Major Lazer – When You Hear The Bassline (Ft. Ms Thing) (zshare)

This is not the dancehall your mom used to listen to in the roaring 20’s when people would dance the charleston and turntables were powered by coal. No, this is modern, contemporary dancehall. We already reluctantly featured Major Lazer before. Diplo and Switch straight killed it on this album production wise and the guests are all everyone you wanted to hear from the world of dancehall but were afraid to ask. This is a great song to start the mothafuckin weekend. The pace is fast, the beat is thumping and those pauses make you go like “Where is the song! Start it again! Don’t leave me hangin’ like this mofo!”. And then they just bring it back like your mom brought back chlamydia from her trip to Brazil. If you don’t know about Major Lazer you need to get on that shit right now. Here is the video for the song Hold The Line which brings back memories of the 80’s cartoons we used to all watch before we cared about sex:

At some point last year, Walmer Convenience became aware of Prince Zimboo. It was all Wang Pang’s fault really. He’s the one who brought the Black Chiney mixtape to Sto’s place that had a few verses from Prince Zimboo on it. As we listened to him flow for those brief moments, we were mesmerized. Who was this guy who sounded like he was from the movie Coming To America? We ended up playing those sections of the mixtape over and over and over. Then Wang Pang got us in even deeper when he added Prince Zimboo as a friend on Myspace. Unlike any other music person on Myspace when you add them, Prince Zimboo actually acknowledged him with a personalized message. The Dirty Frenchman tried it too and was delighted when he saw “Respeck Dirty Man!!! Heh!” in his comments section. And to top it all off, this appeared:

Prince Zimboo – Say Heh (zshare)

Yeah, that’s right. That’s Prince Zimboo giving you life advice and dropping some of the best one liners ever over the riddim of Pop Champagne. Can you believe this guy: “Your mouth is moving. You are getting worked up but I hear no words. You are like masturbating fish.” That, right there, is enough for a medal. There was also this little ditty:

Prince Zimboo – Zimboo Boomayeah (zshare)

and this:

Prince Zimboo – I Love J.A. (zshare)

Don’t we all aspire to be punani McGyvers? Don’t forget your Daggerin Condoms! Here is another track that people may like:

Prince Zimboo – Lightswitch (zshare)

Apparently Walmer Convenience are not the only ones to be impressed by Prince Zimboo. He is on the Major Lazer collab by Diplo and Switch that dropped a few days ago. Is it possible that he will get famous (as in for real famous, not hipster famous)? Will he just be a passing novelty act? Heh? …?

A FUCK YOU EVERYBODY SONG OF THE DAY: MAJOR LAZER ft SANTIGOLD & MR LEXX – HOLD THE LINE   3 comments

Major Lazer – Hold The Line (zshare)

Yeah, everybody’s talking about Major Lazer this and Major Lazer that. Everyone is looking forward to it coming out. Everyone is like “Ooohh! Aaaahh! I can’t wait to hear what Diplo and Switch and every awesome dancehall artist sounds like!” Well fuck it, so did we but we were gonna pretend like we didn’t. We were gonna stand above the fray. We were gonna look at the hype in the face and punch it in the mouth. That’s what we do at Walmer Convenience. Well this song has been around for a while and yes, it fucking rocks and yes, the album will rock. We will play it a lot. Here are some remixes for your stank asses:

Major Lazer – Hold The Line (Poirier Remix) (zshare)

Major Lazer – Pon De Floor (BeatauCue Remix) (zshare)

Major Lazer – Pon de Floor (Ernold Sane Remix) (zshare)

And as an added bonus we have our old pal Prince Zimboo, captured in video form, freestyling over what we guess will be known henceforth as “hold the line riddim”

There, now that’s out of our system. Get back to your life. Heh.
