Trevor and Mariam & Ruby Skye Present WORLD TOWN with Diplo and Benzi on Thursday August 4th of 2011. This video compiles the essence of the party on an amazing sold out night at San Francisco's cutting edge monthly party World Town. World Town resident Trevor Simpson opened up the night, monthly resident DJ Benzi rocked it out, and Diplo destroyed the crowd with an amazing genre-bending set of House, Moombahton, Dubstep, electro and dancehall.

A note about World Town and Diplo...

A few years ago amongst a stale and repetitive San Francisco nightclub scene, an idea was born. This idea was to bring the fun back to a night out on the town, encompassing great music with out stigma or bounties, multicultural experiences that embrace all ages, and entertainment that breaks though the norm in unprecedented venues. This idea was born out of an inspiration that came from a climate change in music, politics, and global information sharing. Diplo and M.I.A. separately and collectively fueled much of that inspiration. From Diplo's mix tape "Piracy Funds Terrorism" to his production of the Balie Funk inspired Bucky Done Gun or the mega smash hit Paper Planes, these two taste makers unknowingly wrote the architecture that became the World Town Constitution and mission statement. As World Town grew from a small gathering of friends to the biggest monthly party in the Bay Area, Diplo grew from a world cult open format DJ and producer to one of the most in demand talents in the World. His collaboration with Switch to form the Major Lazer Sound System dancehall collaborative was one again a left field curve ball that pushed forward the global sound of underground music. As World Town turned 2, the music was brought to a halt as 1500+ citizens watched the amazing student made short film based on M.I.A.'s "World Town" and "XR2" which was produced by Diplo. As Tiesto made a guest afterhours appearance at World Town, Diplo and Tiesto released "C'mon." As Crookers played at World Town for Halloween, they also put the finishing touches on their Major Lazer tracks. During all three Hyper Crush performances at World Town events, we all screamed AYO, the Diplo produced track that is a fan favorite. As Chuckie made his SF debut with a super special surprise guest appearance by Lil Jon, Diplo and Lil Jon released "You Don't Like me." As Afrojack played one of the most amazing shows in SF history, the Diplo and Afrojack produced song "Look at Me Now" dominated US top 40 radio. We have been working on this event for over three years, but even in his absence Diplo has been at every World Town event in spirit and in music. In the tradition of our August parties, (last year we featured Far East Movement, Dev, The Cataracs, and Hyper Crush in one amazing night at Ruby Skye) we are now SO proud to bring Diplo, the inspiration for the World Town brand of events, live to Ruby Skye for the 18 and over August 4th. It was important to all of us, including Diplo, that we kept this event as adorable as possible, so tickets start out at just $20 and will not go up past $30. Needless to say, this event will sell out, so get your tickets quickly to secure your spot at World Town, "hands up, guns out, represent that World Town"
