Hi-Res
Back for a fourth round of island-blasted fun, Diplo, Walshy Fire, and new member Ape Drums deliver the tightest and most accessible offering from the Major Lazer project with the excellent Music Is the Weapon. Unsurprisingly, this set is designed to get bodies moving and it never lags in that regard. As with past Lazer efforts, Music is a star-studded affair that crosses borders and genres with an inspired cast of contributors from the worlds of pop, rap, R&B, dancehall, reggaeton, Bollywood, and Afro-beat. Traversing the globe, Major Lazer recruits North American singers Alessia Cara and Khalid, who soften their respective tracks with smooth vocals, providing comforting breaks from all the hip-shaking, which makes up the bulk of the album. Meanwhile, British folkster Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons makes a surprisingly appropriate appearance on the uplifting anthem "Lay Your Head on Me," which became the breakout radio crossover hit of the album. Indian singer/songwriter Rashmeet Kaur injects South Asian flair to the addictive "Jadi Buti," which hits just as hard as DJ Snake's own Bollywood-bass fusion anthem "Magenta Riddim." Later, rappers French Montana and Nicki Minaj drop verses on two standout tracks: first, Montana joins BEAM on the DJ Snake-esque thumper "Bam Bam," then Minaj pops up on all-star melee "Oh My Gawd," which shakes the floor with Nigerian artists Mr Eazi and K4mo. Busy Signal, Skip Marley, and J Balvin also service pulse-pounding moments that put the body in a trance, building the set to a dizzying frenzy on the Grammy-nominated "Rave de Favela" with MC Lan, BEAM, and Brazilian pop diva Anitta. At a compact 12 tracks, Music Is the Weapon provides just enough inspiration to get the party started, but it is so good that -- if left on repeat -- it would be enough to fuel an entire night of hedonism. © Neil Z. Yeung /TiVo

Launched as an electro-dancehall act fronted by a fictional Jamaican comic book character who comes from outer space, no one should have expected that Diplo's Major Lazer project could grow and expand artistically. Still, this third album surprises with its weight and, more than anything, subtlety as three of the best numbers are ballads. Best of these slow burners is the big hit "Lean On," where vocalist MØ and guest producer DJ Snake help deliver the sentimental lyrics and sensual house music at an intoxicating half-speed tempo. The cooled opener "Be Together" with Wild Belle feels like Macy Gray stole one of Sia's better songs and it somehow ended up here, and then there's the closing "All My Love" with Ariana Grande and Machel Montano, which raises the temperature a bit, but the Hunger Games: Mockingjay soundtrack cut appears here in a beat-dropping remix that could sneak onto any Jennifer Lopez album it chooses. Diplo should also get some kind of collaborative genius award for pairing Ellie Goulding with reggae's current cool ruler Tarrus Riley on the uplifting and aptly titled "Powerful." This chilled quadrilogy is surrounded by the usual bass, beats, and bonkers attitude, like the mighty "Roll the Bass," which offers EDM, moombahton, and trap in one herky-jerky package. Reggae tracks "Too Original" with Elliphant and Jovi Rockwell plus "Blaze Up the Fire" with Chronixx help pull the album back toward Major Lazer's original concept, and if nine tracks seems a little too short, these are all tracks that are worth revisiting. Consider it the slow and softer Major Lazer album that's built for headphone listening, but most of all, consider it. © David Jeffries /TiVo

Booklet
Das 2009 erschienene Guns Don’t Kill People ... Lazers Do war noch ein Gemeinschaftsprojekt der DJs Diplo und Switch, aber für die kreative Leitung der 2013 erschienenen Platte Free the Universe zeichnet nun Diplo alleine verantwortlich. Den Stil des höchst eklektischen Albums zu beschreiben gestaltet sich als fast unmöglich, umfasst es doch diverse Fusionen verschiedener Stile wie Dancehall, Elektro, Reggae und Hip Hop. Die Gastmusiker illustrieren dieses Phänomen: Unter anderem sind auf dem Album Rapper Wycleaf Jean, Sänger Shaggy, Elektro-Musikerin Peaches und Ezra Koenig von der Indierock-Band Vampire Weekend zu hören. In die deutschen Charts ist Major Lazer mit Free the Universe auf Platz 88 eingestiegen. © TiVo

