Picture me, picturing you, picturing Phil Collins and The Knife getting into a mojito drinking contest. It’s pretty much what “Get Free” sounds like. We all know the best jams come from “animated” musicians, e.g. Gorillaz, Daft Punk’s Interstella 5555, the California Raisins. In that same vein of virtual virtuosos, Major Lazer is the Jamaican dancehall GI Joe incarnation of producers Diplo and Switch.
The latest track “Get Free” isn’t your typical dancehall-daggering Major Lazer mix. It finds indie crossover success mostly through guest vocals by Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors.
Topical, yet Tropical
My bro Le Beep once said, “The world needs less dubstep and more tropical paradises.” Bonde do Role must have been listening in because they remixed a delicious version of “Get Free”. Summer 2012 is in full effect!
