Back in March, the mighty Major Lazer dropped their remix EP Lazer Strikes Back Vol 1. We’ve been revisiting the EP recently, and re-remembered this absolutely overlooked Hot Chip remix. Diplo and co deliver their trademark wob wob bass, sitting perfectly behind Alexis Taylor’s soothing voice. This is one of the reasons we Love Major Lazer so much – the club bangers are obviously amazing, but it’s these more laid back jams that really set him out from the crowd. Who would have thought that Trap could be so mellow? Fave bit – 3.00 mins in when it breaks down into a Reggae skank.
