MIXTAPE MADNESS!! Major Lazer vs. La Roux- LAZERPROOF!!!

Jamaica- The excitement has been building over the last few days since Pitchfork.com announced that there was a new Mad Decent project about to drop & apparently Diplo & Switch didn’t do much vacationing while down in Yard working on the latest Major Lazer LP that will be coming out later this year. Instead, they not only worked on their own projects, but teamed up with La Roux, the British electro-pop duo led by Elly Jackson, Gucci Mane, Drake, Gyptian, Rusko, and Amanda Blank (though the Drake and Gucci verses aren’t new) and whipped up “LAZERPROOF”.

If you caught any of the earlier mixes, such as the Santogold vs. Diplo “Top Ranking” or M.I.A. vs Diplo “Piracy Funds Terrorism Vol. 1″, then you already know that this one is nothing short of the pure dance floor madness you’ve come to know the Mad Decent camp for!

DJ R.A.W. aka 6Blocc to be honored in LA (06.05)

Los Angeles- There are some people out there that simply aren’t afraid to put their heads down and put in the work needed to really establish yourself as part of the fabric of the society that we live in and DJ R.A.W. aka B-Boy 3000 aka 6Blocc (or simply Raul to those of us that know him..) is one of those people.

From the early days of the rave scene here in the US to present day touring around the world dropping bass heavy bombs on throngs of listeners that come to see him throw it down as only he can, R.A.W. is one of the hardest working guys in the business.

On June 5th, 2010, a collective of DJs, MCs, artists of all flavors and a ton of people that both know and love R.A.W. for the work he’s put in over the years, are gathering at The Airliner to honor all of his contributions including helping secure L.A.’s position as one of the top electronic music scenes in America and the world!
