Major Lazer conclude 'Lazers Strikes Back' saga with 'Free The Universe' edits
Dance music’s vibrant outfit of in-your-face fun known as Major Lazer pay testament to the word “party” each time they play live. Behind the scenes, however, the group’s uncanny energy and creativity is reflected in their studio releases, last packaged in album form through Free The Universe.
With Diplo and his Mad Decent imprint at the helm, Major Lazer often release non-album work with Lazers Strikes Back — a series which is now concluding with its sixth installment. The collection features edits from the aforementioned April album, slowed-down versions as unique as the originals. The finale of Lazers Strike Back features Free The Universe dub from Mungo and So Shifty, who alter the tempo on tracks such as “Bumaye,” “Jah No Partial,” and “Get Free,” to name a few.
