Wesley Pentz, the 35-year-old, Mississippi-born producer known to the world as Diplo, is everywhere, working with mega-huge pop stars (Beyoncé, Usher), while promoting various dance music strains—kuduro, dubstep, the Internet-crushing Harlem Shake—through his Mad Decent label. This week, the imprint’s Block Party tour comes to town for two days, bringing with it a lineup of young zeitgeist-tapping talent, including bass-heavy trap producer Lunice and Korea's "Baddest Female" popstar CL.
