Diplo confirms duo are halfway through guest-laden album
The duo, Diplo and Switch, are currently working on an LP in Jamaica and say the record will contain a mix of guest appearances from reggae and indie musicians.
“I’d like to have it done by the end of the year and get it out for 2011,” he explained. “It’s a pretty random selection – top-form dancehall guests; Vybz Kartel, Bugle, Timberlee. Also, Vampire Weekend, Lykke Li and Santigold.”
He added: “Then we have some classic fellas like Lee Perry and Junior Murvin. It’s like reggae is the vehicle, but we really live in this Major Lazer post-apocalypse world where all these artists don’t seem strange together.”
Major Lazor recently played in Beijing concluding the Creators Project‘s series of global gigs.
