Mad Decent – For the past decade, Mad Decent has been invading your ears with fresh sounds. With humble beginnings in Diplo’s Philadelphia studio, Mad Decent’s unwavering mission is to highlight underground, genre-blurring sounds. Mad Decent tops iTunes, Beatport and Shazam charts worldwide with #1 Dance tracks and albums with releases from artists like Major Lazer, Dillon Francis, RiFF RAFF, Grandtheft, Party Favor, NGHTMRE and Yellow Claw. Mad Decent is also home to Good Enuff, a launchpad for artists breaking the norm; notable releases include Bauuer’s “Harlem Shake” and DJ Snake’s “Bird Machine.” As an extension of the Mad Decent sound, Mad Decent Block Party was established in 2006 and now span across North America and India.
Walshy Fire – An MC and selector who injected extra authenticity into Diplo’s dancehall project Major Lazer, Walshy Fire was born Leighton Walsh, and is the younger brother of Jamaican Cricket legend Courtney Walsh. Born in Miami but raised in Jamaica, he first ran a sound system in Brooklyn, acting as the crew’s DJ. He joined Miami’s Black Chiney Sound System as a DJ and MC in 2003 under the name Walshy Killa, later changing it to Walshy Fire. In 2011 he joined Diplo’s Major Lazer project and appeared on the group’s 2013 album, Free the Universe. He was back for the group’s 2015 album, Peace Is the Mission, and then joined Sanjin and Salvatore Ganacci on their 2016 single, “Nah Tell Them.”
