Upon joining Major Lazer, Walshy Fire has lent both his MC’ing and DJ’ing abilities to the versatile project. Teaming up with reggae adept Chronixx, the two have released “Start a Fyah Mixtape” under the official Major Lazer heading. The mixtape is strictly dancehall/reggae, with Chronixx providing continuous verbal output. While we gave a glimpse into Jamaica’s dancehall phenomenon with Diplo‘s Kingston diaries, “Start a Fyah Mixtape” is further education into the flourishing dancehall culture. The mellow, dub-driven mix is available for free download below.

Electric Zoo has plans to increase its safety measures at this year’s festival. In 2013, two drug-related deaths led to the cancelation of the festival’s third day and brought with it serious public scrutiny of New York’s premier dance music festival. This year’s permit is also being deliberated due to concerns regarding the two-deaths in its five year history, and, as of writing, has still not been issued. Mike Binder and Laura DePalma are confident and told the Wall Street Journal that issuance usually “happens later in the year.”
