Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff Crash and Burn with ‘Get Lit’

No Comments

trong>Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff whose collaborations include 90’s hip hop hits ‘Summertime‘ and ‘Girls Ain’t Nothin But Trouble‘ have returned with an EDM track. The duo came together this past Sunday to debut their newest song ‘Get Lit‘.

The performance of ‘Get Lit’ took place in England at Blackpool’s Livewire Festival, but it failed to light any enthusiasm amongst EDM fans. Unfortunately, its unappealing musical structure, boring lyrics, and screeching synths paired with Smith’s lackluster performance failed to deliver.

Musical analysis aside the song had a positive message behind it as Will Smith stated:

I wanted to make a song that allowed people to let their light shine. We all have an inner light and sometimes… people can say stuff to you and tell you you can’t. You know you can, but when they tell you that, it knocks you down a bit. I wanted to make a record that reminded each and every one of you to let your light shine.

This was Smith’s and DJ Jazzy Jeff’s first collaboration since their 1998 song ‘Lovely Daze‘. Although for Will Smith, it has been 12 years since his last musical release. In 2005 he released his fourth studio album LP Lost and Found.

Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff’s musical comeback had been planned for a while. In 2015 they announced a return to music and attempted to go on tour last year which never happened. Smith also told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe that he has over 30 newly recorded songs which he plans on slowly releasing. From the impression that ‘Get Lit’ made let’s hope the rest of his music has a different sound. We’ll suggest you take a listen and watch a video of the performance below.

Check out our in depth Tomorrowland 2017 Reviews for Weekends 1 and 2.

Vini Vici & Armin – Great Spirit

This track was literally everywhere at Tomorrowland in one way or another. Quite an accomplishment to get a psytrance track into the most played of the festival.

Vini Vici x W&W – Chakra

This one was being dropped all over the place for months before it even had a name. W&W brought out Vini Vici during their Weekend 2 Main Stage set to make this track and its title official. It’s gonna rule the circuit for quite some time.

DOD – Sixes

David Guetta, Martin Garrix & Ellie Goulding Teamed Up – Magic Ignites at Tomorrowland

No Comments

The future bass track incorporates wonderful guitar and electronic melodies that mesh beautifully with Ellie Goulding and James Arthur’s stunning vocals. The talented DJs did not disappoint with their infectious beats and vibes that they showcased at the festival this past weekend.

The crowd seemed to sincerely adore their new release as they danced the night away in a perfect unison. Garrix and Guetta vibed off of each other with pure happiness as they danced and sang on stage – this definitely reflected on the audience’s overall joy in that given moment.

The general feedback has been quite outstanding notably for the fantastic vocals featured on this piece. Although some may feel as though this new song has some similarities to some of the scene’s future bass/pop hits, there is no doubt that this track will be a great success. We look forward to hearing remixes and your feedback.
