The modern age of technology has created opportunity for communication and independence. As Diplo states, "the distribution chain [of the old industry] is broken," allowing individuals the ability to create and distribute on their own terms. Undoubtedly, the lack of major label influence is one of many factors that have driven the EDM industry to the height it's achieved.
In this exclusive thirty-minute interview with Charlie Rose, Diplo and Skrillex discuss the accessibility of electronic music, their collaboration with Justin Bieber, the rumored link between Skrillex and the rise of club drugs, and the process for creating their signature sound.
With the goal of having their music reach as wide an audience as possible, regardless of profit, the duo knows what it takes to be successful, and understand the future of the market. As CharlIe Rose says "Accessibilty is a key."
