This year has been a whirlwind for EDM sensation Major Lazer. The No. 1 hit of the summer with millions of radio stations worldwide was surely “Lean On,” and the group has just announced that they will be joining a few of their famous friends on Dr. Dre’s new XM station Beats 1. Beats 1 is a 24/7 network that plays music to over 100 countries through Apple’s iTunes Radio.

‘Lazer Sound’ will be a new station on Dr. Dre’s Beats 1 radio that will play the newest and funkiest electronic tunes. The members of the group include Diplo, Jillionaire, Eric Hamilton, and Walshy Fire. Lazer Sound hits the airwaves October 2, and the Major Lazer squad will answer interview questions, debut some new tunes, and talk about their “Global Attitude.”

Diplo commented on Lazer Sound by saying, “If you’ve heard any of our live sets, you can expect anything under the sun.”
