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!

Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010!

For many of us, the 00′s was the decade that many of us made the transition from adolescence to young adults with real life slapping us awake every chance it got. It was also a decade of emotional roller coasters, from the  lows of the election debacle between GWB and Al Gore & the tragedies of 9/11 plus 2 wars that followed (that we are still neck deep in!) to the highs last year in seeing our nation’s first black President getting elected to the almost unanimous cries of “YES WE CAN”!

Politics & world issues aside, music across the spectrum has seen its share of high & low points as well and dance music is no exception. File sharing changed the way we can access music and shook the business models of the music industry to the core. We saw major artists like Radiohead and Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails try their hand at “fair market value” releases, with mixed results (I personally would kill to get all of that demographic and web data to see where the trends & sweet spots lie..).
