DESPITE chaotic traffic, fans who turned out on Friday at the Mas Camp to see deejay Skrillex and electronic dance team Major Lazer, got their money's worth.

After lively selections from DJ Kamal Bankay, Mario C and Chromatic Disco, Skrillex (Sonny Johnny Moore) took the stage to deafening screams.

He started with a rock instrumental before going into a string of dancehall and reggae beats, including Make it Bun

Dem, his big hit with Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley.

After Skrillex's energetic performance, it was time for Major Lazer who split their time at the turntables and raised the bar even higher.

Accompanied by two female dancers, the trio (Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire) delivered a number of popular selections, but their set was not just about music.

They threw what appeared to be piles of cash into the audience. Some patrons tussled for the notes but soon realised that

the 'currency' was merely promotional items.

Major Lazer later invited dancehall duo RDX on stage to perform their new collaboration, Lose Themselves, which was well received. They also debuted Sound Bang, a song with soca star Machel Montano.

It was close to 2:00 am Sunday when Major Lazer exited, leaving their fans totally satisfied.
