Major Lazer Mixtape – Essential Mix 2009

You all know probably know about Major Lazer by now so no need for a long intro on them. Diplo and Switch got together to record a truely schizophrenic mix for Radio 1’s Essential Mix on Saturday. Taking an hour each Diplo starts things off with a few Dub and Raggae jams, before quickly descending into full Baltimore club territory. It’s a good half an hour before we hear any Major Lazer’s own work, but the mix builds nicely to all out club bangers with Switch taking over and keeping the tempo bouncing for the final hour. There’s a few curve balls thrown in their to keep things slightly tongue in cheek in the form of Wamdue Project, Black Eyed Peas and Ace of Base. Overall it’s probably one of the most eccentric Essential Mixes you are likely to hear and it definately sounds like Diplo and Switch are revelling in not taking things to seriously.
