguel, garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks becoming the longest running #1 in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart.

Diplo’s musical creds speak for themselves, remixing: Gwen Stefani, Le Tigre, DJ Shadow (amongst others) and producing for Kano and the very fine M.I.A. to name only shows this guy has a talent or two.
Renaissance Man meets Bart Simpson down South
Wes Pentz aka Diplo was born in Tupelo, Mississippi. Most of his childhood was spent in Florida, where his father still owns and runs a bait shop. His youth was spent discussing ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂgators with his uncle, working in popÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs store and dreaming of dinosaurs living hidden out in the swamp. As he grew up he began to channel these obsessions into music (Miami Bass being a touchstone, of course) and film.
After a brief stint at film school and a season out on the shrimp boats, the need to escape from America for a while led to some time in Japan, from where he sent the beat doodles he had been working on to Big Dada in the UK and was promptly signed. He returned to the US and moved to Philly where he and another DJ, Low Budget, began their now-legendary Hollertronix sessions. The Hollertronix mix cd, ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂNever ScaredÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ followed and later in the year the lost classic ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂEpistemology SuiteÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ EP became his first release for Big Dada.
ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂFloridaÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ followed soon after, the debut album which he described as ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂbased loosely on Wiliam FaulknerÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂGo Down MosesÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ with a definite red clay shrimp and manatee dirty south feel.ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ Featuring vocals from Martina Topley-Bird, Vybz Cartel, PEACE, Pantera Os Danadinhos and Sandra Melody it showed the breadth of DiploÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs imagination and the depth of his influences. It was welcomed ecstatically by those who found it but is still to reach the audience it deserved.
