In 2005, Diplo founded the record label Mad Decent in Philadelphia, and it helped introduce genres like Angolan Kuduro and Brazilian Baile Funk. More recently they have explored genres like Moombahton, which is a genre of EDM created by DJ Dave Nada. This label is most popular for it’s Mad Decent Block Party, which are a series of concerts worldwide.

Mad Decent shifted from Philadelphia to Los Angeles in 2010 and the next year it launched Jeffrees, an imprint label for “an outlet to curate and promote new music that errs on the side of experimental, in keeping with the label’s original mission.”

The label garnered more attention in the following years, with the worldwide phenomenon that was Baauer’s super hit single Harlem Shake. It went absolutely viral on YouTube and had a lot of covers, mashups, and spoofs made.

Starting from 2008, Mad Decent has created worldwide Mad Decent Block Party tours, which was initially just in the United States. This major event keeps in theme with the original concept that the label has of showcasing and spreading global dance and pop music. The artists that perform at the events have now surpassed the Mad Decent roster and include big names like Outkast.
