Diplo Confirms The End of Major Lazer


One of the most well-known electronic acts will call it an end will be hanging up their microphones next year. After spending more than 10 years spreading dance hall music to all corners of the globe, Major Lazer will finish.

In an interview with Complex, Diplo revealed, “Next year marks our last album, so we got a lot of stuff in between now and then.”

His other side projects Silk City and LSD also taking off. And he’s also got a stellar solo career with residencies in many Las Vegas nightclubs, so it makes sense. LSD has put out three songs since May, and Silk City has done four, including collaborations with Dua Lipa and GoldLink & Desiigner.

To say that Diplo is busy is an understatement.

“Music is so fast nowadays. It’s like we’re in a hip-hop cycle all the time; a new rapper comes out and careers last like two years these days,” Diplo laments. “Everything is so rushed, so we’re just so lucky we can get things out on the radio these days. I think this project has enough energy around it that we’re able to keep being relevant, that’s the essence of being great DJs. We all love music, so we don’t have to get stuck in a certain style.”
