Essentials Review

by Matt Collar

Electronic trio Major Lazer celebrates their decade-long run as club kings with the 25-track compilation Essentials. Showcasing the combined DJ and production skills of Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire, as well as original member Switch, the collection showcases the group's dynamic, globe-trotting sound, combining high-energy house music, dancehall, moombahton, and other styles. Included on Essentials are many of the group's biggest tracks, including "Blow That Smoke" featuring Tove Lo, "Lean On" with MØ and DJ Snake, "Pon De Floor," with Vybz Kartel, and more.
