Hot on the heels of revealing details of their forthcoming second album Free The Universe Major Lazer will be hitting our shores this weekend to play Notting Hill Carnival… creating a carnival in their own right as they’re joined by Rodigan, Hudson Mohawke, Lil Silva and more.

To celebrate they’ve revealed the SoMe directed video for Get Free featuring the Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman.

Since its inception in 2009, the one-armed cartoon Jamaican renegade know as Major Lazer (fronted by Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Diplo) has become a cultural zeitgeist- from being sampled by Beyonce for her mega-smash hit Run The World (Girls), selling out shows and playing festivals across the world and leading the way in the current dancehall revival movement and producing the upcoming Snoop Dogg album, Major Lazer’s world takeover since the release of GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE…LAZERS DO is undeniable.

The highly anticipated second full-length installment of the Major Lazer saga, Free The Universe is set to be released November 5 2012 on Mad Decent / Downtown.
