Diplo's Revolution

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Diplo's Revolution is a global-centric electronic dance music satellite channel operated by Sirius XM Radio, broadcasting on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 52,[1] XM Satellite Radio channel 52[2] and Dish Network channel 6052.

The channel was formerly known as Electric Area (2008–2018) and before that Area (2002–2008 via Sirius) and its XM Radio counterpart The Move (2001–2008). The channel is being programmed by musician/producer/DJ/remixer Diplo and named after his 2013 song "Revolution." The channel made its debut at 9pm (EDT) on March 22, 2018.[3]

Station history

As "Area"/"Electric Area"

The station was available on Sirius, and at first was called Area 63 due to the channel's position. Later, it was renamed Area 33, again due to the channel's then-new position. Area features some of the world's most renowned DJs such as Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin, Carl Cox, Erik Morillo, Paul Van Dyk, Benny Benassi, Armand Van Helden, Roger Sanchez, Ferry Corsten, Thomas Gold, Serge Devant, Deep Dish, Annie Mac, Sasha and John Digweed. On June 24, 2008, Area 33 was moved to channel 38 to make room for the move of SIRIUS Disorder (occupying the position is now The Bridge). On November 12, 2008, Area dropped its "38" position on the logo because of the Sirius-XM merger, and replaced The Move on the XM channel lineup. Most recently, Mediabase delisted the S038-FM channel's playlist, along with co-owned Pop2K; Mediabase would read the station to its Dance panel in January 2014.

On September 12, 2010, the channel was renamed Electric Area to expand its exclusive dance music format.

As "Diplo's Revolution"

On March 22, 2018 Electric Area was replaced with "Diplo's Revolution". It was announced at the launch that the channel would feature "global, hip-hop, experimental and underground dance culture"[4] aside from the current dance/electronica direction, as well as live sets and live festival broadcasts. The transition also resulted in sister channel BPM incorporating most of the content into its playlist.

Despite success after a year on the airwaves, Diplo's Revolution has not been able to sway loyal followers of the Electric Area format it has fully replaced. The Electric Area listeners also cite Diplo's Revolution as a far cry from the pop EDM/Dance that was played on electric area, and describe Diplo's underground style of tribal jungle drum beats as "hard to follow" and feature strange rap lyrics mixed in. Diplo's Revolution features artists such as Dillon Francis and Phantoms, and maintains episodes of trance producer Armin Van Buuren's long running popular trance program A State of Trance.

As of 2020, Diplo’s Revolution has begun to follow a more Top 40-like approach similar to sister channel BPM, as reflected in its playlists as reported in Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay and Mediabase’s Dance charts.


Former Programming


As Electric Area, it was carried on DirecTV until February 9, 2010. On May 5, 2011, it was moved to channel 52[8] for both services and Dish Network 6052.
