By mixing elements of 80s nostalgia with mainstream hip-hop, crunk, dancehall, bhangra, Baltimore club and now even the Favela Funk of Rio Di Janeiro, Brazil, Diplo shines a light on genres and artists that are reshaping our conceptions of music and culture

Ho ho! Bhangra, Baile Funk, Dancehall and - well, assuming it's just the continuation of Deep South hip-hop like Three-6 Mafia etc - Crunk. Sounds good to me. Though a bit of Reggaethon wouldn't go amiss.
