As EDM's eastward expansion continues, Diplo announces that Major Lazer's hit track "Cold Water" will get a special re-work with the help of Indian composer Anirudh Ravichander

God bless globalization. Diplo, one-third of EDM outfit, Major Lazer, announced the trio’s latest hit, “Cold Water”, will receive an Indian revamp.

Thomas Wesley Penze tweeted the remix comes in honor of the Festival of Lights Day in Diwali. He also revealed that Indian composer, Anirudh Ravichander, will contribute to the track’s upcoming makeover.

A sensation in his native India, Ravichander already holds a number of album credits, alongside a list of collaborators ranging from Penze to composer, A.R. Rahman. Ravichander’s recent signing with Sony Music India indicates a star primed and ready for global stardom. A Major Lazer track is the perfect segue, and Ravichander has high hopes for their partnership.

“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 statement.
