Major Lazer ft. Flux Pavilion – ‘Jah No Partial’
Brilliant if you get angry on pills; bad if you just want to cuddleMore on Various Artists
On which reggae legend Johnny Osbourne’s ‘Mr Marshall’ is sampled and then battered to death with a bassy sledgehammer. The subtlety you may have enjoyed in previous Major Lazer single ‘Get Free’ has been crushed like a lightbulb under the jackboot of a soldier. Brilliant if you get angry on pills; bad if you just want to cuddle.
