But Major Lazer is more than just Diplo. This moniker represents a collective of individuals willing to push boundaries to their limits and then some to create aurally pleasing beats that upon first listen, the listener can identify instantaneously the material is from the Major Lazer camp.
Starring MØ’s magical vocals and a collaboration of heavyweights, Major Lazer and DJ Snake have produced an exquisite visual compliment to their track ‘Lean On’. Shot in India during their tour last year, the music video is full of hypnotic dance moves and culturally wooing shots of the storied country. Diplo had this to say about their experience.
“India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer. Major Lazer has always been a culture mashup and to us, India feels like some kind of special creature with one foot in history and one firmly in the future. The experience is something we’ll never forget.”
