We already heard the original cut of Major Lazer’s comeback track “Original Don” – you likely remember its insane, complex amalgamation of about ten different beats – but remixer Dexter Tortoriello, better known as Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross, has served up a remix of the track that’s just as tight and at moments even more dance-floor appropriate.

It’s heavier on the bass, and the synth elements Tortoriello plays up makes the track feel much darker and colder. The whole thing gets absolutely next-level when Tortoriello slows everything all the way down. Check it out.
