There may be a thunderstorm going on outside my window right now, but nobody makes it rain quite like Major Lazer. Everyone’s favorite one-armed, machine gun-wielding, red beret-wearing producer is back, and he’s not alone. Diplo and company have joined forces with Toronto native Grandtheft to create an absolutely earthshaking remix of Machel Montano’s giant 2013 soca hit, The Fog. Shake off the cobwebs, and get ready to dance to this one, because it is huge!
Pulsing synths, caribbean themes, an irresistible melody, and some hard bass–sounds like a Major Lazer track to me. The original, made by Trinidad & Tobago’s Machel Montano, is already catchy enough, but in the talented hands of Major Lazer and Grandtheft, it just got serious. The Fog remix is the definition of a summer banger–here’s hoping we hear more material from the two in the future. Grab it for free right now on Major Lazer’s SoundCloud.
