Domain of the Diplo 

Hello. Fate (or Google) has brought you to my virtual door. Welcome, nice to see you.

In case you hadn't realised, this is the homepage of Dan 'Diplo' Booth. Why are you here? I don't know. Perhaps you are curious and want to know more about me? Or maybe you are interested in listening to some of my music? Could it be you are the voyeuristic type and like looking at pictures of strangers on the internet? Is it simply that you wish to get in touch and then slip back into anonymity? Or perhaps you are interested in reading my blog, which covers many aspects of technology and web development.

Please feel free to wander around my site. If you exhibit feelings of disorientation or find yourself lost amongst the words then I'd recommend checking out the sitemap. In the event of panic then quickly press the logo at the top left to bring yourself back to this charming location. Take care.
