With You. – Ghost (Major Lazer Remix)
Major Lazer was originally created as an ever-evolving cast of collaborators and contributors. It’s been almost 10 years since the group was formed and nearly five since founding member, Switch, announced he was moving on from the project. While Diplo has taken Major Lazer to new heights alongside Walshy Fire and Jillionaire, his founding counterpart recently launched a new side project, also aimed at organic collaboration, known as With You. One of Switch’s first orders of business behind his newly minted production guise was to link up with Long Beach-bred rap phenom Vince Staples, and now, it looks like With You. has caught Diplo’s ear, resulting in a new Major Lazer remix of their track,”Ghost.”
Premiered via Major Lazer’s Lazer Sound on Beats 1, the trio unveiled their spin on With You. and Vince Staples’ joint effort, upping the ante with a welcomed shift in tempo from the original mix. Holding close to the original’s siren-work and clinking percussion arrangements, Major Lazer enhance “Ghost” with their infectious dancehall appeal, bringing Diplo and Switch’s production styles together once again in an unlikely new way.
