Major Lazer - ITM-FM exclusive mix

On Saturday 24 November, the Stereosonic juggernaut will fire into life for its biggest tour yet. One of the drawcards on the expansive 2012 line-up is Major Lazer, the crew headed by one-man dance music powerhouse Diplo. To get us primed for the festival, Major Lazer is taking over the inthemix ship for a few days with some exclusive goodies. The first to drop: this 30-minute mix from the group’s Jillionaire.

Soon, Major Lazer will unleash a new album Free The Universe. There have been some changes in the ranks, with UK studio whiz Switch moving on and the group’s hype-man/daggering specialist Skerrit Bwoy apparently breaking away to pursue religion. For Free The Universe, Diplo remains “the sole executive producer”, gathering a cast of guests that includes Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Bruno Mars, Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Wynter Gordon and Flux Pavilion.

The live show’s where it all gets wild, though. On the road, long-time member of the dancehall soundsystem Black Chiney Walshy Fire has taken up the MC role. Then there’s DJ-producer Jillionaire – who began his career as part of Trinidad’s reggae soundsystem, Radioactive Nuclear – joining Diplo at the controls. Hit play on this mix to start the party, and stay tuned for more from Major Lazer.
