Diplo Does Jamaica for ‘Blow Your Head’ Zine

The man behind Major Lazer launches his own zine with Jamaican music as the subject.

Whether you call him a musical anthropologist or a cultural tourist, there’s no denying Diplo’s ear for emerging sounds around the world. With the first volume of his Blow Your Head Zine the Major Lazer DJ and producer links up with photographer Shane Macauley to document Jamaican dancehall reggae culture. In this volume Macauley and Diplo hit Trenchtown landmarks like Sugarman Beach, Bob Marley’s Tuff Gong Studios and Gee Jam Studios to capture candid shots of the music, dance, and people.

The 96-page black and white softcover limited edition book will be available for purchase on Oct.1 in stores but you can secure your copy now at Picturebox.

An official launch event for the zine is taking place in L.A. at FAMILY(436 N. Fairfax Ave.) on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.
