Diplo Set To Host Questlove’s VH1 Live Music Show, ‘Soundclash’

http://variety.com/2014/tv/news/questlove-soundclash-vh1-palladia-1201176555/With executive production from The Roots drummer, Questlove, Diplo has officially been announced as the host of Soundclash.

Since summer is right around the corner, you can expect a lot of new music, festivals, and yes, new television shows. But since MTV doesn’t really produce any “music” television shows, Palladia & VH1 are sort of filling the gap with Soundclash.

Let’s just say, if you take three music acts, give them a stage, some new tracks, covers, and throw in some collaborations, then you end up with Questlove’s forthcoming VH1 show, Soundclash. 

According to Mixmag, the show will air on July 23rd and will feature Lil Wayne, London Grammar, and Fall Out Boy.  Interesting lineup, right? But it’s not just selected a random, their is reasoning behind this eclectic grouping of artists. 

“SoundClash will showcase established acts at their peak, spotlight breaking artists on the rise, and introduce what’s breaking on the music scene at that moment,” says VH1 President, Tom Calderone.
