Feel da Riddim in da Club
Nobody blends modern dance and club thumping with traditional and island sounds like Major Lazer.
Apocalypse Soon is a five track EP releases in 2014 by Major Lazer, the trio led by Diplo, with help from Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Our favorite track Sound Bang is below in the video section.
"Apocalypse Soon is too fast and mean to be bogged down by any comic book extras, and besides, the music is weird enough and wild enough on its own." - AllMusic
The EP features a different star on each track: Pharrell Williams, Sean Paul, and some lesser known rising stars, Machel Montano from Trinidad, RDX, Moska, and Mr. Fox.
When an act features the level of execution that Major Lazer showcases on Apocalypse Soon...
...it makes the likely forthcoming full synergy of dance, Rap and pop not so much regrettable, but palatable and completely welcomed. - HipHopDX
