Major Lazer & DJ Snake – Lean On (feat. MØ) (Dillon Francis X Jauz Remix)
Here’s the protocol to ensure your release receives an extensive catalogue:
Step 1: Write a pop-trap song
Step 2: Be Diplo
Major Lazer & DJ Snake’s “Lean On (feat. MØ)” is to 2015 as what Jack Ü‘s “Take Ü There” was to 2014. With remixes surfacing constantly, contenders had better do something impressive to have a voice among the masses. Thankfully, the much-anticipated pairing of Dillon Francis and Jauz has delivered.
Dillon has been teasing fans with this remix for awhile, and finally the track is available to the public. They start with a slow twist on the original track, underlaid with titillating bass pads, leading into an elephantine, rave-inspired trap drop. After calming down with a reprise of the sedated vocals, the remix eventually explodes into a frenzied, sped up disruption of jungle terror vibes.
A word to the wise: don’t try to lean on anyone when this track comes on at a festival, because if you try, you may get trampled.
