Major Lazer [ft. Vybz Kartel] - "Pon de Floor (Wolf-E-Wolf Remix)"

illustration by Arlo Rams
Arkansas' reigning dubstep head honcho Wolf-E-Wolf doesn't drop tracks all too often, but when he does, it's usually quite an event. And this rework of the '09 Major Lazer classic is his most impressive offering to date.

Wolf has been owning the Central Arkansas party circuit lately. He's headlined just about every Cool Shoes and Sub Kulture in the past year—this is the case even when they've got big-name out-of-towners on the bill. This remix is a good indication that Wolf won't likely be slowing down anytime soon.

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:

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).

Major Lazer [ft. Andy Milonakis] - "Zumbi"

Andy Milonakis

This popped up on my radar a few days ago. I didn't even bother posting it initially because I assumed the PMA-minded blog universe would collectively and immediately overexpose it. Strangely, it hasn't yet landed on any of the "bigger" blogs I watch. That's somewhat perplexing. I wonder if there's some pact between the Mad Decent fam and the upper crust blogosphere that this particular track is off limits. If so, I didn't get the memo, so here you go.

For those of you not in the know, Major Lazer is the dancehall project of Switch and Diplo. They've been talking about the project for well over a year now, and we'll finally get to hear the full fruits of their labor on June 16, when their album will drop on Downtown Music.

On "Zumbi," the Shmilosmakis' hyper-faux ragga freestyle chant will keep your diaphragm active while Switch and Diplo's minimalist dancehall thud will make you want to get rill hostile up in the club:

In other Mad Decent news, cumbia/raverton king Toy Selectah released a free full length album of his remixes last night. If only I had this when I DJed for a very impatient salsa crowd a few weeks back. Click here to get the zip.
