Machel Montano is a soca singer from Trinidad and Tobago. Electronic–dance hall king Diplo has come out with a remix of Montano’s excellent track “The Fog,” and given it the Major Lazer treatment, along with DJ Grandtheft. The result is a larger-than-life, booming song that’s perfect for summer parties kicking into high-gear with the heat.
Diplo’s going to have a busy summer, heading up the annual Mad Decent Block Party, which has expanded over the years from a Philly gathering into a national tour, spanning 13 cities this year, including Toronto. Also making their way to the block parties are DJ-duo Flosstradamus, Riff Raff, Dillon Francis, Zeds Dead, and Matt and Kim, among others.
You can probably expect to hear this banger there.
5. And here’s Montano’s original video:
- Two people on a civilian airplane were killed in a mid-air collision with a military jet in South Carolina. The F-16 jet pilot was ejected and is "in good shape."
- Subway has suspended Jared Fogle, the weight-loss guy from their commercials, due to an FBI investigation.
- Bounce TV and BET will no longer air series featuring Bill Cosby after court records showed he admitted to buying sedatives to give to women.
