Andy Samberg’s Lonely Island crew hilariously parodied the EDM industrial complex with the SNL Digital Short “When Will The Bass Drop?” So it’s pleasantly meta to see Samberg guesting on Major Lazer’s new single, “Bass Drop,” a song built around exactly the kind of Transformers/modem digital bass explosions Samberg and company were lampooning. The track arrives with an animated video by Andrew Chittenden starring the main character from FXX’s new Major Lazer cartoon. (Samberg also lends his voice to the series.) Watch below.
“Bass Drop” does not appear on Major Lazer’s new album Peace Is The Mission, which comes out 6/1 via Mad Decent.
