2013 release from this musical project spearheaded by DJ/producer Diplo, who has risen through the ranks and asserted himself as one of the most pioneering producers of the time. Through unending curiosity and exploration of the vast multitudes of the world's musical heritages, Diplo has managed to seamlessly connect the global underground to the audio mainstream.

The production's by far the strongest link on Free the Universe. Maybe it's not as up-front and audacious as it was on the all-stops overload of Guns Don't Kill People. But it's to-the-point and danceable when it's inclined to aim that way, and most of it's bound to sound commanding through massive stacks of amps. Percussion clatters through on jam-packed snare-clap-kick-hat drum patterns even before the ankle-breaking bass kicks in, while trilling digital chords inevitably steer towards all-caps siren blares. Not all of it's so energetic and frenetic; the foggy, calliope-and-guitar rocksteady underpinnings of "Get Free" and the sweet Studio One haze of "Jessica" calm the proceedings without killing momentum. A few moments feel like gratuitous, instantly-dated trend-grabs, like when the trance-jungle feints of Flux Pavilion collaboration "Jah No Partial" displaces the mood with pro forma arenastep..

"Wind Up", "Watch Out for This", and "Mashup the Dance" deliver the goods when the likes of Elephant Man, Busy Signal or Ward 21 put in their work and keep the energy levels up.
