M.I.A. – “Gold”
Dutch DJ duo the Partysquad contributed production to M.I.A.’s Matangi, and now they’ve aligned again for a song on The Partysquad Summer Mixtape 2014. It’s a typically noisy M.I.A. track that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on Kala, with a beat that remains spacious despite busy drum programming and various agitated blasts of sound. It almost reminds me of “Turn Down For What,” though the recent radio hit Maya interpolates here is Sage The Gemini’s “Gas Pedal.” Get into it below.
The Partysquad Summer Mixtape 2014 also includes Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” Kanye West’s “Bound 2,” and M.I.A.’s “Double Bubble Trouble.”
