Major Lazer is a fictional cartoon character, who (according to press releases) fought as a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in a secret zombie war in 1984. He fights vampires and various monsters, parties hard, and has a rocket-powered hoverboard.

Made up of DJs Diplo and Switch, the two were introduced after working with M.I.A.. The duo’s first album, Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do was released on June 16, 2009 on Downtown Records. It was recorded in Jamaica at Tuff Gong Studios.Vocalists such as Santigold, Vybz Kartel, Ward 21, Busy Signal, Nina Sky, Amanda Blank, Mr. Vegas, Turbulence, Mapei, T.O.K, Prince Zimboo, Leftside and others contribute guest vocals to the album, as well as additional production from Afro Jack and Crookers. This is the first release to come out of the label partnership between Downtown Records and Diplo’s label Mad Decent. Major Lazer ended a US tour last summer. The album’s first single was “Hold the Line”, the video for which, directed by Ferry Gouw, was nominated for a MTV Video Award in the Breakthrough Video category. The track “Zumbi” has a music video that features comedian Andy Milonakis.Music videos for the songs “Pon de Floor” and “Keep It Going Louder” were both directed by Eric Wareheim.
