M.I.A. Releases Remix EP

12 Jan

Recently, MIA released Vicki Leekx EP. Two weeks later, Maya’s got another semi-surprise release in tow, this time a remix EP, Internet Connection (The Remixes)

The EP, which is available digitally from Interscope, contains new takes on the glitchy club banger from Flux Pavilion, Buraka Som Sistema, Huoratron and Tony Senghore. M.I.A. has always been adept at mashing together whatever strands of dance music and hip-hop are popular at a given time and this is yet another effort that proves her impeccable taste-making abilities. Our favorite is the Huoratron remix that somehow references The Go-Gos, dubstep and white noise, while remaining based around an overly compressed Ed Banger-style crunch.

The ‘Internet Connection’ EP was a total surprise, too. With no announcement, press or fanfare, the digital download appeared on the Interscope website. Check out the aforementioned remix below or just grab the whole thing by heading over here and clicking on your favorite digital retailer. Check out the tracklist below.
