The new Major Lazer LP just got pushed into 2013, so you have to wait a bit to hear what happens when Vampire Weekend, Wyclef Jean and Shaggy all end up on the same album. But the real-life Major Lazer experience—bass, Bass, BASS, B-A-S-S, if you haven’t heard, or if you’re wondering what keeps making the streetlights shake—trucks on with a grip of strategic single releases (including one for Snoop Lion!) and a stop at the Observatory. Locals, please direct yourself to the very recent remix of No Doubt’s “Settle Down,” which becomes some kind of comic-book-dance-party monster under the control of Diplo. And then direct yourself to the actual show, where statistical history suggests that 10,000 ecstatic people will all reach some sort of psycho-rhythmic soul communion. Sounds nice!
