Greetings TickuTalk fans!Â It’s been a while since my last post, so I thought I should get a quick postÂ up this weekend. Â This is a new track from Major Lazer, and while it’s not really reggae, Major Lazer will always hold a special place in my heart. Â My introduction to Major Lazer was back in 2009 after hearing a song called “Hold The Line”. Â At that point in time, I did not listen to much dancehall anymore, and was becoming more focused on roots/conscious reggae. Â However, there was something special about “Hold The Line” that somehow made it different than other dancehall being produced at the time. Â It had an electro vibe that made it sound very fresh and unique. Â The rest as they say is history, as Major Lazer has since taken the world by storm. Â Indeed, they recently toured India and shot part of the video for their latest track there:
Over the years, Major Lazer has continued its genre-bending ways with great success, fusingÂ salsa, soca and other rhythms with an EDM backbone. Â As the members of the Major Lazer project have changed, it continues to grow and even expand into other mediums. Â A new Major Lazer cartoon debuted this year on the FXX network, and it was just renewed for a second season. Â Major Lazer is definitely a musical force to be reckoned with, and I’m looking forward to their future projects.
