Diplo, Switch and Elly Jackson bring the dancehall heat

Let’s face it, Diplo made his name on the mixtape — first with his Hollertronixxx mixes with Low Budget back in the day, and then his gamechanging Piracy Funds Terrorism mixtape that put M.I.A. on the map back when she couldn’t even read a map. Then there was his superlative mix with Santogold, Top Ranking, so well, you gotta give the guy credit. Which is why his new mix, Lazerproof, has all our ears salivating at The Meadows underground bunker. Ok, this mixtape isn’t just Diplo, it’s Major Lazer — his electro-dancehall collab with Switch, but you get the idea. He has a knack for sniffing out the hottest female in the game, and this time is no different, partnering up with British synthpop outfit La Roux. As indie pop girl du jour, La Roux’s Elly Jackson promises to take her new wave, 80s flavored pop into some dubby, ska-spiced lands. Featuring guest appearances by Gucci Mane, Drake, Gyptian, Rusko and Amanda Blank, you can download the Lazerproof mix starting today at Mad Decent.
