Hot from a studio in Jamaica, Major Lazer (AKA the multi-talented Diplo and Switch) have produced a new mixtape, in conjunction with La Roux. Released last weel, it brings La Roux’s blend of angular, ‘80s inspired electro and merges it with the sweat of Major Lazer’s dirty, dancehall rhythms.With contributions from Drake, Rusko and Gucci Mane to name just a few, it’s the sound of the summer. The best part? Mad Decent are giving it away for free and you can download it here.
