Though he and Switch may have parted ways, Diplo
still continues to push strong with his dancehall-infused project Major Lazer
, now with the help of Jillionaire
and Walshy Fire
. On “Jah No Partial”, the Major Lazer crew adds UK bass boss Flux Pavilion
into the mix, resulting in a full-sounding fusion of reggae and dubstep.
The original sample comes from “Mr. Marshall” by Johnny Osbourne, one of the original dancehall legends from the 1970s. As a feature single from their upcoming album, set to be released February 21, Major Lazer pays a nice tribute to pioneer while punching up production for the modern day dancefloor.
