Featured Artist: Major Lazer

Written by Rory Burbeck | Thursday, Mar 7, 2013

Despite recent delays, rumor has it that Major Lazer is releasing its second full-length album, Free the Universe, sometime in the near future. If the singles released last year are any indication, we hope it’s sooner rather than later. “Get Free,” which was released last May, is a song with real depth. The soothing voice of the Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman beautifully enhances the catchy dub/reggae groove and dream-like synthesizers.
