Starting off at a very young age of just 15, Don Pepijn Schipper today has made a name for himself and has established himself as one of the best DJ's and producers the world over and is today known by his stage name "Don Diablo". Since starting at 15 when he signed his first record deal and by the end of 2005 founded his own record label and event brand "Sellout Sessions". Even though he's come a long way since starting out he still hasn't forgotten to give back to those in need, Diablo was the first ambassador for Dance4Life that is an international UN-supported action campaign created to fight back against HIV and AIDS and has also gone on to travel to South Africa to visit several Dance4Life projects of which MTV Networks even shot a documentary of Don's visit to these projects but that not all, in July of 2014 Don partnered with our favourite EDM lifestyle brand Electric Family to produce a collaboration bracelet for which 100% of the proceeds are donated to Fuck Cancer.



And as for his music well, In 2010 he collaborated with Dragonette on the track "Animale" that went on to chart on theDutch Singles Chart along with theBelgian Ultratip chart. He later released "Starlight (Could You Be Mine)" with Matt Nash that was played at the last Swedish House Mafia concert that went on to become a Beatport Top 5 hit which was kind of a goodluck charm to say for him as many of his other releases climbed to the Beatport Top 10 spot. SInce starting out he has also gone on to produce for artists such as Diplo and Example to name a few and has had a residency at Las Vegas' night club "Light" besides which as also released tracks on Axwell and Steve Angello's labels. Fast forward to numerous chart topping singles later, he just gave his fans a huge Christmas surprise yesterday as he released his hughly anticipated album which we cannot stop listeing and which we're sure to have on repeat on our way to Goa.
