FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Major Lazer Feat. Lexxus & Santigold "Hold The Line"

Lazer, Lexxus & Santi Make Yuh Just Shake Like A Nokia

It’s undeniable that 2013 was a huge year for Major Lazer, selling out show after show and being on the production credits of many huge albums their name and fan base has definitely grown. There was a time however when only a select few were privy to the unique sound of Major Lazer, let’s say around the 2009 right before the Vybz Kartel assisted “Pon De Floor” ravaged the airwaves (and our eyes, if you saw the video) there was another tune entitled “Hold The Line.” Lazer pegged dancehall star Lexxus and rapper/singer Santigold a combination at the time no one saw coming, but given the collaborations Lazer have had over the years this was one of the more tamer ones.

HEAR THIS: DJ Sliink & DJ Fresh Direct "Murder"

Out In The Streets They Call It…

They call DJ Sliink “The Jersey Club King” but don’t hold it against him. Sliink and NYC’s DJ Fresh Direct joined forces on a hard-hitting refix that’s aptly titled “Murder.” According to his Soundcloud Sliink chopped up the vocals on the Ini Kamoze sample from Damian Marley’s dancehall classic “Welcome To Jamrock,” while DJ Fresh Direct threw the 808s underneath. The result is, well, murderous. Audio After The Jump… Read more »

HEAR THIS: Popcaan "Everything Nice"

The First Single Off Papi’s Debut Album

Don’t be deceived by the title—everyTING is not as nice as it may appear at first glance. Sure Popcaan may be the raving king, but why does he rave? “Me nuh when me go inna the grave,” he sang on one of his best-known party tunes, “so right now me ravin.” On this Dubbel Dutch production, Popcaan peppers the airy, atmospheric track with pensive thoughts about the people who work hard, all who gone to the morgue, or wish R.I.P. to a loved one. “Put your cups dem high,” the Hotskull intones. It’s a celebration, bitches. Popcaan’s debut album is due out on Mixpak records early next year. The key concept? “Bittersweet blissfulness.” Get your mind right.  Audio After The Jump…