"Never seen a world more ready to pop into a world war / Even puppets need a marine corps", erkannten vor nicht allzu langer Zeit die Puppetmastaz. Jetzt rüstet die Comic-Szene nach, und Jamaika bekommt endlich den ersten eigenen Superhelden. Major Lazer, Veteran aus den geheimen Zombie-Kriegen von 1984, beschützt nicht nur den Planeten vor Vampiren, agilen Mumien und anderem Gezücht, sondern auch Dancehall vor der Verkalkung. Dabei baut der Cartoon-Soldat auf großkalibrige Schützenhilfe. Hinter der Zeichentrick-Fassade ziehen Philadelphias Baile Funk-Pionier Diplo sowie der britische Produzent, DJ und Labelbetreiber Switch die Fäden. Wobei ziehen eine um Welten zu zahme Formulierung für den akustischen Overkill darstellt, den Major Lazers Laserprothese unters gezwungenermaßen tanzwillige Volk ballert. Zerren, zupfen und obendrein noch ordentlich verdrillen trifft es besser. Dancehall, mit mindestens ebenso mächtiger Absorptionsfähigkeit ausgestattet wie der große Bruder Hip Hop und vergleichbar reich an Zitaten, in eine neue, zuvor nie (oder doch wenigstens selten) gehörte Richtung zu dirigieren: ein mittelgroßes Kunststück. Ohne auf arg strapazierte Sirenen und Gewehrsalven zu verzichten, verwursten Diplo und Switch zusätzlich allerlei Absurditäten. Surfgitarren ertönten zwar bereits im bezeichnenderweise "Wipe Out" betitelten Riddim, über dem unter anderem Mavado seine "Gun Battle" ausfocht. Gekreuzt mit einem Telefon, einem Pferd und den Stimmen von Santigold und einem finsteren Mr. Lexx erreichen sie in "Hold The Line" die nächste Dimension. Traditionelle Reggae-Sounds wirken wie in Watte gepackt ("Can't Stop Now"), selbst ollen Claps und noch ollerem Autotune-Gedudel ringen die Herren Produzenten ein frisches Erscheinungsbild ab. Dabei haben sie immer einen unerwarteten Dreh, stets ein abstruses Detail mehr in der Hinterhand. Ein Baby hörte ich bisher jedenfalls noch nie durch den Effektwolf greinen. "When You Hear The Bassline", dann blubbert, tickt, pumpt und drückt es aufs Trommelfell. Diplo und Switch gehen ähnlich hemmungslos und brutal zu Werke wie The Bug, bewahren sich mit dem steten Blick auf den Dancefloor jedoch deutlich mehr Sozialverträglichkeit. Mit Ausnahme des drögen "Keep It Goin' Louder", dessen schnurgeraden, stinklangweiligen Beat auch der knarrende Bass nicht mehr rettet: keinerlei musikalischen Ausfälle zu verzeichnen. Statt dessen beschert Major Lazer allerlei verblüffende Crossover-Erkenntnisse. Wer hätte gedacht, dass "mix up the salsa with the reggae" ein Ragga-Techno-Hybrid wie "Jump Up" gebiert? Oder wie mühelos "What You Like" zwischen "Sexual Healing"- und "Das Boot"-Assoziationen pendeln lässt? Die Gäste am Mikrofon leisten sämtlich Schwerstarbeit, untermauern inhaltlich jedoch eine Aussage Diplos. Der erklärte kürzlich in einem Interview, in der Arbeit mit Dancehall-Vokalisten gestalte sich eine Themenauswahl eher übersichtlich. Nachdem homophobe Ausfälle als unerwünscht deklariert wurden, verbleiben - das Album dokumentiert das umfassend - die Topics Gewalt, Weed, Hetero-Sex und das gute alte Burn Down Babylon, das letztlich auch wieder irgendwie unter Gewalt und Weed abgelegt werden darf: Wenig Neues also im Staate Jamaica. Na, und? Ein überschnappender Turbulence verspricht zwischen bombastischen Kulissen und Computerspielsounds: "Anything Goes". Einstein protzt vor Amanda Blank mit seiner überirdischen Potenz ("What U Like"). Mr. Evil und Mapei legen in "Mary Jane" samt einer gefühlten Blaskapelle auf Drogen den Eindruck nahe, dass Kiffen doch irgendwie am Verstand nagt. Das macht doch alles viel zu viel Laune, als dass man ernsthaft inhaltliche Mängel beanstanden möchte. © Laut

Continuing to tease fans leading up to the release of their fourth full-length, Music Is the Weapon, EDM supergroup Major Lazer released the six-song Know No Better EP at the beginning of June in 2017. Typical of Major Lazer's genre-blending style and their mission to bring the world closer together by making the party bigger, the songs combine elements of dancehall reggae, house, trap, reggaeton, pop, and R&B. The title track features rappers Travis Scott and Quavo as well as pop singer Camila Cabello, and "Buscando Huellas" includes appearances from Colombian star J Balvin and dancehall veteran Sean Paul. The EP's energetic high point is the boisterous "Jump" (with Busy Signal), and the relatively cooled-off (but still entrancing) "Sua Cara" follows, adding some Brazilian flavor courtesy of guests Anitta and Pabllo Vittar. Jidenna, Machel Montano, and Konshens are among the additional names invited to the party. The guest list is extensive by most standards, but Major Lazer still manage to make it seem casual and effortless. Short and solid, the EP does exactly what fans expect, and it's all the better for it. © Paul Simpson /TiVo
