Major Lazer Take Kingston is the latest release from Rolling Stone Films and follows dancehall-inflected party-music kingpins Major Lazer—manned by super producer Diplo, Walshy Fire, and Jillionaire—on a trip back to dancehall’s homeland, Jamaica. There, the trio discusses how they got into the genre, pays a visit to legendary producer King Jammy in his studio, and headlines their own completely bananas festival.

The ten-minute documentary is streaming below. 

Major Lazer released a new track this week with DJ Snake, “Lean On,” featuring MØ; their full album is expected in April.
