Major Lazer

Major Lazer – Que Calor (feat. J Balvin & El Alfa)

The iconic electronic dance music trio Major Lazer is back with a brand new record titled ‘Que Calor‘.  The track, which features vocals from latin artists J Balvin and El Alfa, is out now on Mad Decent and becomes the second confirmed single of the group’s upcoming fourth and last album, after ‘Make It Hot‘.

The legendary producers are known for their amazing ability to switch between different electronic music genres, resulting in spectacular musical outcomes. This time it hasn’t been any different, as they keep surprising fans with a genre that it appears they’ve been enjoying quite a lot lately; latin house music. To do so, they’ve counted on the help of the Colombian megastar J Balvin and the Dominican-based singer El Alfa, two of the household and hottest names in the latin/reggaeton music scene.

The song samples the old-time classic ‘Curura‘ by Toto La Momposina, and it is used as the main bass that, along with different transposed trap-music chops and traditional reggeaton beats and snares, accompany the vocals throughout the track. ‘Que Calor‘ is destined to be club and radio material and for that, Major Lazer play around it wisely adding in key moments more or less energy, dynamism, movement and that catchy rhythm that only the great masters can create. J Balvin and El Alfa do the rest by adding some hot latin lyrics on top of the track that complete a perfectly-balanced commercial release.

It is truly one of the saddest news of the year that this one is going to be the last album we’ll get to listen from the popular electronic music group. It is never easy to accept that one of the greatest projects in the scene is coming to an end. Let’s wait to see what they have left in store for us!
