The world’s biggest Moombahton act is coming to a great close. In an interview with Complex magazine, Major Lazer frontman; Diplo explained that the trio’s next album (due for release next year) will be their last. The news comes on the eve of a tour throughout Africa, kicking off on September 29 in Johannesburg, ending in Uganda on October 8.
Diplo explains the role it played in Major Lazer’s eventual disbandment: “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. 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.”
