You'll find a cornucopia of tasty tunes to bounce off your eardrums. I update with new tunes, art and photography every week, depending on what I'm doing and listening to at the time, old and new. I'm based in London UK but I love to travel and discovery new music along the way and share my musical journey on neoloop.

Snoop Dogg has been renamed Snoop Lion for his debut reggae album. This is first tune to materialise today from forthcoming LP Reincarnation. La La La produced by Major Lazer and features guest vocals by Jovi Rockwell. Snoop and Diplo borrow heavily from old school rock steady tune Artie Bella, from Ken Boothe and Stranger Cole’s circa 1960′s version. Last heard on Major Lazer's Lazerproof the mash-up of La Roux's debut LP. Snoop's no Ken booth, but with Diplo's dancehall posse Major Lazer behind him it's defo a winner.
A Major Force
Major Lazer played Live at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire this week, it was a mental gig, Toddla T got the crowd nicely warmed-up with a few special guest including the delightful Shola Ama who stole the set. You might need somebody, Taboo and Take it back all sounding good with Toddla's beats. Major Lazor take the stage and dancehall mayhem erupts for the next hour and half. Hold the Line was a special moment, Diplo mixed up the unique Major Lazer sound with classic reggae and calypso, the highlight for me was Harry Belafonte's Day-O mashed with the epic Pon de Floor, the whole of the empire went absolutely mental.
Also out this week is a new tune from Major Lazers forthcoming album due in 2 months time. Given away as a free download in exchange for your email here. Get Free features the lush vocals of Amber Coffman of the Dirty Projectors and sounds amazing, I've been playing it on repeat for the last few days. LOVE IT!
Look out for Major Lazer's forthcoming Dancehall album with Snoop Dogg too!
