The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up (Major Lazer Remix)
Major Lazer has decided to Trap things up with their latest remix of The Prodigy‘s ‘Smack My Bitch Up‘. Diplo seems to be all about making Trap these days, and with the consistently quirky and energetic tracks he puts out on a regular basis, it’s hard to disagree with anything he decides to make. One would never consider putting a Trap beat over a crazy breakbeat classic like ‘Smack My Bitch Up’, but Major Lazer (now comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire) does it flawlessly and with as much energy as possible.
The remix begins with sampled clips of the original track, followed by the main riff from the original that we all know and love. All throughout the remix there are tidbits of samples from a wide range of sources, some of them pulled from previous Diplo and Major Lazer work, while others reach as far as Indian classic music. The drop is a full-bodied Trap offering with rapid-fire hi-hats percussion and a booming 808 kick drum hovering over the main riff of the original track. Leave it to Major Lazer to create the most off-kilter beats known to man, and with this remix, they will surely maintain that reputation.
