We came, We’re sore, ‘cause we daggered

For those of you who have never heard about Major Lazer, it’s actually a collaborative project between two DJ/producers, Diplo and Switch. Major Lazer is the animated character that fronts the album ‘Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do’. According to his press release, he fought as a commando in the secret zombie war of 1984, where he lost his arm, and replaced it with a frickin’ huge lazer cannon. Cool, I know. He fights zombies and various monsters, parties hard and has that height of future technology, a rocket powered hover board. So, pretty much my life then.

Aside from this great B-movie story the ‘Guns Don’t Kill People…’ album is worth a purchase. Catchy songs, ranging for your classic reggae tracks to hard dub inspired synth-dance. Anyways I love it, here’s some videos for you to snack on - some of which are directed by Eric Wareheim of ‘Tim and Eric: Awesome Show, Great Job!’ fame… trippy.

Major Lazer MySpace Music Videos

I was lucky enough to catch Major Lazer @ Digital in Brighton on a very messy Thursday night. Even though the big man himself didn’t make a ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ style entrance, they’re a great live act. Check ‘em out on the tinterweb if you need convincing, I’m still too hungover from Brighton to explain. It’s that good.

Couple of links to remixes of the great ‘pon de floor’ and the new single ‘Keep it going louder’
