Major Lazer with Dirty Projectors + the Roots on Fallon

major lazer fallon

Not long ago, the phrase "Major Lazer TV performance" might have raised some eyebrows (we're not sure about how well most of the American public would have embraced daggering) but since the Diplo project's arty dub-funk turn with last year's killer single "Get Free," it seems a little more reasonable. Diplo and company, including Dirty Projectors' Amber Coffman and Dave Longstreth and the Roots, brought the track to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. As usual, Coffman's voice is in fine form, and she, Longstreth, and the Roots help give the performance a dynamic vibe. After many postponements, Major Lazer'sFree the Universe is finally out April 16 - check this out in the meantime.
