Electro-dancehall duo Major Lazer has partnered with English synthpop outfit La Roux for the creation of Lazerproof, a mixtape both acts will release for free on Wednesday (May 26) from Mad Decent. On their self-titled debut, 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 it’s parts ska, dubstep, hip-hop and pop stars aligning to create a synth-Britania meets dubstep dancehall gem. The 14-track tape boasts guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Drake, Gyptian, Rusko and Amanda Blank add the infamous Mad Decent touch.

Lorn – Nothing Else

Lorn’s style is mad creepy. His debut full length album is epic, melancholic and brutal, it’s a record which the listener has to be prepared to immerse themselves in. The rewards make it worth the effort. From the fairground dramatics of “None An Island” through the soundtrack sweep and military momentum of “Army of Fear,” the discombobulated atmospherics of “Bretagne,” the sheer brute force of the bass on “Automaton,” the acid-fried detailing on “Voids” 1 and 2, the woozy migraine-simulacra of “Tomorrow,” the off-centre melodic catchiness of “Glass & Silver” and “Cherry Moon,” the deconstructed electro of “Greatest Silence” and on to the utterly uncompromsing conclusion of “What’s The Use,” where an underwater hip hop break smashes up against Hammond and the ghost of a human voice, this is a record which feels like its been hewn from stone. Albeit electronic stone. Real deep, real dark. Some of the synths in these tracks just cut so hard you feel like it’s sawing you in half.

A remarkable, transcendent achievement, no one who knows anything about him is going to claim that Lorn’s life has been easy and nor his his music. Instead it’s raw, emtional, angry, beautiful and real.

Kitsuné vs PonyStep Compilation

Rays of sunshine finally kick in as the always ebullient Kitsuné teams up with London’s Ponystep for a summer mix CD ‘très mode.’ On one hand, Kitsuné, the record label extraordinaire that gave you Digitalism, La Roux and Two Door Cinema Club, is also a fashion label. Sure its ever colorful Maison compilations – almost ten of them now – have become the reference in everything that’s new and quirky in the world of pop, breaking today many of tomorrow’s important artists. It’s also an elegant – young and modern – clothing line based on quality that keeps on expanding and is soon turning into a bit of a phenomena in Japan.

On the other, Ponystep, the noted fashion-style webmag based in east London has built a global reputation for all things fashion, art and music. It also happens to throw some of the best parties around. No wonder, the man behind Ponystep is Richard Mortimer infamous for his BoomBox night, which rocked the British capital and shook fashion circles the world over. BoomBox’s sense of freedom and electro/pop party brought a breath of fresh air to clubland and attracted celebrities (Björk, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Jeremy Scott…) along with London’s fashion elite (Giles Deacon, Gareth Pugh, Henry Holland, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab…).

After Kitsuné released the BoomBox cd in 2007, an iconic snapshot of what was possibly the wildest club in the world at the time, the pairing is once more in full effect with Jerry Bouthier in the dj seat again. Bridging the Channel gap effortlessly, the Parisian relocated in London is Mortimer’s long-time musical collaborator-resident dj and also part of the Kitsuné family since early days. Sealing a vibrant appreciation based on mutual respect, Kitsuné-Ponystep – the ultimate fashion CD? – of course aims at mixing London edge to Parisian chic, two highly stylish and defined worlds yet quite apart from each other. Bouthier’s reputation as catwalk dj keeps on growing, notably since he was taken on board at Vivienne Westwood to provide the music to all her shows. He is a regular at the Fashion Weeks, season after season he produces the runway soundtracks of other fashion designers showing in London (Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Illincic, Peter Jensen, Osman…) or Paris (Romain Kremer, JunnJ, Estrella Archs, SongZio).

Fusing pop, electro, indie, disco and more, Kitsuné- Ponystep mixes tracks and remixes from some of the hottest names around (Roisin Murphy, French Horn Rebellion, Booka Shade, Aeroplane, Lindstrom, Munk…); a truly international cast that goes as far as Sydney, Perth, NYC, Oslo, Berlin, Munich, Manchester and inevitably Paris and London. Seventy minutes designed to make you dance…and also, at times, move you. In today’s troubled times, emotion has become fashion’s latest by-word and is certainly an essential ingredient here: plenty of songs, with vocals and people playing instruments such as new Xenomania artist Florrie, Northern Ireland’s finest Two Door Cinema Club, Belgium’s Das Pop, Vienna’s Bunny Lake, Sweden’s Lo-Fi Fnk, David E Sugar… a far cry from the dull thump you often find associated with fashion soundtracks. As such Kitsuné-Ponystep is not just a dj mix, Andrea Gorgerino, Bouthier’s studio side-kick and half of their recording project JBAG (also a versatile dj unit that has remixed Ladyhawke, Kylie, Sparks and SExpress), knows like no other how to apply magic, and a bit of drama, as he does on the shows to enhance the aural experience.

This week’s favourite tunes

Some of our favourite new tunes


Underworld makes drum & bass ?!

Another jaws dropping tune by Underworld! Built on a light and skittering drum & bass rhythm, breezy synths and multi-layered vocals, this is Underworld poppier than we’ve ever heard them. The track is actually a collaboration featuring the writing and production talents of High Contrast which makes this track even more note-worthy. It’s a good tune though. What do you think?



Airship – Algebra

Wow, we’re digging this new band from Manchester! AIRSHIP is interesting. They are to embark on their first, UK headline tour in May, after supporting Editors on the European leg of their tour. The band also supported Frightened Rabbit and Joy Formidable on recent live jaunts. Checkout this fresh single from their “Algebra” EP



Mark Ronson “Circuit Breaker” video

This is from Mark Ronson’s forthcoming “Record Collection” LP. The video teases with some 8-bits beats; the missing link between ’80s gaming soundtrack theater and modern DJ/synth tones, with the requisite Ronson’s backbeat fatness. Check it out below!

Gold Panda is a London based producer making beautifully constructed pieces of electronic music, with a big passion for all things Japanese, having apparently sold a large portion of his huge record collection to pay for a Japanese Diploma.
