When Diplo isn’t surrounded by a wall of twerking girls, he is the front man of Major Lazer; an ongoing side project that continues to cement itself in the music world by blending electronic and reggae sounds like no one before.
Taking the Major Lazer persona to the next level, the group is being represented by cartoon characters; Major Lazer "himself" being a gun-bearing militarized Jamaican. We’ve seen him and other characters throughout album and single artworks, and we even saw him brought to life in their music video for “Get Free”.
Now, Diplo’s been cooking up something far bigger, a full-on cartoon TV show based around Major Lazer personas. If the show is anything like the music, it surely has promise. Set to broadcast on FXX, the new Fox spin-off network geared toward a more mature audience, (home to programs like Archer, Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League), this pick up demonstrates how far the channel is willing to push boundaries.
Today we have the first sample of the show with the actual intro. The very first episode will air on FXX this Sunday night at 12 am EST.
