Major Lazer + La Roux: Lazerpoof

This is one of those things where you wonder if it originated when someone came up with the name as a joke.

Luckily, it’s a pretty good joke, and the music’s not bad, either. In the fine tradition of other Mad Decent mixtapes featuring groundbreaking female artists remixed with world and dub inspired beats (Remember M.I.A.’s Piracy Funds Terrorism mixtape, or Santogold’s A Diplo Dub? No? Good grief, music moves fast!), Major Lazer gives tracks from La Roux’s debut LP a makeover with, well, world and dub inspired beats – plus guests!

While not as mindblowing as those other two mixtapes I mentioned, it is nonetheless a great summer listen. One of the best bits is hearing Amanda Blank back in raw form after her somewhat restrained full length release. Is this a new vocal from her, or was it taken from an older track, I wonder?

Whatever. Download it here, for FREE, unless you’re crazy or hate fun or something.
