Diplo, flanked by Trinidadian partner-in-crime Jillionaire and Black Chiney’s Walshy Fire, taps his Caribbean contacts list to bring the Major Lazer melting pot to a boil on new EP Apocalypse Soon. The genre-blending sound system has rustled up five dagger-happy tracks that will make you want to wile out at a dancehall nowhere near you. In terms of buzz-factor collaborators, Apocalypse Soon snags omnipresent lucky charm Pharrell (who’s no slouch on the sixteen bars of the popping "Aerosol Can".) And for those who like their chicken jerked and their wine dutty, collaborations with Sean Paul, RDX, Mr Fox and soca legend Machel Montano bring the island flavour home.
