LISTEN: Major Lazer Remix Beastie Boys
Diplo and Switch put a bangin' dancehall groove on "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win," featuring Santigold.
On Beastie Boys’ latest album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win” is a chill dub and reggae track with guest vocals from Santigold. Irie, man! But with their just-released remix, DJ/producers Diplo and Switch, aka Major Lazer, crank up the intensity and hit the dancehall. Listen below.
The remix is an aural feast fit for a Trench Town club. The duo layer on clacking percussion, a steady bass thump, blaring vuvuzela horns, and overdubbed vocals of a Rasta shouting about a united world. One love on the dance floor!
