The always brilliant Boom Selection has put M.I.A. and Diplo’s new collaborative mixtape Piracy Funds Terrorism vol.1 available for download. 21 songs, just under 60 minutes of pure mixtape madness.

The quality of the mixes is top notch as always, a sort of screwed up hybrid of current hip-hop, electro, grime, mash-ups and more, with MIA’s vocal stylings over it all. Pitchfork Media has a review and also rates it the 12th best album of 2004 in its yearly review. And rightly so, as mixes go things don’t get much better than this… As always – get it while it’s hot!

There’s also the latest Radio 1 essential mix from those hard-working Soulwax guys available as a torrent (~170MB ogg, 120 mins). Fantastic stuff.

Oh, and a Happy New Year to all by the way!
