No Comments

On Friday December 20th 2013, Jamaica will once again play host to one of the most electrifying performing acts to ever grace its shores. Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire, also known as Reggae/Dancehall/EDM super-group MAJOR LAZER are set to light up the Christmas season with their second live performance this year on the island.

Coming off a hugely successful year which began with a sold-out concert at UWI Mona Campus in January, the event saw dancehall sounds Chromatic and DJ/producer Mario C play opening sets as well as featuring guest cameos from Popcaan and reggae's new golden boy Chronixx. For the main event, Diplo and his MAJOR LAZER crew laid down an unforgettable experience in sight and sound -- dancers, confetti, crowd surfing and human sized hamster balls included. The unforgettable, sold out performance had patrons drooling for another installment.

This time around "The New Mas Camp" will play host to Major Lazer and the performers are committed to deliver a performance bigger and better than their last. Major Lazer frontman, Diplo stated, "Every time we come to the island whether to vibe and record our music in studio or to perform live we get the greatest showing of love from the industry, the people and the media. This time around we are going to raise the bar to the sky again and give back some of the love Jamaica shows to MAJOR LAZER. Our UWI show was absolutely insane and is one of our best shows we have done anywhere in the world to this day."

The Emcee for MAJOR LAZER, Walshy Fire, who started his career with Black Chiney, is a born and bred Jamaican with the vision of taking reggae and dancehall music to the world and back. Walsh too is seriously excited to be able to do this once again telling us, "When we came here in January and saw the love that the people had for what we are doing, it meant the world to us. We infuse elements of Jamaican and Caribbean music into our productions and remixes so it's the most important thing to get the love at home 'inna our backyaad'. We are going to deliver something special with even more surprises and crazy performances to change the game once again. Jamaica can expect more of our crazy energy but just turned waaaaaay up".

Dream Entertainment Director and MAJOR LAZER LIVE Event Curator Kamal Bankay who himself has been a fan of the MAJOR LAZER movement from the early days said, "I'm truly honoured to be given the opportunity to work with these guys and produce a show of this magnitude. As a true fan of Jamaican music and Electronic Dance Music, my dream is to fuse both cultures into the greatest 'onepot' of entertainment. My dream is to bring the international performers to Jamaica to deliver unique shows as well as eventually creating an experience on the island that patronsfrom all over the Caribbean and the world will fly to our island for. Delivering truly unique experiences like this helps Jamaica as a country to grow our global footprint in the popular mainstream music industry. Movements like this put our local artists in places, on stages that are reserved for the biggest and best pop music stars. We intend to deliver to you the most amazing production elements you would have seen in Jamaica and then some..."
