Ever since I first laid ears on Major Lazer way back at SXSW in March, I knew it was destined to be Diplo's break-out on his own type of record. Then he went and established a mascot to keep him in Switch somewhat in the shadows again. The wizards behind the curtain. Either way -- read this interview with Major Lazer himself over at the Agit-Reader to get a bit more insight to the project. Party record of the Summer. Soon as I have a party.
And perhaps the best video of the year, the Eric Wareheim directed clip for "Pon De Floor."
