Blue Lab Beats have released new EP Vibe Central, the follow-up to their debut album Xover.
Featuring the new single Lipstick with Jodie Abacus and the lead single Hi There, the EP follows their recent nomination for The Digital Award at the Jazz FM Awards. Take a listen to Lipstick:
The new EP pushes the Blue Lab Beats sound into new territories but retains what made their Xover album so special. Their passion for melding analogue and digital sounds reaches new heights, and they’re also freshly inspired by their global adventures, from Rabat to Milan to Texas and back home in London.
The duo – NK-OK and Mr DM – have worked with acclaimed trumpeter Theo Croker on the track Vibe Tribe and Jodie Abacus on their new single Lipstick.
Still only aged 20 (NK-OK) and 25 (Mr DM) – a big moment in their career came when their Jazz FM live session went viral with over 500,000 views.
