Major Lazer commemorate 2012 with a best-of-the-year mixtape

Grammy nominee Diplo’s stitched together a frenetic mix of the biggest tracks of the last twelve months.

Music aggregator Hype Machine have rooted through their data for the year to determine the most popular tracks on the site in 2012. They subsequently invited Diplo, under his Major Lazer guise, to produce a mix of his favourites from the bunch. M.I.A’s ‘Bad Girls’ , Santigold’s ‘Disparate Youth’ and, of course, TNGHT’s ‘Higher Ground’ all feature. Breezy remixes of Future’s ‘Turn On The Lights’ and Juicy J’s ‘Bandz A Make Her Dance’ also make the cut.

Triumphant Mercury winners Alt-J and mash-up merchants The Hood Internet have also contributed mixes – head over to Hype Machine to see the full set.

Perhaps to make reparations for all that Culture Clash rule-bending, Major Lazer recently launched the Major Lazer Presents… series to promote upcoming global artists.
