Diplo reveals Major Lazer remix of The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’

During Diplo‘s most recent “Corona Sabbath,” the Major Lazer frontman shared an island remix of The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” chart-topper amidst a slew of material from the Peace is the Mission outfit.

The unreleased Major Lazer remix dons the dancehall groove through guttural bass hits alongside the kick. The breakdown gives space for lush pads that fall into distorted melodic horns for a suave, ***y, and slowed-down feel to the faster-paced original.

After traveling the world, Diplo quarantined himself from his children and grandmother. With these new restrictions in place, DJs have been forced to connect and engage with fans solely online, and Diplo is leading the charge with his “Corona Sabbaths,” a back-to-back with Dillon Francis, and he recently announced the final Major Lazer project is completed.
