Major Lazer is on a mission to unite the planet through music — a force that few can argue with. Borrowing beats from all around the world, each song this group produces sounds like a global greatest hits album! Take the 2015 smash hit “Lean On” for example:
When asked in this interview what genre of music best describes their sound, Major Lazer responded,
“We wouldn’t call it anything… It’s just fusion… The mission is knocking down all genres, blurring everything and as long as it sounds good that’s all the matters!”
So far, the mission has been an overwhelming success. Major Lazer has topped global charts and is headlining concerts on 6 continents.
Pro DJs, such as Dez of Groove On Entertainment can’t get enough of their music,
“I spin for very diverse crowds. I need tunes that bring people together and Major Lazer does just that! Whether your roots are from Africa, Europe, North or South America, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean — you’ll hear something in their music that moves you.”
Major Lazer is working on a new album, set to be released in late 2017 / early 2018. For fans across the map, let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later!
