Following the hype of their third full length LP ‘Peace Is The Mission’, the EDM dancehall supergroup Major Lazer have decided spice things up with a remix contest for the album’s single ‘Be Together‘ with Wild Belle.
The competition submissions closes on January 6th but we’re already rooting for I.Y.F.F.E‘s remix to win this one. I.Y.F.F.E is a Brazilian producer who has been slaying Soundcloud with massive tunes that defy the laws of bass music. He took a quick jab at Major Lazer’s tune and we couldn’t have been more impressed with the outcome..

The beautifully arranged vocal melody receives new harmonic accompaniment with the piano arrangement that pushes the emotional tension of the lyrics. The remix sounds like a solid predictable EDM track up until the buildup where the sinister strings begin poking away at the beautiful imagery of the track. With a powerful buildup and an unsettling amount of detail, the track finally drops with some raunchy trap horns. The waves of percussion and fierce vocal sampling puts this one in the realms of ‘dummy trap’ if you know how that goes.
‘Be Together’s original concept is preserved by the attention of melodic content, yet it’s thrown in a new direction by the explosion of energy that hit the listener at the drop. For those looking to add a heart pounding banger into their set we would highly recomend downloading this track for free here by Uprise Music.
