We wonder how Diplo gets the energy to literally always be up to something new. It has just been announced that both he, via his Major Lazer project, and Swedish producer Eric Prydz will have new shows on Apple Music's Beats 1 radio station starting in October.

Major Lazer's show will be called "Lazer Sound" and is set to feature Walshy Fire, Gillionaire, producer Eric Hamilton, and more. Speaking with Zane Lowe for the occasion of the announcement, Diplo gave listeners an idea what to look forward to: "If you've heard any of our live sets, you can expect everything under the sun." It will debut on Friday, October 2 at 6 PM EST.
