Music Video: Major Lazer & DJ Maphorisa – Particula (ft. Nasty C, Ice Prince, Patoranking & Jidenna)

Major Lazer’s obsession with music from the continent only seems to be growing. Following a continent-wide tour earlier this year and collaborations with some of the biggest names in afrobeats, the production trio returns with the music video for their afrobeats and dancehall-inspired single, “Particula.”

They enlisted bevy of buzzing African artists for the track, including South African artists Nasty C and DJ Mariphosa as well as Nigerian stars Ice Prince, Jidenna, and Patoranking.

Shot in Johannesburg, the 70s-inspired video sees the artists head to an exceptionally groovy party filled with vibrant gqom, pantsula and Fela-inspired dancers. The retro-tinged visual transports viewers to the funkier days, when disco and bell-bottoms ruled.

Video was directed by Adriaan Louw. Watch the video below:
