Hold the Line Sep 12 2012
Major Lazer is the new dancehall project from Diplo & Switch (who have produced hits for MIA, Santogold, Spank Rock, Amanda Blank to name a few), featuring all Jamaican artists over their original productions. The album “Guns Dont Kill People, Lazers Do” is poised to be the soundtrack for summer, and this is the first single – exclusively available on vinyl here! Diplo says “Hold The Line – its like a surf rock ragga thingamajig, zeen! and its got Mr Lexx (formerly Lexxuss) and Santigold (formerly Santogold) rockin out.” You get the full DJ versions of “Hold The Line” with instrumental and acapella, plus a killer remix from Toadally Krossed Out that takes the surf rock theme out even further. And finally the b-side features the exclusive, in demand and unreleased “Run For Cover” with Ward 21 vocals. This is a no brainer!
