Major Lazer

Diplo and Switch certainly live the life, hugly succesfull DJs/producers in their own right, last year they joined forces and headed to Jamiaca to explore their Rasta roots. Diplo being a skinny white kid from Philly and Switch being a baldy, beardy ginge from Birmingham the locals were a bit dubious about their Dancehall credentials but the pair prooved their worth in the studio and recorded with artists like Elephant Man, Gyptian and T.O.K
Major Lazer is the result and it is well tasty! Check out a couple of the tracks on the recent Mad Decent Podcast here and on the over on the myspace. The had their debut peformance at last months Notting Hill Carnival where Santogold dropped by for an imprmtu PA and by all reports Toddla T tore the place apart (pics here). Keep an eye for news on the EP at Mad Decent.
