Last Saturday at Le Bain, Milk Gallery and Mad Decent joined forces to celebrate the release of Diplo’s photo book 128 Beats Per Minute: Diplo’s Visual Guide to Music, Culture and Everything in Between (Universe). Shot by Annie Leibovitz’ former photo assistant, Shane McCauley and spanning seven years and thirty-two countries, the book is a National Geographic tour into the world of a superstar DJ – screaming crowds, gorgeous beaches and lots of airports. If you’re not familiar with the DJ/producer, fashion designer Alexander Wang describes him in the forward, “Diplo masters the space between DJ and producer with a true talent and craft … that’s his gift.” There’s also a photo exhibition at the Milk Gallery this weekend and check out this killer behind the scenes video.
This Saturday at Le Bain, Milk Gallery and Mad Decent celebrate the launch of ‘128 Beats Per Minute, Diplo’s Visual Guide to Music, Culture and Everything in Between’. Music by Jim-E Stack and Lloydski. Doors open 11pm.
