Jillionaire: Sway in The Morning Mix
And the Major Lazer juggernaut rolls on. An integral part of Mad Decent's electro-dancehall monster, Jillionaire helps bring the group's self-conscious swagger (his facebook page lists his musical style as "Black Metal / Japanese Classical Music / Tropical") with a helping of authentic soca bump and a serious record collection. That double vibe of hipster cool and unreconstructed party madness is fully on display in this  recent mix, which moves fluently between mile deep trap,  road fresh dancehall, and reworkings of Major Lazer tunes. It's a great sound, and it serves as a welcome reminder that Diplo doesn't do it alone. Give it a listen here! [soundcloud url="" iframe="true" /]
