Major Lazer - Watch Out For This (Bumaye)

Amsterdam based DJ/Producer The Flexican has teamed up with Major Lazer, the dancehall, electro, Hip-Hop side project team created by Diplo for the release of “Watch Out For This (Bumaye).”

“Watch Out For This (Bumaye)” is already a Moombathon anthem and the first taste of Major Lazer’s forthcoming album, Free The Universe. However, this track has origins dating back to 2005 when The Flexican remixed his own original production entitled “Bumaye.” Diplo heard the track and hooked up with The Flexican, co-producer FS Green and recruited dancehall singer Busy Signal to drop vocals over the remake. The result is an island jam uniting Caribbean vibes with the modern dance floor and it’s poised to be one of the biggest tracks of WMC/MMW.

“The Flexican was the first DJ I met in Holland seven years ago and he introduced me to the eclectic style of Dutch house and Dutch Hip Hop. I'm always looking for cutting edge sounds, so with “Bumaye” we took The Flexican’s classic idea and made a modern monster record,” Diplo says.
