Were you at Diplo-tent? Jillionaire, Walshy Fire and of course Wesley “Diplo” Pentz–collectively known as Major Lazer–were there. And in between thunderstorms, explicit dancehall cabaret and one of the craziest dance parties we’ve ever attended (trust. we’ve attended a few dance parties) the trio sat down with LargeUp and the Okayplayer crew to talk about everything from Diplo’s Philly roots to the influence of Machel Montano and carnival culture on Major Lazer’s live attack (and we do mean attack). Warning: this video should be considered NSFW if you do not feel safe licking shots and/or going ‘pon your headtop at work.
