Major Lazer’s new song ‘Go Dung’ is the perfect soundtrack for 2017’s end https://t.co/9NWBOxcuwZ
Say what you will about the dancehall-recontextualising trio Major Lazer . But you can’t deny that its constituent parts of Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire know how to make party-shaking, limb-unlocking music. Their latest transmission is “Go Dung” , which is Jamaican patois for “go down” and features Trinidad and Tobago soca-R&B fusionists Kes . For all intents and purposes, it’s an exquisitely swaying party anthem. Dancehall, soca and bass music converge in this heady, tropical banger in a manner that transcends any hang-up about taste. It’s just good, infectiously delightful, dance-inviting pop.
