Diplo is lassoing his fans to Twitch to preview tracks from “Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil” ahead of it’s release on Friday.

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 MichaelsYoung 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

Maybe the real diamonds were the festivals we attended in Minecraft along the way.

With major festivals moving to a digital landscape for the foreseeable future in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, promoters, organizers, and artists have been finding some interesting and unique ways to make the virtual event experience more memorable than a straightforward livestream. Thankfully, Rave Family has just the recipe for such an experience, within the world of modern video game classic Minecraft.

Enter Electric Blockaloo, a virtual festival featuring over 300 artists, recreations of real life and fictional venues, mini games, and more, all taking place on Minecraft servers. Fans are able to play and attend on desktop or mobile computers via links to artist “guestlists” that will be shared via social media, and pay a GA or VIP admission charge for access to Minecraft servers, exclusive Discord servers, exclusive releases, and more. 

As for the lineup? It’s simply too massive to list every artist that will be playing, but with DJ sets from JAUZ, Diplo, Tritonal, Getter, Lee Burridge, TOKiMONSTANicole Moudaber, and more, fans are sure to get their fill of great music. Furthermore, specially curated stages are being hosted by the likes of Anjunabeats (cleverly referred to within Electric Blockaloo as “Anjunablocks”), Buygore, This Never Happened, Dirtybird, and more. 

Attendees can also experience mini games within the digital landscape and wonderful recreations of iconic venues like The Gorge in the Pacific Northwest and Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. Fictional venues like The Office‘s Dunder-Mifflin location are also included, showcasing the limitless possibilities within Minecraft’s 112-million monthly user platform. 

Electric Blockaloo is set to be a historic dance music event that EDM fans across the world can enjoy from home. The digital festival runs June 25th to 28th, 2020. More details and a full festival lineup can be found at the official Electric Blockaloo website
