As you may have read in our Major Lazer feature from earlier today, Diplo is one seriously hard worker, and he’s got a discography miles long. We picked out a few choice cuts from that long list to get you started.

Upon its release last June, Diplo’s “Express Yourself” became an instant sensation everywhere. Check the awesome New Orleans-shot twerk video.


Free the Universe‘s sexy, swaying opener sends a loud and clear message. Dancehall chat, lilting R&B vocals—no genre is safe from Major Lazer’s attack.


Dubstep wunderkind Flux Pavilion takes this second single from Free the Universe on a bassy ride. Be sure to check out Skream’s drummy remix, too.


“Get Free” is a perfect example of what Major Lazer does best, mixing various musical styles into a seductive sonic collage. Dirty Projector chanteuse Amber Coffman’s siren song is sure to enchant with charm and grace.

“Hold the Line”’s chugging riff blends nicely with Mr. Lexx’s silky dancehall vibes and Santigold’s rhythmic punctuation, but the winner here just may be the accompanying video.
