La Roux / Jack Beats - I’m Not Your Toy
La Roux, who’s name alludes to and are widely believed to be a solo act, are in actuality an electronic duo hailing from Brixton. After winning the Grammy for best electronic / dance duo in 2011, La Roux went on to work with other prominent London based producers, most notably Skream, Major Lazer (Switch) and Jack Beats to remix their entire self titled debut album. From Skream’s subtle, yet explosive version of In For The Kill to Major Lazer’s remix of the album from front to back with Lazerproof, La Roux showcases their adaptability and ability to be innovative. Despite their collaborative nature on other projects, this track isn’t so much of a blended union of the two distinct sounds, it’s about 20% La Roux, 80% Jack Beats oddly addictive, overwhelming nonsense.
