Major Lazer is an electronic music group created by record producer Diplo, with current members Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Also, Boaz van de Beatz and Jr. Blender often contribute to the groups projects, even though they are not official members. Initially the English DJ and producer Switch was part of the group, but the two parted ways in late 2011. Their music spans numerous genres, usually fusing reggae and dancehall music with dance genres such as electro house. Major Lazer has had quite a year thus far, from linking up with DJ Snake and MO for “Lean On”, which continues to be one of the biggest hits of the year so far, to claiming the number 1 spot on the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart with Peace is the Mission.
Major Lazer has switched spots with Jamie XX’s In Colour, to take the rightful place with their latest hit. Walshy Fire, Jillionaire, and Diplo have announced that a follow up record is due later this year, which could also claim the top spot on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Album in the future. On top of everything that is going on for Major Lazer, they just released an official remix from Vanic of the opening track from the album, “Be Together”, which gives an overall unique sound to the track. Be sure to listen to the remix below as well as Major Lazer’s Peace is the Mission. Stay tuned for the future endeavors that Major Lazer has in store for their fans!
Want a proper bedroom DJ booth but not wanting to pay the pretty penny? DJ Puzzle has a solution: build your dream booth with parts from IKEA. Inspired by a guide from DJ Tech Tools circa 2011, DJ Puzzle has created an in-depth guide to constructing a DJ booth via ready-to-assemble furniture. The setup centers around a Kallax Bookshelf, which, aside from providing a stable foundation for one’s gear, also affords ample storage space for things like equipment or records. The total cost comes out to about $200, and, as detailed in the video, is not as daunting to assemble as one might think. Many DJs spend much of their time at home, in the studio or the in bedroom creating their sets. In the process, DJs have spent a great deal of money on the latest and greatest DJ gear. Luckily DJ Puzzle has assembled a way for you to receive the benefit of an awesome home audio desk without spending a hefty amount. IKEA also has other products that are useful such as some multi-color LED strips for some additional lighting in the darkness. If you’re the least bit serious about mastering your mixing skills, then take the time to check out the video below for creating your own audio desk!
