While Philly DJ-producer Dilpo and his record label, Mad Decent have been an instrumental part of the ever-growing Electro House/Dubstep scene(s) since roughly, 2003... Most people really don't even realize how familiar they are with Diplo's discography: "Paper Planes," Kid Cudi, "Run The World (Girls)," Usher, Die Antwoord, Wale,
Diplo is currently hoed up in Kingston, Jamaica earnestly working on the proper follow-up to Major Lazer's well-received Indie Rock breakthrough, Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do (2009). The untitled album is rumored to feature appearances from a mix of friends-musicians: Vampire Weekend, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Sean Paul, Bruno Mars, Lykke Li, No Doubt, and Vybz Kartel. Yeah, a release date has yet to be announced, but I'd expect to see it @ some point during 2012-13. Major Lazer suddenly unveiled a BRAND NEW track late Sunday night, "Get Free." Although it showcases Amber Coffman (Dirty Projectors) on lead vocals, she is noticeably absent from "Get Free"'s companion [animated] music video that was released Monday morning. Pick up a digital copy for the price of a quick email addre$$ and while you're @ it, grab Major Lazer's OTHER semi-recent 2012 release: Original Don EP.
