Major Lazer is rocking on the scene for almost a decade now but they decided to stop what they stated. In an interview with Complex, Diplo revealed, “Next year marks our last album, so we got a lot of stuff in between now and then.”
Swedish House Mafia will return to the scene while another trio trying to left the scene. His other side projects Silk City and LSD also taking off. And he’s also got a stellar solo career with residencies in many Las Vegas nightclubs, so it makes sense. LSD has put out three songs since May, and Silk City has done four, including collaborations with Dua Lipa and GoldLink & Desiigner.
“Music is so fast nowadays. It’s like we’re in a hip-hop cycle all the time; a new rapper comes out and careers last like two years these days,” Diplo laments. “Everything is so rushed, so we’re just so lucky we can get things out on the radio these days. I think this project has enough energy around it that we’re able to keep being relevant, that’s the essence of being great DJs. We all love music, so we don’t have to get stuck in a certain style.”
We’ve all been enjoying their music. It’s new, it’s fresh. They saw a different dimension of music and a lot of tracks were chart killers.
Major Lazer just dropped their Afro Beats Mixtape featuring bunch of new music they gonna release. So they have some dope releases before the end of next year.
