Song Of The Day: Major Lazer - Get Free

This past May, Major Lazer released the track "Get Free" featuring one of the singers from the Dirty Projectors, Amber Coffman, who is well known for her collaboration with Rusko on the track "Hold On." For Major Lazer, a group effort between producers Diplo and Switch, this track is a departure from their usual Dancehall, Moombahton, Reggae Hip Hop style. The track is hypnotizing, melodic, and peaceful, and the minimal, down-tempo production really highlights Coffman's incredible vocals.  The track was released by Downtown Music LLC on the 3-track Get Free EP. Major Lazer is currently on tour in Australia, and will be headed to Southeast Asia.

Song Of The Day: Daphni - Ye Ye (Alternative Electronic)

Caribou's Dan Snaith is about as versatile a musician as they come. "Ye Ye" is a track off Jialong, released October 9th on Merge Records under Snaith's newest musical project Daphni. The new name lets the listener know to expect something different from his previous works, and on that promise Jialong delivers. All in all, the project combines Snaith's technical ability with some of the more root elements of dance music. Each track has its own distinctive feel, but the differences are subtle. In particular, "Ye Ye" with it's hypnotic melodies, repetitious vocals, and dark-driving bass get your head bobbing right from the start, and demonstrate why many have praised this work as Snaith's "antidote to bad EDM." You can check out the entire album here.
