Major Lazer : Watch Out For This # Bumaye

Major Lazer Share

Delayed more times than your average big budget hip-hop album, the promise of a full-length follow-up to Major Lazer‘s 2009 debut album Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do has been dangled and then cruelly snatched away so many times you’d be forgiven for believing it might never come out. Now we know that Free The Universe has been pushed back again – to April 15 – but with that announcement comes the surprising news that Diplo and friends have signed with Secretly Canadian, who will release the record as a joint venture with Mad Decent and Downtown. By way of apology for this latest hold-up, the group have offered up this free mini-mixtape, as well as album track “Watch Out for This (Bumaye)”, a typically heavy dancehall rave-up featuring Busy Signal, the Flexican and FS Green that suggests the LP could just might end up being worth the wait. Listen below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz.
