Few artists in the electronic dance music world have been as busy as Diplo during their time in lockdown. He has hosted a bevy of livestream events to connect with his fans throughout the entirety of the pandemic, like a virtual prom and a Cinco de Mayo-themed stream, and as his forthcoming album looms, he is looking to keep his foot on the gas pedal.
Diplo’s highly anticipated Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil album is primed for its long-awaited debut this Friday, May 29th, 2020. Ahead of its release, he is lassoing his fans to Twitch for the latest edition of his livestream series “The Thomas Wesley Show,” where he will whip out his cowboy hat and preview tracks from the project, according to a press statement.
You can tune into “The Thomas Wesley Show” via Mad Decent‘s Twitch channel tomorrow, May 28th, 2020, from 8PM to 10PM PST (11PM to 2AM ET).
Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil will arrive in full on May 29th, 2020 via RCA Records UK. Fans can look forward to contributions from Thomas Rhett, Zac Brown, Julia Michaels, Young Thug, Noah Cyrus, and Orville Peck, among others. The EDM world as well as the music community at large have expressed their tub-thumping concerns about Diplo’s foray into country music, but he has brushed them off with a phlegmatic middle finger, and rightfully so. You can pre-save the album here.
Louis The Child wants the smoke.
Longtime friends and frequent collaborators, Louis The Child and Whethan are both on the verge of releasing full-length albums. Louis The Child recently announced their debut record Here For Now along with the project’s tracklist and release date and Whethan has been teasing his FANTASY LP for weeks. He recently chatted with EDM.com about the highly anticipated album, which he likened to “getting in a spaceship and leaving Earth off this electronic rainbow.”
Considering all the hype surrounding these two, tomorrow’s beat battle should be a doozy. To make it even more salivating for fans, Louis The Child made sure to include one crucial caveat. “Unreleased music only,” they wrote in their tweet.
Tune into Louis The Child’s Instagram tomorrow, May 28th, to watch these two prodigious dance music acts go head-to-head.

A German open-air club pulled off a socially-distanced event complete with live entertainment.
A Münster-based venue, Coconut Beach in Germany, has held what is believed to be the first socially-distanced event at a club. Promoter TakaTuka threw the event which hosted just 100 attendees at the open-air club. Patrons were each positioned in personal sections which were each distanced several feet apart.
Gerd Janson, who performed at the the socially-distanced event, took solace in the thought that this was a first step towards a return to normal. In a statement provided to Resident Advisor, the DJ commented, “It felt like a reinsurance that it [the event] can go on in some way, shape or form until things can get back to normal.”
Coconut Beach normally has a capacity of 2,000, meaning the 100 person cap marks a 95% attendance reduction compared to the club’s normal cadence of business. As a result, prices were much higher than normal with tickets running €70 each (approximately $76 USD).
Even with the price hike, the club is far from matching the revenues seen prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Resident Advisor report, the club’s managing director Thomas Pieper acknowledged the abnormally high prices, stating that costs will decrease as regulations adjust and as the live event space continues to slowly return to its long-awaited state of normalcy.
