Amidst the sea of passé entertainers trying to rekindle their lost stardom by attempting to debut their DJ career in a scene they know nothing of, Electronic Dance Music fans are sometimes graced with a diamond in the rough. Following his anticipated performance, Shaquille O’Neil, aka DJ Diesel, took TomorrowWorld attendees by surprise with an unexpected display of his skills to a surprisingly large audience.
The 43-year-old retired NBA player was apparently coached by none other than The Chainsmokers, in preparation for his TomorrowWorld showcase and by people’s online reactions it seems as if everything went as well as it could have. So for your own enjoyment here are a few reactions and videos of people in the crowd:
