He's a Grammy nominated Producer, a DJ and Club Promoter. He even owns his own record label and thats only one half of new project, Major Lazer... and his name.. Diplo.
Once you have reached that level of success, what else is left, other than team up with fellow DJ/Producer 'Switch' to create one of the years best debut albums.
When I found out that these two have been involved with such acts as Santogold, M.I.A and Bonde Do Role then I wasn't surprised that one of the tracks off of the new ML release "Gunz Don't Kill People, Lazers Do" has a crying baby with 'built in auto-tune' which they sampled to create a minute long freestyle track... Amazing !!!
Major Lazer's debut album has it all... Laid back reggae in 'Can't Stop Now' and 'Cash Flow'... 'Keep It Goin Louder' and the Crookers co-produced 'Jump Up' and are the pop offerings, but above all else, this is a dancehall release.. and a great one at that.
