Kevin Bacon at the Turntables?

Musicians can be an incestuous lot, and that goes double for the DJ set. So I shouldn't be surprised to find less than six degrees of separation joining many of this year's late-night performers at the Red Marquee.

More after the jump.

While looking up some music to download from eMusic, I saw a pattern emerging amongst many of the DJs. At the center of this web? Diplo. Both Anglophone and Francophone representatives from our team have already given him a duly-deserved shout-out, but it's worth mentioning that the native Floridian has collaborated with at least four of this year's club acts: London's Fake Blood (performing together in the UK as I write), Lisbon's Buraka Som Sistema and two Italian duos - Crookers and Bloody Beetroots.

A few recommended EPs to prep you for the Red Marquee:
