After a night of champagne toasts and party-hopping for New Years' Eve, what better way to christen the year than to keep the party going? On "Fi Di Gal Dem," producer, DJ and one-third of the Major Lazer trio, Jillionaire, does just that. Co-produced with Sweden's Phat Deuce, this hyper-ragga track trots all over the globe, mixing the best of international influences along the way. "I've always been a big fan of Phat Deuce's productions that mix pounding big room kicks and crazy synths with a distinctly tropical vibe," Jillionaire shared with The FADER. "We linked up in Stockholm on my first trip over there a few years ago and have kept in touch ever since." With guest vocals from Jamaica's Mr. Lexx, and calling in Stockholm's Salvatore Ganacci to mix and master the final cut, Jillionaire has cooked up a jam that's sure to be at home in the dancehalls of Kingston and the raves of Scandinavia. Stream "Fi Di Gal Dem," out on Jillionaire's label Feel Up Records, below.
