Shortly after it was released, Major Lazer’s “Bubble Butt” inspired a twerk revolution and Dada Life plan to fan the flames with their high octane, sausage fattened remix. Adding their signature grit, Olle and Stefan take “Bubble Butt” out of its cheeky comfort zone and turn the track into something sinister. The Hyde to Major Lazer’s Jekyll, Dada Life’s “Bubble Butt” is anything but bubbly, turning the tracks namesake into a maniacal growl. While it still may inspire impromptu ass-shaking the results are prompted to be much more extreme.Posted by

Taking a page out of frontman Diplo’s book of music video allure, Major Lazer present the visuals for “Scare Me,” one of the standout records from this year’s Free The Universe. Bringing animation to life, the video features the group’s representative militant (now known as the major) played by Terry Crews. The Major is presented with a mission to find General Rubbish in a fictional knife fight that brings viewers through an electronic action mini-flick that gives Major Lazer the bad-ass presence they demand on stage.Posted by
It would require fingers and toes to count the amount of times “Animals” was heard, and the same could be said for anthems such as “Cannonball,” “Clarity,” or “Play Hard.” Beneath the most played tracks at Tomorrowland, however, certain drops stood out with significance, truly making an impression on Tomorrowland and its crowd. These tracks influenced the festival on a level only comprehendible for those immersed within its sets, stages and, most importantly, the dreamworld experience in which they created.
Dancing Astronaut was on the ground to catch the moments where select records made an impact and became symbolic of dance music’s greatest weekend; here we proudly present our soundtrack to Tomorrowland 2013.
Since the release of their first EP, Major Lazer have perfected the infusion of dancehall vibes with a modern electronic music flair. The Diplo-led production outfit’s latest remix of Machel Montano’s “The Fog” follows their patented formula to a tee.

Chirpy keys, headsplitting kicks and a quaking bass line match Montano’s bombastic vocal style with shocking success. Like everything stamped with the Major Lazer insignia, this production is just weird enough to work. Download it today for free.Posted by

Major Lazer rides high off the success of Free The Universe, and their single with Bruno Mars, Tyga, Mystic, and most recently 2 Chainz has been a standout dance gem. “Bubble Butt” embodies Diplo’s message over the past year or so: a call for ass-shaking. “Express Yourself” sparked a viral dance of its own that had the world doing hand stands and “Butters Theme” had fans seeing triple. “Bubble Butt” now puts the glorified booty-shaking on display once again, this time in tandem with a song that instantly provokes such gyrations.
