Comedian/rapper/vocalist of Lonely Island and When Will The Bass Drop fame Andy Samberg joins Major Lazer as a group named “Dr. Nerd” for a new single titled Bass Drop, which premiered via Major Lazer’s FXX cartoon.
Pounding dembow meets hard-edged, electro-tinged moombahton on the new track as the villainous character known as Dr. Nerd battles Major Lazer on the episode in which the track debuted. Intriguingly, the Samberg-voiced sample that says “you just met your fucking end” bears a strong resemblance to the vocal drop on Knife Party’s iconic 2011 Internet Friends. Each episode of the animated program so far has featured brand-new Major Lazer material alongside the crew’s iconic tracks.
No official word has been given regarding if or when the Dr. Nerd track will surface on either of Major Lazer’s planned 2015 releases.
