Major Lazer - Hold The Line

Major Lazer is a duo of DJ's.  The pair of Diplo and Switch are behind the strange image of this group.  "Hold The Line" features Santigold and Mr. Lexx.  You can find the track on their album, Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do.  The truth about the song is... it's catchy.  The guitar work is what carries the song, along with Santigold.  The song starts off sounding almost like an old western showdown, with the sound of a clopping horse.  Then you hear it, "Major Lazer!".  Yes, the groups name is shouted at the beginning of the song.  Finding a correct genre for this unique song would be incredibly difficult.  It mixes reggae, electronic, hip-hop, and dance elements.  The result of this fusion is nothing else, but Major Lazer.  I would checkout this track if you need some... odd music.  You won't find too much that's similar to this act.  I didn't think I would like this song, but I do.  You should give it a try.
