Diplo (Founder of Mad Decent Records/Grammy Nominated Producer/World Renowned DJ)Diplo

Diplo (his alias, short for Diplodocus was derived from his childhood fascination with dinosaurs) said in a statement: “Our new extension of the label, Jeffree’s, is the best new music– the most progressive, the most amazing, the deepest underground and subterranean sounds from the Earth’s crust; the best sounds available and it’s free. It’s what Mad Decent was originally made for– new artists thinking outside of the box.” Diplo has also worked on production and mixtape projects with Justin Beiber, M.I.A., Beyonce, Snoop Lion, and Usher, along with other notable artists.

The idea behind Jeffree’s is to showcase innovative sounds from some of the world’s best up-and-coming producers.  A new single will be available for free every other Thursday on the Mad Decent website with higher resolution versions of the songs sold as part of a compilation that will be available on iTunes and Beatport every two months.

Mad Decent Records offers a premium account on its website for $10 a month.  Members who sign up for a premium account will receive releases before anyone else, receive a 15% discount in the merch store, access to selected releases from the label’s catalog, and exclusive remixes, mixtapes, and live sets.  Members can also stream or download all of the material whenever or wherever (WAV/MP3 formats).
