Much like Will Ferrell in the movie Semi-Pro, Major Lazer (pictured) loves to get tropical.
Teaming up with Dutch producer Wiwek, the two have released an extravagant new remix of US-born, Nigerian recording artist Davido’s track Skelewu. A somewhat lesser known industry name, Wiwek’s affinity for island rhythms and tropical beats makes for an ideal collaboration with Major Lazer. Wiwek released his first EP, Totem, back in 2012 through Mad Decent, and he’s slowly been making a name for himself with his Diplo and Gregor Salto collaborations as well as remixes of Tiesto, Laidback Luke, Freddie Le Grand, and more.
The Skelewu remix finds the Dutch producer right at home with Major Lazer. Wasting no time with any sort of buildup, this track dives head first into a storm of pulsing, hammering beats before exploding into a mix of bursting synth and ringing vocals from Davido.
