Major Lazer – Night Riders

Major Lazer just dropped another new single today in anticipation of their upcoming album Peace is the Mission. “Night Riders” has a heavy hip-hop beat but doesn’t abandon the pseudo-Rastafarian sound that the Major is known for. The track features verses from Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, Pusha T and Mad Cobra, all of which are a pleasure to listen to. I’ve always enjoyed that when Diplo and Switch founded Major Lazer in 2009 they decided to create the group under the persona of an insanely muscular Jamaican cyborg that releases crazy electronic music. Although Switch is no longer with Major Lazer and has been replaced by DJs Jillionaire and Walshy Fire, the cyborg from Kingston has retained his sound. I look forward to all the crazy “moombahton” music to come.
