M.I.A.'s sample jump-offs

The always-crucial Palms Out Sounds turns its crate-digging attention toward M.I.A. in today's Sample Wednesday. Maya hit up some pretty un-obscure songs for Kala—if you can't ID "Where Is My Mind" you might want to think about starting your record collection over from scratch—so this isn't one of the more extensive installments, but the couple of deep cuts in the mix are absolutely worth a download. Deise Tigrona's "Injeção"—which provides the foundation to "Bucky Done Gun"—is a slab of ur-baile funk. And the Bollywood disco stylings of Bappi Lahiri's "Jimmy-Jimmy Aaja," well, I mean it's Bollywood disco, which is simply one of the best phrases in the history of popular music.
