Major Lazer is Summertime Music
You ever get so big that you get bored with your life of being rich and famous and decide to start a massive cross-genre project centered around a fictitious Jamaican military man with a lazer for a right hand? If so, your name is Diplo. Great to meet you, Diplo.
Starting with “Hold the Line,” the 2009 release that earned Major Lazer an MTV music video nomination, the group has experienced nothing but success. Major Lazer has released three full-length albums, working with such names as Pusha T, Ariana Grande, and Ellie Goulding. Rumor has it, another Major Lazer album will come in 2016.
The group prides itself on blending musical styles, from Reggae to Dancehall to Moombahton, and it’s fun. Typically featuring Jamaican vocals, the music is built for warm weather climates. So listen to “Jessica,” “Lean On” or “All My Love,” go outside, and Instagram the world with a cross-process filter.
