In 2011 Switch left and was replaced by the DJ/Producer Jillionaire and Walshy Fire and the trio released “Free The Universe” in April of 2013 featuring many guest vocals from various artists again such as Bruno Mars. They signed up to work with Pharrell Williams and Sean Paul as part of their EP project “Apocalypse Now.” They are known for their unique blend of electronic dance and reggae undertones and they are without doubt one of the most fun acts performing live and always whip the crowd into a frenzy of suitable excitement with ease. Every show is complete with crazy effects, twerkin dancers, and crowd surfing so if you like having a great time dancing, and getting “turnt up” then come out and see this show!
