Grammy Award and Mercury Prize nominated artist M.I.A. aka Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam is ready to bump out a new remix EP titled Internet Connection (The Remixes) courtesy of some exciting knob twiddlers.
What started off as a promising year for the contentious artist ended in a pretty lacklustre 12 months after putting out the not so exciting Maya LP and the recent mixtape Vicki Leekx. Her sound is beginning to get a touch tedious.
However, she is ready to make up for it by putting out her first release of 2011, which will feature four different edits of the MAYA tune "Internet Connection". Remixers include up and coming Finnish producer Houratron who has just released probably one of the most sexually violent over-the-top videos of the last few years, Kuduro-beat group Buraka Som Sistema and Swedish house producer Tony Senghore.
M.I.A. has shown herself to be a true mercenary in the last few years, lending her influential voice to the Sri Lankan crisis.
