Ahead of the release of their collaborative album Compass, Mad Decent's Toy Selectah and  Mexican Institute of Sound's Camilo Lara are premiering their new single "Crazy Conscious" featuring Toots Hibbert exclusively on Billboard

"This was a magical moment for us on the recording process of Compass. Toots invented the word 'reggae' and we feel his contribution to pop music is invaluable. We are very proud of the result of our collaboration," Lara tells Billboard.

The infectious reggae tune is featured on the album, which includes collaborations with more than 90 artists from all over the world including Nina Sky, Ceci Bastida, Sly and Robbie and Los Master Plus, among others.

"This album is like our PhD thesis on global music production," Toy Selectah previously told Billboard.

"This project has been a mystical quest trying to prove that there is only one dance floor across the globe," added Lara.

The 13 tracks on Compass include a variety of music genres such as punk, reggae, dance hall and electronica. To record the album, Mexican musicians traveled to countries like Mexico, England, Brazil, Jamaica and the U.S.

"This album is a little like good tequila," says Selectah. "Tequilas come from specific regions and you can taste the difference. Music is similar in that all these artists represent where they come from and their own life experience."
