RFT Music writer Evan C. Jones had the following to say about each of the acts:
Lead by DJ/producer/tastemaker Diplo, Major Lazer is a collective of artists who, simply put, throw an outrageous show. Beyonce sought the group out and sampled their 2009 hit "Pon de Floor" for her single "Run the World (Girls)." Their newest album Free the Universe is scheduled for an April 15 release.
Lunice Fermine Pierre II, known worldwide by his first name, is blazing his way toward the top of the electronic music scene. His first two EPs, 2010's Stacker Upper and 2011's One Hunned, garnered attention for the young Montreal native; 2012's collaboration with friend and fellow LuckyMe labelmate Hudson Mohawke, known as TNGHT, catapulted Lunice directly into the worldwide electronic music heavy hitters.
