Jack U’s Diplo picks up a view-house in Beachwood Canyon for $2.4 million


Grammy-winning disc jockey, producer and songwriter Thomas Pentz, known by his stage name Diplo, has bought a Hollywood Hills house for $2.425 million.

The four-story contemporary in the Beachwood Canyon area makes the most of its site, with walls of glass and outdoor terraces taking in city, canyon and ocean views. A top-floor master suite and adjoining balcony center on the Hollywood Sign and ocean.

The 2,500 square feet of white-walled interiors include a first-floor studio and two additional master suites on the second level. Open-plan living and dining rooms and a modern kitchen fill the third floor.


A courtyard with a succulent wall and a cedar hot tub extends off the second level. There’s also a two-car garage.

The house was listed for sale at $2.449 million or for lease at $12,500 a month, records show. It previously changed hands five years ago for $560,000.

Imraan Ali of Keller Williams Larchmont was the listing agent. Farrah Aldjufrie of The Agency repped the buyer.

Diplo, 37, and his collaborative partner Skrillex won a pair of Grammy Awards this year for their dance/electronic album “Jack U” and the single “Where Are U Now,” which featured Justin Bieber. He co-founded electronic music group Major Lazer in 2008.
