It's only symmetrical that Santi White would remix "L.E.S. Artistes" with Diplo. He's been a key M.I.A. collaborator, and she's the first to seriously replicate M.I.A.'s panache. Their mashing up sets off a shower of sparks, as classic house beats joust with soulful singing and indie-kid spirit.
Representing the dirty hipsters of BK, Santogold is like a slightly more pop version of political club-rap queen, M.I.A. Big, warbly basslines stumble drunkenly behind the lead singer's brassy, robot sass--and the end result is music you can rage out and endless drink Pabst to all night long.
