Friday 17th

Blue Lab Beats & The Electrio

Blue Lab Beats is the brainchild of NK-OK and Mr DM – the pair form the engine room behind many of the freshest new acts including Age Of Luna , Ruby Francis and Louis VI and have served as remixers for Jodie Abacus, Dua Lipa, Rag’n’Bone man to name just a few. London’s booming young jazz, hip-hop and neo-soul-steeped underground, jazz hip-hop duo Blue Lab Beats are making serious waves on the London scene.

 

Their recent Blue Skies EP intro video caught the attention of Dazed and Confused magazine and has been clocking up views ever since it was posted. The duo’s sound is informed by influences as diverse and respected as Mad Lib, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Knxwledge, J Dilla, Milt Jackson, Ahmad Jamal, Oscar Peterson and A Tribe Called Quest.

 

Fascinatingly, NK-OK’s production journey started with grime. He learnt to programme at age 12 against a background of UK grime – Kano, Ghetts, Wiley and Wretch 32 all played a huge part in his musical upbringing. It’s the mish-mash of Mr DM’s instrumental wizardry and a whole lotta bottom end courtesy of NK-OK that furnished Blue Lab Beats with their unmistakable musical edge.

 

The ElecTrio has been making major waves on the impro-jazz/funk circuit since 2012.  Featuring former Morcheeba keyboardist Dan ‘JD73’ Goldman on Rhodes and synths, Hamlet Luton on bass and Gordon Kilroy on drums, this progressive trio plays adventurous and hard-hitting original compositions influenced by esteemed Rhodes players/artists including Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters, Bob James, Stevie Wonder, George Duke, Patrice Rushen, Jeff Lorber, and Chick Corea. Expect fiery Rhodes piano solos, spacey synths, wah-wah clavinet, dirty bass and heavy beats!

 

The ElecTrio have already brought their uniquely firey brand of instrumental jazz-funk to many esteemed venues and festivals including Ronnie Scotts, the Royal Festival Hall (for London Jazz Festival), Jazz re:freshed, Manchester Jazz Festival, and Marsden Jazz Festival and also supported Blue Note artist José James on his 2013 UK tour.
