Major Lazer Discovery

Going through youtube videos I subscribed today to Eric Wareheim’s channel. Besides writing and producing the Tim and Eric Awesome Show (one of my favorite shows currently) he also directs and shoots music videos for indie rock and hip hop musicians. I found a new music video for a group called Major Lazer. It’s the most bizarre music video of Eric’s I’ve seen.

The quick club beat to the song “Keep It Going Louder” is fun and energetic and features pretty vocals by Nina Sky. The group is composed of a duo of DJ’s Diplo and Switch. Their first and only album now is Guns don’t Kill People…Lasers Do. There is also a pseudo mythos behind the album. The character Major Lazer is a Jamaican Commando who lost his arm in a secret zombie war in 1984 and continues to fight vampires and zombies to this day. I only know a little about the duo but they are affiliated with groups like MIA and other bohemian Hip Hop artists.
