Diplo likes a good muse. First it was M.I.A. for the Piracy Funds Terrorism, then it was Santogold for Top Ranking. Now he’s set his eyes on Elly Jackson of La Roux to guide his next mixtape.
Lazerproof joins Major Lazer (Diplo and Switch) and La Roux for a collabo that will also feature the likes of Drake, Gucci Mane, Rusko, Amanda Blank and more. Judging by the artwork, it might have some kind of Iron Man 2 theme running throughout, but as the tracklisting reveals, there’s definitely some sort of link to La Roux’s album. According to Pitchfork, Major Lazer put the mixtape together during a trip to Jamaica.
The mixtape will be available as a free download over at Dip’s Mad Decent blog tomorrow.
