Not sure if this can be considered an official video – there’s a lot of going on, primarily seeing how Major Lazer (the character, not the band) is constructed, but there’s a lot of random lyrics flying across the screen. Flipping a sample from Johnny Osbourne’s “Mr. Marshall,” this new Major Lazer track is a great example of how the reggae sound not only influenced the EDM styles of today, but how it can work really well over some serious dubstep. I won’t even attempt to understand how much input Diplo and crew had when a don like Flux Pavilion is on the track (with additional production credits going to Schlachthofbronx), because it ultimately doesn’t even matter. Big, big track, out now on Mad Decent.
BONUS Here’s a video of the Major Lazer crew talking about the making of this track:
