In the New York Times’ review of Major Lazer at S.O.B’s, writer Jon Caramanica mentions a number of Modiba’s friends, including D.J./rupture and Jahdan Blakkamoore.  Of Jahdan’s single song guest spot at the show, he says, “Jah Dan was controlled and entrancing on ‘Cash Flow,’ one of the token roots reggae songs on the Major Lazer album, and one of its best.”   We’re not sure Mr. Caramanica is fully on-board with the Diplo and Switch side project that is Major Lazer…. but he sure loved our boys!!  Full text is here. And to check out the rest of the Major Lazer project, which we love, check it out here and be sure to cop Jahdan’s ‘Cash Flow’ on iTunes!
