Major Lazer uploaded their latest 17-minute set, “Lazer Strikes Back Vol. 2“, on soundcloud last night.
Major Lazer used to be a collaboration between Diplo and DJ/producer Switch, but they split up in 2011. Now, DJs/producers Walshy Fire and Jillionaire stand side by side with Diplo. If you’re not familiar with the Major Lazer sound, consider it reggae with heavy bass underneath and a higher dose of “rump shaking”. Some of their songs have featured vocals from artists such as Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal, Nina Sky, Mr. Vegas, and T.O.K.
If you don’t know, now you know.
