Friday night saw the return of Diplo - the DJ name of Thomas Wesley Printz - to Ybor's Czar Bar. Friday nights are better known as Pulp the Party, an electro hip-hop party hosted by the Orlando based DJ Pauly Crush. It's a quite the scene, though not your typical Ybor douche bag nightclub. The Czar Bar has some style and every 30 minutes or so, it's open bar. When you hear a horn and see the yellow sirens going off above the bar it's drink on them.
Diplo - who spent time at UCF and had the unfortunate duty of dating M.I.A. for awhile - took the stage just after 1 AM. His 2+ hour set had the packed dancefloor in a non-stop, booty-shaking throw down. Only a few cuts from Top Ranking , his 2008 release that prominently featured Santigold, were played. Highlights from the night were a remix of the Beastie Boys' "So Watcha Want", a teasing of the melody from Santigold's killer track "Creator" and a remix of M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes."
