Major Lazer [ft. Ms. Thing] - "When You Hear the Bassline"

Gay Fish & Major Lazer

Oddly enough, this is only my second Major Lazer post. Usually I hype any larger Mad Decent project into oblivion, but this one I've been taking it easy with because seemingly every other blog on the planet has been holding it down hard.

This Ms. Thing choon is probably my favorite off the album:

;
THIS SONG ON THE HYPE MACHINE! / SAVE IT ON DELICIOUS!

The Dance Area remix ain't bad either. You can pick it up on the iTunes release of the album.

Speaking of which, Guns Don't Kill People...Lazers Do is out today on Downtown. Buy it off Amazon ($9.49), iTunes ($9.99—with bonus tracks).

BONUS: "Hold the Line" [ft. Mr. Lexx & Santigold] [dir. by Ferry Gouw:

Ricky Gervais & Major Lazer

Mad Decent Announces Joint Venture With Downtown

(via Billboard)
Mad Decent logo

Just a quick heads up for those of you who haven't heard. Diplo has just announced a new joint venture between his label, Mad Decent, and Warner sublabel Downtown Music. Read more on Billboard.

This essentially means that Mad Decent, a label caught up in the bustle of not-quite-legit mixtapes, bootlegged re-edits and uncleared samples, will get some major label shine. This is quite a bold move on behalf of Warner, and it's certainly a testament to a changing-but-overwhelmed music industry that can't quite make up its mind on whether it would rather arrest these kinds of whippersnappers or work with them.

P.S. Did anyone catch the Rich Boy remix featuring 607 on the Mad Decent blog?
