Tropical beat ambassador M.I.A. has curated an eight-minute mix for fashion house Kenzo – whose recent deliverance in pattern-work and hues fits right in with the artist’s own visual style. Hence, this dispatch is all the more gratifying, as the British artisan leads us through the sonic wildness via gunshot samples, Middle Eastern vocal layering and sets of ecstatic bass-infused drum rolls.

Check out the mix below and let us know what you think.
