We have a Major Lazer prize pack to give away to a randomly selected LAEM subscriber featuring a Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do t-shirt, vinyl and CD. To be in the running, simply be a subscriber and tell us why you want it.
So who is Major Lazer? He is a Jamaican commando who lost his arm in the secret Zombie War of 1984. Diplo and Switch produced his first LP.

Major Lazer also have a cool iPhone app, too:

iDrum: Major Lazer lets you instantly remix elements from the new album, Guns Don’t Kill People … Lazers Do, produced by dancefloor innovators Diplo and Switch along with lazer-armed commando Major Lazer. With a huge arsenal of dancehall drums, laser blasts, instrument hits, sound effects and vocal samples, iDrum: Major Lazer is the ultimate zombie-fighting accessory. Take control and re-arrange rhythms, drums, effects and more from songs on the album. Or use the raw drums, effects and instrument sounds to make your own musical creations. iDrum’s simple interface lets you build beats layer by layer by tapping the touch screen. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never made a beat before, with iDrum, you can create music with simple shapes and color combinations that let you visualize the rhythm.
