Major Lazer unfortunately have to postpone the release of their album “Free The Universe” but to hold us over they’re providing us with three different compilations of rarities, remixes and edits. The first volume features their own remix of Hot Chip along with remixes from Jack Beats, Yellow Claw and DGRC.

“Our fans are the most important part of what makes Major Lazer what it is. It is with that consideration that “FREE THE UNIVERSE” will not be released this month as previously scheduled. We never want to disappoint our supporters but circumstances out of our control have made us unable to keep the intended date. For anyone disappointed, we are truly apologetic and we promise that this hiccup has only made what we have planned for the album stronger. We tried extremely hard to keep the date but it was ultimately decided that rushing the album would have been unfair to you and everyone who worked so hard on it. An iTunes exclusive pre-order in the US will launch next Tuesday, 2/26 which will feature an instant grat download of the forthcoming Major Lazer single “Watch Out for This (Bumaye).”

Delving into Psychemagik’s soundcloud page is like wandering into a balearic wormhole that transports you back to the days of dirty moog laserbeams. Psychemagik’s productions always seem to have a warmth to them, evoking the serenity of sitting on the beach watching a lunar eclipse or the
unfiltered nostalgia of hearing songs you loved and forgot about blared out in a slightly repackaged format.

All of this is at work in their newest offering, the second installment of four limited edition 12″s in a series of edits from their forthcoming re-edits album “Healin’ Feelin’s”.

“Ass Nation” is a white hot ball of pure funk energy, riding somewhere in between Tom Tom Club and Sly & The Family Stone- the guitars are hypnotizing. Flip side “Upskirt” is a skeezy narrative boogie-rock tale about murder soundtracked by echoing flangers and sparse tambourine shakes, guaranteed to make you walk across the dancefloor like you’re in a movie.

Grab the whole thing at Phonica, and while you’re at it why don’t you take some generous free Psychemagik edits too? Like, say, their Metronomy remix of “Everything Goes My Way” and a ten and a half minute Yardbirds edit that goes to some pretty marvelous places.
