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.
Everyone’s favorite renegade, zombie fighting, lazer-toting Jamaican commando is back with a brand new mix. Major Lazer’s latest mix contains an impressive sixty two tracks in just seventy one minutes. The mix is exactly what you would expect from Diplo’s long term side project and contains a whole host of absolutely fantastic feel-good reggae/dancehall tracks. While Diplo might have dropped Switch from the Major Lazer project, he seems to have found more than adequate replacements in Walshy Fire and Jillionaire. Check out the mix below and then click after the break for the (very long) tracklist.
