Skrillex and Diplo Debuted a Ton of New Jack U Music At Ultra

There’s something to be said of the “importance” of sets at a festival like Ultra Music Festival. With more of the top talent available to choose from than one might know what to do with, it may be easy for some gems to get lost in the sauce. Looking at the lineup, the name Jack U might not be the first to jump out at you but their set from Ultra was an hour long auditory onslaught that had the crowd on a whole other level. Sprinkled in was new music from Skrillex’s new album Recess like his track Strangers which we featured on this past week’s episode of ThatNewJamFM and the new 3LAU and Botnek collaboration Vikings.

Skrillex & Diplo – Live @ Ultra Music Festival 2014

The combination of Skrillex & Diplo doing a set together is mindblowing in and of itself but these two are in the studio together as well and they chose their set this weekend to debut a bunch of new material including collaborations with Fatman Scoop, new Major Lazer IDs, Jack U IDs and somewhere in there was the HAAASAVENYAAA thing from The Lion King. If nothing else, this set was an hour of damn god music from two of the most talented producers you can find mixed to damn near perfection.

Major Lazer- Apocalypse Soon [Album Stream]

The domination of everything Diplo is continuing, be it his Major Lazer squad, the Mad Decent label or his own personal productions. With their latest project Apocalypse Soon out now and available for streaming, we can safely say this is certified rowdy and just sexy enough to make sure females are moving. They just released the video for’Lose Yourself’, the collaboration with Columbia’s very own Moska and the duo of RDX. With some expectedly sexy Lazerettes handling the dancing and even some goats to join the party, this is a certified banger.

Major Lazer – Watch Out For This (Bumaye) (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Tomorrowland Remix)

Major Lazer - Watch Out For This (Bumaye) (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Tomorrowland Remix)

No one quite defines the mainstage festival vibe better than Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. After Tomorrowland propelled the two Belgians into the stratosphere of festival DJs with their legendary sets at the festival, they’ve been riding the wave and the top of Beatport with their high energy tracks. Major Lazer is the perfect jumping off point for these to make this one a full out banger.

Already riding high after the huge success of their two back-to-back Beatport #1 tracks (‘Turn It Up’/’Mammoth’) and the monster that was the Swedish House Mafia favourite ‘Wakanda’, the duo dive straight back into their love of African-inspired beats and vocals. Keeping the sun-soaked bump’n’grind of Lazer’s original cut, Dimitri and Mike still give proceedings their trademark main room sound, delivering an epic edit that is sure to feature heavily across this year’s international festival circuit.

Macklemore Ryan Lewis vs Major Lazer – Can’t Hold Us ft. Swappi and 1st Klase (Power Soca Mix)

Macklemore Ryan Lewis vs Major Lazer - Can't Hold Us ft. Swappi and 1st Klase (Power Soca Mix)

Not sure what the occassion was that warranted the free giveaway of this Macklemore & Ryan Lewis track from Major Lazer but I’m certainly not complaining. The dancehalled out sounds of Major Lazer fit perfectly with the upbeat nature of the original…not that you should be surprised considering everything Diplo touches turns to gold.

Snoop Lion – Reincarnated (Full Album Stream)

Snoop Lion - Reincarnated

In promotion of its release tomorrow, we have an official stream of Snoop Lion’s reggae infused album Reincarnated. We’ve already given you his collaborations with Drake with No Guns Allowed and with Miley Cyrus for Ashtrays and Heartbreaks but this album is great beyond the big names. With Diplo and the rest Major Lazer handling executive production, this is a truly reinspired Snoop Dogg expanding his artistry.

Major Lazer – Bubble Butt ft. Bruno Mars, Mystic & Tyga

Major Lazer - Bubble Butt ft. Bruno Mars, Mystic & Tyga

As a taste of what’s to come from Major Lazer’s upcoming album Free The Universe out this Tuesday 4/16, they released this track with features from Bruno Mars, Mystic & Tyga. The song is every bit the strip club joint that you’d expect from Tyga and if this is any prediction of the rest of the album, I’m real excited!

Major Lazer – Get Free ft. Amber of Dirty Projectors (Live On Jimmy Fallon)

As Diplo continues on his path of world domination, he made some time to stop by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with the rest of Major Lazer, Amber of Dirty Projectors and members of The Roots to do a rare live version of the song Get Free. Definitely a highlight video for me…check the post for the remix version with a verse from J. Cole right here!
