Jamaica? No, she was remixed of her own accord

1 Jun

Major Lazer mainman Diplo (no longer “with” M.I.A., apparently) has teamed up with Elly Jackson from La Roux (not to be confused with La Rue or even Larousse ) release a free – yes, free – mixtape of a bunch of “JA-inspired blends, special remixes, dubplates and more” .

A digital dancehall twist to the Yazoo-y sound that stomped up the charts?

Personally I wasn’t that averse to a bit of Bulletproof, or In For The Kill… but her voice was a tinge on the weedy side..

Major Lazer (a “hipster dancehall vanity project”, according to the Washington Post)have my utmost respect for their cap-doff to the late lamented Goldie-Looking Chain in their naming of their debut album, and Diplo’s remixes and work with his ex is not to be sniffed at either.

So here’s the link, courtesy of Diplo’s own Mad Decent imprint:
