Words by Jesse Serwer—
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.
