Almost every large-scale publication wants a piece of the EDM pie, and they've gone so far as to give EDM artists pretigious awards, titles, and even create "best of" lists. Fashion magazine GQ assembled 19 artists for a "19 Musicians That Matter: GQ's Legacy Project" list, and none other than Diplo found himself in one of the spots among artists such as Sam SmithIggy Azalea and more. 

The article detailed Diplo's affiliation with pop stars like Beyonce and Madonna, and reaffirmed the 2015 release dates for the next two Major Lazer albums. Labeled as "Pop's Sonic Explorer," GQ also higlighted Diplo's raucous Mad Decenr Block Party events. Click here to read the full Diplo profile on GQ's list.
