I made Florida between a small apartment in Philadelphia and my mothers house in Florida. I was working late nights and taking a bus through the city every night, smoking weed, putting on headphones and just making things I never heard before and could just imagine. Making this record created an entirely new world for me. Now that I think back its a very strange beginning and its crazy its been 10 years since its first release, but really, this record represents my first 23 years of life - what I had inside of me and where I came from so Im excited to revisit it.” - Diplo

The reissued Florida includes the stunning 'Epistomology Suite, released around the time of the original album plus 5 unreleased tracks/versions recorded by Wes during the Florida album sessions - all packaged in high quality print with artwork based on the original design for the Florida album and an iconic photo of Wes. The 3LP vinyl comes with a 1.5m pull out scroll of brilliant and surreal emails between Diplo and Big Dada from back in the day- an insight into how the Florida album came to be.

In some ways, ‘Florida’ represents Diplo’s most personal work, with less thought for the dancefloor than for atmosphere (not least because it was mainly mixed on headphones, with no money for monitors or smart studios). To understand Wes Pentz, where he comes from and where he’s going, you have to go all the way back home—back to Florida. - BigDada.com
