"Knock You Down" (Major Lazer & Jack Beats Remix)

The names Jack Beats and Major Lazer are virtually synonymous with the current trends, so this collaboration is bound to get any fan excited. The London based duo have welcomed the highly revered Major Lazer in revamping their track "Knock You Down" from their Somebody To Love EP, producing a remix that is nothing short of superb. Fully laden with a pounding bassline and an energy that could send anyone into cardiac arrest, the two have certainly blown me away by demonstrating how perfectly their musical styles work together, leaving me desperate for more work from these two in the future.

Track of the Day: "Watch Out For This" (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Remix) - Major Lazer

After producing Tomorrowland's official theme tunes for the past three years, Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike have become international sought-after producers for their profound editing skills, it is no surprise the duo have remixed Major Lazer's "Watch Out for This" with their recent successful African-inspired sounds heard in "Turn it Up/Mammoth" and "Wakanda."



Enhancing Major Lazer’s afro-cuban, laid-back track, the pair kick up the beat tenfold adding to their remix a perfect main room sound. The track starts out the memorable horn pattern that screams summer, edging into the repeated "watch out for this" chants, which combine perfectly to lead into a Progressive House line that makes you want to get out your chair and dance.

Track of the Day: "Boing Clash Boom" (Major Lazer Remix) - Dada Life

I always anticipate Dada Life's DJ Mix and May 2013's broadcast left my mouth watering. Olle & Stefan featured some banging remixes in their first for this warm weather and one in particular stood out: Major Lazer's remix of their own hit "Boing Clash Boom." Trap and the two Swedes are not a combination you'd usually expect, but one must not forget there are no rules to Dada. With Diplo's signature sound juxtaposed with some powerful bass and snippets of D&B there's something to appreciate in here for everybody. We'll update you when the extended mix drops soon!

Track of the Day: "Get Free" (Avicii Edit) - Major Lazer ft. Amber

I did not think that "Get Free" could possibly be better. I was wrong. This version from Avicii is truly epic, and the sped up tempo really does something great to the track. This is an obvious departure from the typical Avicii sound, but it really pops in the way all of his tracks do. A remix this different and varied showcases his talent as one of the scene's top producers, and I can't wait to hear more of this new side of Tim. Excellent remix from one of the most talented producers around!

"Watch Out For This" (Bumaye) - Major Lazer

Unfortunately for me, Major Lazer’s highly-anticipated album, Free The Universe, has been pushed back until April. I was devastated when I heard this news, but fortunately ML has decided to release the second single from the album (the first one being "Jah No Partial") to tide us over. "Watch Out For This" (Bumaye) is the polar opposite of "Jah No Partial," taking a lot of inspiration from Jamaican dancehall instead of the bass genres. Tracks like this are the reason I love Major Lazer so much: the music produced by Diplo and the rest of his crew has this unique ability to blend together a huge spectrum of different styles into one unique sound. There are no other artists out there that can go from Dubstep bangers to dancehall-Moombah anthems like Major Lazer can, which is the reason why I’m so excited for the full Free The Universe release. But until then, I’ll just have to bide my time with this hot new track!
