If you haven’t heard of Major Lazer, you probably check them out.
The real-life Major Lazer is made up of the duo of DJs and producers Diplo and Switch, who work together to create music that sort of twists and turns between reggae, hip-hop, and dancehall. Their 2009 album, Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do, was met with overall favorable reviews, and the follow-up EP, Lazers Never Die was released shortly after. There’s another album in the works, too.
The not-so-real-life Major Lazer, however, is, as this Buzznet article puts it, “a one-armed Jamaican ex-commando and nightclub owner who battles the forces of darkness while making reggae-tinged booty-shaking jams”. And, now, he’s heading to Adult Swim.
There are character designs to look at over at Buzznet. Included are designs for Major Lazer himself, Skerrit Bwoy (who you can see on stage at pretty much every Major Lazer show and/or DJ set going absolutely insane throughout the whole thing), and influential reggae and dub artist Lee “Scratch” Perry. Go take a look! And get ready for this one! No dates or any info on when it’ll air yet, but it should be a blast.
