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! His newest single is a collaboration with label head Diplo's legendary dancehall group Major Lazer that is sure to get you moving from start to finish. "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

ETC!ETC! will not stop releasing unstoppable trap remixes now hitting us with his bootleg remix of the Major Lazer remix of Jack Beats “Knock You Down”. We get left with a smooth trap remix with some reggae flavor. This reminds me of his recent trap bootleg of Lana Del Rey “Summertime Sadness”. It follows the simple yet effective pattern giving the track just the right spin. He has been nice enough to let us pass out the download for this one. Turn this up, enjoy!

Must Watch Major Lazer’s “Bubble Butt (feat. Bruno Mars, 2 Chainz, Tyga & Mystic) Music Video Directed by Eric Wareheim of “Tim and Eric”Posted in Bangin, Video by nick | Tags: Major Lazer, Music Video
Diplo and the Major Lazer crew recruited Eric Wareheim from the hilarious off beat Adult Swim show Tim & Eric to direct the official music video for “Bubble Butt” featuring Bruno Mars, 2 Chainz, Tyga and Mystic. He matches the outrageous song with an even more outrageous video filled with huge butts getting injected into ‘bubble butts’. It basically is a 5 minute Tim & Eric episode sketch. Sit back and be blown away.
