Diplo, one of the group members, was born on 10 November 1978 in Tupelo, Mississippi, the United States, to Barbara Jean Cox (mother) and Thomas Pentz (father). He is a record producer, songwriter, DJ, and musician.

Walshy Fire is a celebrated Jamaican disc jockey born on 25 November 1982 in Orlando, Florida, United States. On the other hand, Ape Drums is a gifted American DJ born on the 28th of June 1990 in Houston, Texas, United States.

Their former member, Switch, is a versatile English DJ, songwriter, sound engineer, and record producer who was born in London, United Kingdom.

The group also added renowned Trinidadian DJ and music producer, Jillionaire, who was born on 3 April 1978, in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.


Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire make up Major Lazer‘s electronic music group from the United States. After they both collaborated with M.I.A., Diplo and Switch met and decided to form the group. They combine reggae with dancehall, reggaeton, house, and moombahton in their music, which crosses several genres. 

In June 2009, the duo’s debut album, Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do was made available through Downtown Records. The album, which was produced at Jamaica’s Tuff Gong Studios and included extra productions from Afrojack and Crookers, featured guest vocals from several well-known artists, including Santigold, Vybz Kartel, Ward 21, Busy Signal, Nina Sky, Amanda Blank, and Mr. Vegas

According to Diplo, Switch finally quit the group in late 2011 owing to creative differences, and Jillionaire and Walshy Fire were brought in to fill his position. They had a very active year in 2012. Along with working with Rita Ora on her debut album Ora and No Doubt on their Push and Shove, they were also preparing a new album, which would eventually be named Free the Universe, and a Fall Tour. 

Major Lazer announced that their album Free the Universe would be released in April of that year after signing with independent record label Secretly Canadian. They conducted a spring tour in promotion of it. 

In 2015, the group returned with a new Peace Is the Mission album.

The song’s top position on the Billboard Hot 100 was No. 4, despite Rihanna and Nicki Minaj initially being offered and rejecting it. Additionally, it rose to become the eighth most watched video on YouTube with more than 1.5 billion views, becoming the most listened to song of all time on Spotify. 

2016 saw Major Lazer preview their upcoming album, Cold Water, featuring Justin Bieber, which has since been confirmed to be titled Music Is the Weapon. Before joining Jack U, his other band with Skrillex, Diplo collaborated with the Canadian beauty. 

Chart performance for Cold Water was even better. The single, which was released in late July, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
