Earlier this year, Diplo and photographer/co-conspirator Shane McCauley shared exploits from their global travels in a coffee table book for the Urban Outfitters set. For those looking for a lighter reading experience, they’re now releasing a series of travel zines. Each issue of the 96-page limited-edition zine, called Blow Your Head, will showcase the culture and music of a different country.
For the first edition, Diplo and McCauley traveled to Jamaica to explore the roots of reggae, dancehall and new, evolving genres. They roamed Trenchtown, the legendary recording studios Tuff Gong and Geejam and Sugar Man Beach, to name a few locations.
The first edition of Blow Your Head launches October 1st, with an official launch taking place October 10th at FAMILY in Los Angeles with McCauley and Diplo. Check out the trailer, featuring a banger from dancehall artist Popcaan that will get you moving and ready for the weekend, below.
