Major Lazer leads the way in modern dancehall reggae, as a production team and musical collective headed up by Diplo. Their latest collaborator is another production and collaboration expert, none other than Pharrell Williams. The song they released yesterday is "Aerosol Can" - where the beat actually sounds like the rattle of a spray paint can, and you can hear the sound of the spray a few times through the 3 minute recording above. Pretty cool song for the graffiti culture.
These days everyone thinks of Pharrell as a producer, but his rap game is still tight. The song will be featured on Apocalypse Soon, set to be released on Feb 25th via Mad Decent.
