In an effort to promote social distancing and isolation practices due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Diplo has revealed that he will be hosting nightly live streams to help entertain the masses.

For the first stream, Diplo (real name Thomas Wesley Pentz) recruited the musical talents of Rhye as well as the art collective Secular Sabbath for a special Saturday night ambient set from his home. After the performance, Pentz shared a short clip of the stream and gave some background on the project they dubbed Corona Sabbath. In his own words: 

"Last night I invited Rhye over for the first Corona Sabbath (We made that up because we we had iron on t-shirt letters... maybe it will stick). While we’re all in self-imposed quarantine and I’m grounded from playing shows I am going to get creative and make up random sets and shows live from my house."

Later on, he explained that the show was not a one-off and that he plans to stream every day in order to entertain those stuck inside. While he didn't reveal too much about the future sets, he did announce that he would be performing with his supergroup, Major Lazer on Sunday, March 15th, at 1:00 PM PST.
