Major Lazer on tour in Brussels

For those who like a little bounce, eclectic drums and beats in a range from 50 to 150 bpm Major Lazer is probably no stranger. Diplo and Dj Switch, the original team behind the imaginary Jamaican bountykiller, made their debut in 2009 with 'Guns don't kill people...lazers do". A unique mix of dancehall, reggea, hip-hop and fidget house.

Now 3 years later, Diplo and Jillionaire came down to Brussels to show us some major musical magic. In no time the duo and their dancers got the Botanique in their pocket, taking everybody on a journey filled with fat beats, laser sounds and a gazillion samples.

In the hood of Dom Pérignon

"Dom Pierre Pérignon, O.S.B., (c. 1638–1715) was a French Benedictine monk who made important contributions to the production and quality of Champagne wine in an era when the region's wines were predominantly still and red. Popular myths frequently, but erroneously, credit him with the invention of sparkling Champagne, which didn't become the dominant style of Champagne until mid-19th century.
The famous champagne Dom Pérignon, the préstige cuvée of Moët & Chandon, is named after him." - Wikipedia
