The original track is from Music Is the Weapon, Major Lazer’s just-released fourth album. It marks three years since hip-hop hitmaker Montana and the tropical bass trio collaborated on “Leg Over” featuring Mr. Eazi and Ty Dolla $ign. That song received the Nigeria Entertainment Award for “Hottest Single of the Year.”
“I was searching for a song that I could remix, when ‘Bam Bam’ took my eyes, as it was on #1 in the record pool,” Rogerson says. “It already had the Afro-type vibe that I like, but I wanted to combine that with some full tech-house sounds. I had to find the right way to transition between the styles, but I’m very pleased with the result!”

The visual centers around a wild photoshoot featuring the artists. Carnival season opens this Thursday, so the urban anthem is aimed for this weekend’s activities in the streets of Rio and beyond. Continuing with the theme, Major Lazer has recently released its Soca Storm EP.

12 years later and Diplo‘s side project Major Lazer has set a standard as progressive as that of the DJ/producer himself. The trio’s latest is “King of the Party,” from their just-released Soca Storm EP. Caribbean and South American Carnival season starts in two weeks (February 20-25), so this soca-meets-trap-meets-hardstyle production is right on time.

On Friday, Major Lazer celebrated their impressive career by dropping a 25-track compilation album titled Major Lazer Essentials. All of the tracks had been previously released except for “Blow That Smoke,” an Afrobeats-influenced anthem featuring Tove Lo.
With the track gaining momentum (it’s currently No. 2 on DJcity), Major Lazer and Tove have returned with a video for it. The fitting-visual takes place at a smoke and sweat-filled party in the jungle — or so it seems.
Watch above and download the track on DJcity. ALSO, to celebrate the release of the album, Major Lazer asked DJcity to make available a number of their throwbacks and unreleased instrumentals. You can get them here.
