    The Trailer for ‘Major Lazer: Give Me Future’ Is Here And As Epic As We Hoped


    Guest

    Major Lazer is the focus of a new documentary that explores the globalization of music and follows the electronic trio during their famous concert in downtown Havana in 2016. The first Cuban-American concert ever of such a large scale unexpectedly drew in close to half a million fans!

    Mad Decent leader Diplo and his crew seek to deliver music to the people in Give Me Future. The group visits an area where internet access isn’t readily available and listening to mainstream hits isn’t as simple as starting up Apple Music. Watching them at work, even in just these 2 minutes, to bring fans an entirely new music experience is awesome to see play out.

    In the newly released trailer, Diplo speaks on taking action: “Every artist begs for a moment in time where people are paying attention to you. But when it actually gets to you — you have to seize the moment, because it’s not going to happen again.”

    He continues: “When I started music was kind of being globalized, but there was nothing that sounded like a global band. And I think Major Lazer became that sort of band.”

    The documentary is just the beginning. Give Me Future and it’s companion album will feature new music from Major Lazer, as well as Cuban artists, and Valentino Khan’s new single “Gold” featuring Sean Paul.

    The film hits Apple Music on November 17th.

      French producer Mathieu Koss has been carving a solid name for himself for a few years now. Having seen support early in his career from Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix, it’s easy to see why his new single is tinged with some guilt-free summer spiced optimism. The Best Is Yet To Come is Mathieu’s new effort is another great example of his persistent pop house blend.
      Mathieu’s first release, Need Your Lovin, saw immediate global reach. Followed quickly by a deep house version of NJR’s classic I Need Your Love which gained massive DJ interest, later resulting in over 2 million streams. Mathieu is most known so far however for Big Jet Plane alongside fellow DJ, Alok. The soon to be infamous remake of Angus and Julia stones slur of a folk song was a huge world-wide success. Mathieu worked epic levels of euphoria into the track, that was equally met with exhilarating force of music genius.

      Having always been a keen traveller, Mathieu is keen to use emotions conjured up by foreign voyages deep within his work. After being inspired by the uplifting attitude of some newly found Australian friends –Best Is Yet To Come was born. 
      This single was shaped specifically for Joan Alasta’s vocals, who might be recognised from her appearance in Big Jet Plane. Riding high in the mix, Joan plays her part proud.  always keen to draw from multiple influences, Joan refers frequently to the likes of Radiohead and more obscure and traditional Corsican songs. Joan’s constant search for diversity is magnified by Mathieu – both driving us forward with grace and the sheer force of positive thinking.
      Mathieu Koss – Best Is Yet To Come is available April 6th!
