In celebration of Diwali, the Indian festival of lights, Major Lazer shared thier ‘Diwali Edition’ of their hit “Cold Water” featuring Justin Bieber and MØ.

The new remix features the talents of Indian composer and producer Anirudh Ravichander, who is recognized for his work on viral film track “Why This Kolaveri Di”.

Ravichander takes a graceful approach on his Diwali remix of “Cold Water,” incorporating tabla percussion rhythms and alluring flute sounds over Bieber’s vocals.

“Diplo is one of the most talented producers I have met. We together are working on some awesome music, the first of which is the remix of his popular track ‘Coldwater’ with an Indian twist,” Ravichander, said in a press statement. “This will be followed by a slew of original tracks that we are currently working on,” he continued.

In related news, Diplo teased an unreleased song featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR on his Snapchat over the weekend. When a fan asked about it, he broke news on Twitter saying: “New major lazer comes out in January.”
