The upcoming Major Lazer album, Free the Universe has been delayed — or more specifically, “kidnapped by General Rubbish”. In the meantime we’re getting three volumes of unreleased material leading up to the album’s release, starting with Lazer Strikes Back Vol 1.
Vol 1 features the gorgeous extended version of Lazer’s big ravey rework of Hot Chip‘s “Look At Where We Are”, a trap-meets-dancehall mix of “Get Free” from up-and-coming Amsterdam trio Yellow Claw, a dramatic-step remix of “Original Don” from mystery producer DGRC and a confetti-exploding-hands-in-the-air remix of “Jah No Partial” from the London dons, Jack Beats.
Keep an eye out for Lazer’s next single “Watch Out for This (Bumaye)”; a free download for those who pre-order Free the Universe next tuesday, 2/26.
