Major Lazer Biography

Major Lazer is an electronic music project created by American DJ and record producer Diplo. Formerly a collaboration along with English DJ/producer Switch, they parted ways in late 2011. Diplo has since enlisted producers/DJs Jillionaire and Walshy Fire (of Black Chiney) to help with the production and live shows. Their music spans numerous genres, usually fusing reggae and dancehall music with dance genres such as moombahton and electro house. They have released two full length albums - Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do and Free the Universe, released in 2009 and 2013 respectively. They released an EP entitled Apocalypse Soon in March 2014, which featured vocal contributions from Pharrell Williams and Sean Paul. Major Lazer also produced Reincarnated, the debut reggae album by Snoop Dogg after his name change to Snoop Lion.
