David Taylor, better known by his dance-floor-packing name Switch, comes to Phoenix packing serious credentials. He's worked with M.I.A., Santigold, Christina Aguilera, and Beyoncé, not to mention crafting the dancehall/electro project Major Lazer with Diplo. The production duo's debut, Guns Don't Kill People . . . Lazers Do, indulged their taste for scissor-ready dance pop and, even more impressively, introduced the world to Major Lazer himself, a Jamaican commando sporting a laser cannon for an arm. Illustrated by artist Ferry Gouw, the character is set to be the star of a show on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block, meaning Switch and Diplo may wind up with a Gorillaz-style multimedia empire on their hands. Good on them — but, for now, catch Switch performing solo, dropping some U.K. riddims, this weekend.
