Inna Dubstep Style: Major Lazer Meets Johnny Osbourne on “Jah No Partial”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Major Lazer Jah No Partial

Amidst hyping their upcoming Free the Universe single, Major Lazer has revealed that the tune features vocals from none other than our friend, “Dancehall Godfather” and one of Jamaican music’s most historically consistent artists, Johnny Osbourne. In a promotional clip for “Jah No Partial,” (which was co-produced by dubstep beatmaker Flux Pavilion) Diplo explains that the vocals come from an acapella of Mr. Osbourne’s 1981 tune “Mr. Marshall,” given to him by King Jammy. Watch the video below for insights into the genesis and concept of the track from Diplo and Major Lazer (and LargeUp) crew members Walshy Fire and Jillionaire, hear what we can only presume is an unfinished leak of the tune here, and look out for “Jah No Partial” on iTunes Oct. 22.

Amidst all the rappity rap and R&B madness at this summer’s Roots Picnic, the electro-dancehall carnival known as Major Lazer turned what would come to be dubbed “Diplo-tent” into a rain-soaked rave of legend. Major Lazer being family (yuh dun no Jillionaire and Walshy Fire are LargeUp contributors), we linked with our Afro-wearing overlords at Okayplayer for a behind-the-scenes peek inside the madness that is Major Lazer, covering everything from Diplo’s Philly roots to the influence of Machel Montano and carnival culture on the crew’s live attack. Watch the webisode below, head over to Okayplayer for more highlights from this year’s momentous (and two-day long) edition of the Roots picnic, and be sure to check our LargeUp TV episode with Diplo in Jamaica for more Philly-JA connectivity.
