Although there is probably no need to introduce La Roux as it is hard to forget both the hairdo and voice of Elly Jackson, there might be the necessity to say few words about Major Lazer project. It consists of Diplo and Switch, each one of them being one of the most popular producers of the 21st century – with numerous remixes (for Radiohead, Madonna, Daft Punk, The Streets, Björk, Basement Jaxx and many more) and producing tracks for some notable artists (like M.I.A., Santigold, Beyoncé or No Doubt). In fact, Diplo created one of the most successful tracks of its kind of the last few years – M.I.A.’s hit Paper Planes.
Coming back to the topic – Lazerproof was created in Jamaica and features perfect mix of dancehall vibes and La Roux’s electropop. There are also some interesting guest appearances made by Drake or Amanda Blank.
The song I am presenting – Independent Kill – is a mix of La Roux’s ‘In for the Kill’ and Candi Redd’s ‘Independent Bitches’.
The mixtape is available for free download! You can do it here.
Oh, and there is another thing – we are on facebook! Please follow and share.
