It seems that just about everyone I’ve talked to was skeptical about this whole Diplo and Switch sideproject, Major Lazer. Need I remind everyone that Diplo and Switch brought us the wonderful sounds of M.I.A. and Santigold? I never thought that Diplo and Switch’s collaboration would be anything but awesome.
“Hold The Line” is the first leaked track to come Major Lazer’s project, and the vocals are lead by Miss Santi White. Mr. Lexx also contributes, but I think I was sold when I heard Santigold’s track come in. According to their wiki page, their album, Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do, was recorded in Jamaica. Vocalists Santigold, Vybz Cartel, Ward 21, Busy Signal and others contribute guest vocals to the album.
