He’s Major: Terry Crews Stars in Major Lazer’s “Scare Me” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

terry-crews-is-major-lazer-in-scare-me

One of the more overlooked aspects of the Major Lazer conversation is the Diplo-led crew’s ability to pull together some really unlikely pairings and collaborations. “Scare Me” is not one of our favorite tracks from their recent Free the Universe album, but it gets a forward from us simply for bringing together dirty-talk queens Peaches (of “Fuck the Pain Away” fame) and LargeUp favorite and former Badda Badda Gal, Timberlee. The pairing makes too much sense, but who else could pull it off (or even think of it)?

CONTEST: Walshy Fire Wants Your Senegalese Dancehall Rhythms

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Major-Lazer-Miss-Lilys-Walshy-Fire

You might take our friend Walshy Fire for a party-all-the-time kinda guy but the Major Lazer frontman, sound killer and occasional LargeUp contributor likes nothing more than to unwind and challenge his mind with some PBS. We know FOR A FACT his favorite TV show is Que Pasa, USA. (Hola, Miami.) So we know he was gassed when PBS’ online series Beat Making Lab tapped him to play judge and jury for its latest contest, encouraging folks to make a dancehall riddim from a sample of a kora, a traditional, 21-string harp from West Africa commonly used in Senegalese music.
