Major Lazer joins forces with Swedish rapper Elliphant and Jamaican vocalist Jovi Rockwell to get us all twerking and grinding “to the 128 (BPM) beat” on rollicking dancehall/big room hybrid Too Original, the newest single from the group’s upcoming Peace Is The Mission album.
Right from the get-go the fun and energy is relentless. The female vocalists provide a salacious invite for ravers into the dancehall and vice versa as the galloping bassline thumps alongside carnival-style synths that evoke thoughts of vuvuzelas. Chop those noisemakers against a kickdrum and it’s a recipe for madness.
