Diplo is always on the lookout for the next big sound, and it looks like he’s putting money on Chinese producer/singer-songwriter Lay Zhang. Known to fans simply as Lay, the Exo member met Diplo backstage at one of the American’s concerts, and his work ethic left Diplo so impress, the latter had to tweet about it.
“This dude was legit making beats in Logic Pro in my backstage,” Diplo tweets with a picture of the pair. “He’s the truth.”
Lay has previously worked with electronic artists Alan Walker and Steve Aoki. Could a Diplo collaboration be in the future? Diplo’s next release is his collaborative debut album LSD slongside Labrinth and Sia. The LP is due out Monday, April 12. Look out for that coming soon, and check Diplo’s praise for Lay below.
