Major Lazer Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do
I know Diplo is supposed to one of the best producers and one of the most talented artists in the electro/dub/hip-hop scene, but I just don’t feel his work. It’s not that his music is really that bad, it just doesn’t seem that spectacular to me.
On his most recent release under the name Major Lazer, Diplo and collaborator Swith ventures into the dancehall realm and again, he fails to impress. There really isn’t anything to get excited about here. Basically the music is just his normal production fused with dancehall rhythms. The vocalist fail to impress as well, week dancehall styles, even weaker raps and vocoder enhanced pop vocals. To me, the only people who will get excited about this release are club hopping hipsters rocking fluorescent shirts.
