Diplo: 'I make music on my own terms'
In an interview with PopEater, the producer, who has collaborated with such artists as M.I.A., Britney Spears and Beyoncé, revealed that he has always been adamant about achieving success on "[his] own terms".
"It's always about doing pop on my own terms. I would get bored if I made the same record over and over again," he explained.
"For me it's important to do cool s**t and just be proud of what I do. I love learning and employing different sounds and different kinds of music."
Diplo also promised not to slow down his career any time soon, telling the website that he has many projects in the works.
"There's a lot of stuff going on as far as pop and rap, but I'm not at liberty to talk about it. I'm always looking for someone that's different - someone that is progressive and that's pushing things forward," he added.
"They have to have some level of marketability so that's our job as the label to navigate our artists into the mainstream. So far we've been pretty successful at that."
