MAJOR LAZER are one of the giants of electronic music worldwide. It all started in 2008, when producers DIPLO and SWITCH started working together. The two met for having worked on the first album of singer M.I.A. and then also with Santigold.
Their first album came out in 2009. “Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do” already had some of the band’s most distinctive elements, such as catchy electronics and reggae always on the prowl. The second album, “Free The Universe”, released in 2013, continued on this successful track and included the participation of some dance music stars such as Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal, Mr. Vegas, Nina Sky, Amanda Black, among others. The single “Hold the Line” exploded worldwide, making it a hit on any dance floor. In 2012 they joined Snoop Dogg and edited the theme song “La La La” – the collaboration also extended to the production of the album “Reincarnated” by Snoop Lion, the persona of Snoop Dogg.
At that time there was a change in the project: Switch left and Jillionaire and Walshy Fire joined (Jillionaire leaved the project this year 2019, giving way to Ape Drums). In 2015 they released their third album: “Peace Is The Mission”. A few months later they would have to talk about the launch of another successful planet-wide theme: “Cold Water”, featuring Justin Bieber and MØ. And successes like this were coming naturally, one after the other, as well as collaborations with stars like Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande.
In the meantime, it is still waiting for “Lazerism”, Major Lazer’s fourth album. “Make It Hot” with Anitta and “Que Calor” with J Balvin and El Alfa are two of the well-known themes and also two of the most anticipated themes by the public at MEO Sudoeste on August 6th.
