"Major Lazer" premieres April 16.
Major Lazer is ready to take its signature bashment-meets-EDM aesthetic from the dancehall to the small screen. Thanks to FXX's new Animation Domination lineup, Diplo?, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire are getting their own animated series, appropriately called Major Lazer.
"It's been almost five years in the making," Diplo tells Billboard, "but it was worth it to have such a succinct TV show for our music fans and cartoon fans alike." The show, which centers on an eponymous superhero in a future, dystopian Jamaica, features the voice of recent Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, as well as guest appearances from Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, Charli XCX, Riff Raff, ?Andy Samberg and Aziz Ansari.
