Downloads: Major Lazer (Diplo & Switch) w/ La Roux - FREE mixtape on MAD DECENT!

In pic: Lazerproof w/ Major Lazer and La Roux

I promised a Diplo mixed tape and here it is!  He recently put it up on his MAD DECENT website and it's his colloboration called Major Lazer with UK DJ and 'fidget house' pioneer, Switch.  He's also got La Roux on the vocal, so this must be really tasty.  Judging by the tracklisting - it's a bumping blend of reggae dance hall, trip hop, hip hop, electro pop and dub.  Diplo has yet to let me down, he's a true DJ's DJ... so you really must get on this!  This kinda mix you could play at a drunken grimy party.  Support his website - register and leave your details!  There's a zSHARE download link to the mixtape below.

The Major Lazer braintrust (Diplo & Switch) put this mixtape together for La Roux while working on new material in Jamaica. It features a bunch of JA-inspired blends, special remixes, dubplates and more but you don't really need to be sold on this thing - we are giving it to you today for FREE.
Improve your quality of life and jump start your summer by downloading it!

REVIEW: First of all, let me take back the 'drunken grimy party' comment immediately, this is more like chiller doobie music.  Slow grooves, funkadelic flavours, extremely lush vocals (especially the female stuff, the girlies should love this!)... this is for ALL music lovers in my opinion and a MUST LISTEN for reggae dub fans.  Kick back, the summer is here and bob your head to this. Diplo has a tendency to be a bit noisy in a good way, but Major Lazer is mellow... proper after party chill out tunes.  This mix has 'gone in 4 the kill' and delivers in a very big way.
