As the final weeks of the year come to a close, everyone’s “Best of 2016” lists are beginning to pour out in gallons. Diplo, being the host of internationally acclaimed BBC 1 radio program Diplo and Friends, is no different. This week, he decided to forego the “and Friends” part of his usual broadcast, instead creating a mix himself chock full of his favorite tracks from 2016.
During the two hours of energetic and unique beats, Diplo was sure to include work from his own side project Major Lazer as well as loads of material from his label mates at Mad Decent. From hip hop and reggaeton to electro and future bass, all corners of the dance music spectrum and beyond are represented in spades.
Listen to Diplo’s favorite songs of 2016 below, and check further down for the complete tracklist.
