We previously heard a radio leak but now we get to hear the full version. Let the vibes take you away to that summer state of mind. Enjoy!

Here is what Diplo had to say about making the video.
"India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer. Major Lazer has always been a culture mashup and to us, India feels like some kind of special creature with one foot in history and one firmly in the future. The experience is something we’ll never forget. “

One of Diplo's biggest songs to come since "Express Yourself" has to be "Revolution" which features Faustix, Imanos and Kai and saw quite an assortment of remixes.
A couple of months back, Diplo decided to release the stems to this song, motivating aspring LA producer Unlike Pluto to step up to the plate. Unlike Pluto now delivers an exceptional chilled out trap styled remix featuring some fresh harder hitting drums, chopped up vocals, and a fantastic new synth melody. Listen to the premiere of the remix below and don't miss out on a an exclusive free download. Enjoy

When Diplo isn’t surrounded by a wall of twerking girls, he is the front man of Major Lazer; an ongoing side project that continues to cement itself in the music world by blending electronic and reggae sounds like no one before.
Taking the Major Lazer persona to the next level, the group is being represented by cartoon characters; Major Lazer "himself" being a gun-bearing militarized Jamaican. We’ve seen him and other characters throughout album and single artworks, and we even saw him brought to life in their music video for “Get Free”.
Now, Diplo’s been cooking up something far bigger, a full-on cartoon TV show based around Major Lazer personas. If the show is anything like the music, it surely has promise. Set to broadcast on FXX, the new Fox spin-off network geared toward a more mature audience, (home to programs like Archer, Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League), this pick up demonstrates how far the channel is willing to push boundaries.
Today we have the first sample of the show with the actual intro. The very first episode will air on FXX this Sunday night at 12 am EST.
Dillon Francis continues to gift the world with tracks as the clock draws closer to one of the biggest dance music releases of 2014, Dillon's debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule!

"We Make It Bounce" flexes both producers talents in all the right ways as a well crafted electro house beat is treated to various reggae aesthetics and vocals from Stylo G. A stream of the track will have to do for now, but this only adds more hype to Dillon's album which is available October 28th! Enjoy
