Attention: Diplo Likes Calle 13

A few months back we told you we'd be keeping track of what international subgenre or non-mainstream artist noted music fan Diplo is getting into, in the name of staying informed ourselves. Today, via a blog post recounting a recent trip to Cuba, we have our first update: Diplo is into reggaeton superstars Calle 13, whom he commends for "represent[ing] a pro-independence rebel attitude in their native Puerto Rico" and "workin against the grain with hi concept records for 5 years." The Times recently did a piece on Calle 13's crossover efforts, although they may have to update it to include Diplo's co-sign. [MadDecent]
