SONG OF THE WEEK: MAJOR LAZER'S "PERCOLATOR (PERCUMAJOR REMIX)"

I can't get Major Lazer out of my head recently. A collaboration between Diplo and Switch, Major Lazer is about the most fun I've had from the gentrification of dance hall reggae. This track is particularly interesting. A remix of Cajmere's Chicago-house hit "Coffee Pot", it flips the popping sample into some hip-rocking syncopation. The beat is awfully similar to Beyonce's "Run the World" which Switch produced, using the track "Pon de Floor" from Major Lazer's LP. Also, dat video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GftlkegBeNE
