Badhshah Promises An Indian Touch On His Major Lazer Collab

Posted at August 16th, 2017 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in Dance Music, Featured, News

There has been a lot of talk of Major Lazer collaborating with Badshah but now it’s all set in stone. The collaboration will happen as part of the new Tuborg OPEN campaign. Badshah is one of only 3 artists that will be collaborating with the Dancehall legends.

 

It’s a little baffling to have this all actually happen as Badshah and Major Lazer don’t really operate in each other’s worlds. But it’s great to see Major Lazer do what they do best, go out of their way to do something never done before. The trio talked about keeping the collab pretty basic. Diplo spoke about the Tuborg OPEN campaign. Excerpts;

 

 “as a producer I’d like a person who is open in spite of creativity; my idea is to change production for each person. It is better to make something very basic because each person will be involved and it will be better not to get complicated. It’s going to be the same back beat for all of the artists to work on, which is very exciting.  Our collaborators are gonna add production, or maybe take it away, but we all agreed the beat we made had to be open to interpretation.  And it’s very open-ended, but it sounds like a Major Lazer song.  We’re just excited to see what people are gonna do with it.”

 

 

Badshah added;

 “They have given me an opportunity to express the main beat sonically as well as vocally which is amazing. There is going to be lot of influence and this not going to be there for namesake. It is actually going to be very organic. They would be expecting some Indian element obviously as I am an Indian and so as an Indian it will be my duty to represent the country and infuse it with the sound of Major Lazer. It will be very universal I think they will be expecting Indian music into Major Lazer sound with my vocals in it.”
