Looks like Elly Jackson, better known to most as La Roux is the next chanteuse in line to work with Diplo on a mixtape. You all hopefully remember and have copies of the aural awesomenss that was Piracy Funds Terrorism Vol. 1 (still waiting for vol. 2 over here) with M.I.A. and of course Top Ranking with Santigold. And how well did things turn out for those ladies afterward eh? Pretty, pretty, pretty good!
I have to be honest, I was pretty slow to embracing La Roux’s debut. I kept wanting it to be Ladyhawke and it wasn’t, but as with most well-crafted pop the album has really grown on me over the past six months.
I haven’t even heard a single track off of this Lazerproof project with Major Lazer, so I’m recommending it totally unheard. But you know what? I think we an all safely agree that a mix of Diplo, Switch and La Roux is bound to be a really, really good thing. Plus it’s thing is a free download, what do you got to lose? I’m hoping this shit gets all electro Chaka Khan on me, guess there is only one way to find out! *click*
I love that bootleg looking Iron Man 2 cover by the way. Check out the tracklist after the jump!
Just a heads up, it looks like Mad Decent’s site is taking their sweet ass time in emailing download links. Be patient I suppose!
