Music to Dagger to: Major Lazer and La Roux Team Up for Free Mixtape
Earlier this week, a couple of smarty-pants scientists decided to make a bacterial genome from a smaller DNA subunit and then transplant the whole shebang into another cell, thereby making the first synthetic cell ever. Yaaaawn. BOR-to-the-ing. Ugh, get a life eggheads, I'm snoozing like whoa over here! Anyway, tomorrow something way more exciting than sexy replicants (which is obviously what those total nerds were aiming to do) creation is going down via the nice gents of Mad Decent. Major Lazer, the L.A.-based spazzy-dub duo and the gem of the Mad Decent crew, is offering up a new free mixtape spawned from some sonic cellular transplantation with La Roux. Just give 'em an e-mail tomorrow and they'll send you the jams. The Kuato-like mutant mixtape Lazerproof features Gucci Mane, Drake, Gyptian, Rusko and Amanda Blank, all wrapped up like a musical Moses swaddled in the sounds of producers Diplo and Switch.
After the jump, we have a picture of Diplo and Switch (probably) going to church, the full set list, and, because you've been good, all the "daggering" videos we can find (in 5 minutes of Googleboting).
