Awhile back, we mentioned the impending release of Diplo’s new Major Lazer EP, and how excited we were about who he was working with on it. One of his collaborators was Thom Yorke of Radiohead, a man who probably doesn’t need much of an introduction. The EP, called Lazers Never Die was released last Tuesday, July 20th. You can stream the whole album on Diplo’s MySpace page. You have plenty of summertime left to enjoy it while firing up a barbecue and sipping on a cold one, which is exactly the sort of environment you want to enjoy this in. Or why not just jump start your Monday with Thom Yorke’s remix of “Jump Up.” Believe it or not, the Radiohead front man goes reggaeton. I wonder if we’ll see him daggering at their next gig?
And if you’re still wanting to hear more from Diplo, there’s also a mix called Chasing the Dragon that he made for the Pomp&Clout Mix Series, featuring funky soul tracks for some laidback summer listening. Finally, you won’t want to miss Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Parties, taking place across four different cities this summer.
