It’s a duo duo! Diplo and Switch a.k.a Major Lazer have teamed up with Eleanor Jackson and Ben Langmaid a.k.a La Roux to produce a sweet conglomeration of their disparate musical stylings.
Lazerproof plays to both groups’ strengths and the result is a mixtape that is only vaguely recognisable as the sum of its parts – ska, dubstep, hip-hop and pop stars aligning to create a synth-Britania meets dubstep dancehall killer.
But wait. More?
There are also guest appearances from longtime Diplo collaborators: Gucci Mane, Drake, Gyptian, Rusko and Amanda Blank. Exciting!
