    Big Summertime BBQ Choons ....

    "Major Lazer is a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984. The US military rescued him and repurposed experimental lazers as prosthetic limbs. Since then Major Lazer has been a hired renegade soldier for a rogue government operating in secrecy underneath the watch of M5 and the CIA." Press release WIN. Under the Major Lazer umbrella, Switch and Diplo have concocted a Jamaican dancehall-inspired party album featuring vocal cameos from friends like Amanda Blank and Santigold. First single "Hold The Line" features a machine gun surf riff and toasting from Mr. Lexx and Ms. White. On the ID3 genre field, it said "Raggamuffingangsterkrunkdubstepsurfrock," so file under that. Diplo and Switch produced "Paper Planes" so don't be surprised to hear ringing phones and cash registers along with neighs. Did I mention Major Lazer "fights vampires and various monsters" and has a rocket powered skateboard? Basic concept album stuff.

    The world is likely not ready for the arrival of Diplo & Switch’s musical machination Major Lazer; a renegade commando with a lazer arm and a rocket-powered skateboard who fights the spoils of Vampires, Zombies, Pimps, Mummies and other unsavory forces of evil. The first album in years of original material by these two highly regarded producers, the music is Diplo & Switch’s interpretation and homage to the songs and sounds they have discovered through the years.. The identity of Major Lazer was created by the two producers as a conduit to express their affinity for Jamaican music. The album references dancehall, ska, reggae, dub, calypso, and soca music recontextualized via Diplo and Switch’s club friendly background.

    “It’s like digital reggae and dancehall from Mars in the future, pop culture run through a Jamaican filter!” exclaims Diplo.

    On June 16th, Downtown Records will release GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE…LAZERS DO, the debut LP from Major Lazer, executive produced by Grammy-nominated masterminds Diplo & Switch. The album features performances from premiere Jamaican vocalists Vybz Cartel, Ward 21, Fambo, and Busy Signal, to name a few and embodies a soundtrack of a hard, technological future world that Major Lazer is fighting to protect. Diplo & Switch, known legends for their dance floor commando tactics, recorded the album at Tuff Gong and other studios in Jamaica.

    Reggae or some smooth chillout Hip Hop.

    Motown is always good too.

    Get hold of some theo parrish mixes. Always good for the summer, that and some lighter dubstep.

    Failing those two I recommend putting on pretty much any album by A Tribe Called Quest

    HMMMMMM....Jurassic 5. I remember going to their gig with The Roots in Melbourne. I wandered outside by myself. I walked down to the beach. I talked to a possum. I was in love with that possum......I found my way back inside. That was a great gig.

    Already got the Trojan X, class stuff, and good to know the rude stuff been going on longterm. Ain't just recent generations getting dirty.

    Check Diplo 'Decent Work For Decent Pay Volume 1' if you ain't already, also Annie Mac had Diplo on her show for interview and mashup set and talking thru Major Lazer. Worth a listen.
