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