'What the f-ck is this??' you may be asking...
"The ubiquitous electro-dancehall duo Major Lazer has partnered with English synthpop outfit La Roux to create Lazerproof, a mixtape to be released for free on Wednesday, May 26th from Mad Decent!
On their self-titled debut from Cherrytree / Interscope, La Roux front-woman Elly Jackson channels her new wave and pop influences and projects them onto a backdrop of intricate electronic musings co-produced by Ben Langmaid. Major Lazer's brain-trust (Diplo and Switch), partner with them to bring the newest mixtape that was put together while on a recent trip to Jamaica.
Lazerproof plays on both groups' styles and the result is a project that is only vaguely recognizable as the sum of its parts- ska, dubstep, hip-hop and pop stars aligning to create a synth-Britania meets dubstep dancehall gem. Guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Drake, Gyptian, Rusko and Amanda Blank add the infamous Mad Decent touch."
