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:
