Have you heard of Diplo? He’s this super-cool DJ whose life is a BlackBerry commercial, and he’s had a busy 2012 — producing some of the year’s biggest singles and hangin’ out with Azealia Banks, No Doubt and, well, Kreayshawn — but now he’s got his eye on a big Major Lazer comeback in 2013. The group, which also features Walshy Fire and Jillionaire, is gearing up for the release of Major Lazer Frees the Universe in February, and the first taste of what’s to come premiered earlier today via a video trailer.

A surreal animated clip to set to a sprightly dancehall track, it’s a good teaser of what to expect from their next LP, even if a BlackBerry commercial would have sufficed. Check it up top.
