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.
