When Major Lazer came to public attention, I understood it was an eletronic band using the culture of Jamaica and Reggae. For Me, it was one of the first times I had encountered it or at least to me it was one of the biggest most recent projects about Reggae.
Well, ok, it was Diplo and Mad Decent, they probably will influence a lot of people. But it didn’t happen overnight for them. They released 2 albums, and I felt that they just continued creating Reggae music with eletronica.
But, then I stumbled upon these 2 tracks that made me think again.
Is this evidence of a new movement developing within Reggae?
