Major Lazer @ Miami’s Ultra Music Festival 2013

I had been waiting for my chance to photograph some big balls. I had assumed my opportunity would come whenever I photograph The Flaming Lips, but to my surprise I got to photograph Diplo’s big big balls! I’ve been a fan of Major Lazer for awhile. Why? 1. The music makes you feel good. 2. Diplo is F.I.N.E. The marriage of dance music with reggae is genius. The track “Original Don” is perfection. Even the darkest goth can’t help but to wiggle to this song. Major Lazer has a new album out 4/15, so until then check out my photos from Ultra!

Major Lazer was created out of respect for the Jamaican dancehall reggae music. Their Facebook bio says it best:

Fronted by a cartoon zombie-slaying Jamaican soldier the Major Lazer experience is beyond surreal. It’s a freaky sideshow brought to you by two of the scene’s biggest and brightest talents who bend genres onto themselves with seamless ease, swarming pop culture with an outlandish outpouring of mayhem that spans from absurd live shows to chart-smacking bangers with breakthrough performances worldwide. From festivals to clubs to legendary Carnival parties, Major Lazer is making it’s mark like a red-hot branding on the face of modern music. Sure it stings but oh it feels so good.

Having collaborated on M.I.A.’s surprise hit “Paper Planes” and Santigold’s debut album, Diplo and Switch birthed Major Lazer from a shared appreciation for the Jamaican dancehall genre and spirit of the sound system. From there the two traveled to the music’s motherland, holed up in the legendary Tuff Gong studio and enlisted the help of a who’s-who list of Jamaican vocalists to produce an authentically twisted mashup of styles and influences. And so became such club staples as “Pon de Floor,” “Hold the Line,” and “Keep It Going Louder,” not to mention an onslaught of madcap remixes, videos and oh just a minor cultural phenomenon to lead the way.

Since, it’s been total world domination. A nonstop touring schedule, which included this year’s Coachella, Pitchfork and HARD Summer festivals as well as a frenzy of shows across the globe from London to Kuala Lampur. A recent collaboration with British electro-pop outfit La Roux on the Lazerproof mixtape and the upcoming Lazers Never Die EP–featuring the handy work of M.I.A., Collie Buddz, and Thom Yorke, among others–are set to make 2010 the year Major Lazer establishes its reign, dominating clubs with swift daggering dance moves into each stop’s, errr, gut.

Meanwhile, Diplo and Switch will return to Tuff Gong to resume work in the studio and record the next Major Lazer album as the world waits with anxious anticipation.
