Few dance artists have had a year as big as Diplo’s. Over the last 12 months, he has produced tracks for Madonna’s new album, Rebel Heart, and co-produced some of 2015’s biggest radio staples in Major Lazer’s “Lean On” collaboration with DJ Snake and MØ, and as one-half of Jack Ü in “Where Are Ü Now” featuring Justin Bieber.

Away from his own studio grind, Diplo’s played the role of tastemaker at the helm of his weekly BBC Radio 1 show Diplo and Friends. “It was a great year for music in general,” the DJ says in the introduction to the latest Diplo and Friends episode, and he’s recapping 2015 in the best way he knows how: with a mix.

The Mad Decent boss goes two hours deep into his favorite records of the year, which include the aforementioned hits (though he might be biased), as well as other huge dance singles including Calvin Harris & Disciples’ “How Deep Is Your Love,” Disclosure’s “Bang That,” Galantis’ “Runaway (U&I),” and Valentino Khan’s “Deep Down Low.” Harking back to his rap roots, there’s also hip-hop from Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Drake, Fetty Wap, Ty Dolla $ign, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Kanye West. Closing out the mix, appropriately, is the just-released MK remix of Diplo’s latest single with Sleepy Tom, “Be Right There.”
