For the love of all that is Proyecto Uno, Santo Domingo-based producer Freaky Philip (a.k.a. Philip Romero) has put his own meren-trap (trap-engue?) flip on Major Lazer’s “Too Original,” connecting the Caribbean islas’ proximity in remix form. The result is a relentless party song that keeps the bass-heavy drops and adds Dominican merengue horns for good measure, offering Major Lazer fans some new dance moves.
