Blue Lab Beats will release their second album Voyage on 18th October via All Points/Blue Adventure.
Available to pre-order now, the album if the follow-up to their debut Xover. It showcases the contemporary London scene and jazz’s rich heritage and is described as ‘an exploratory expedition through the sonic spectrum’.
“We have been making this album for one and a half years and we just wanted to explore and push sonically even more than on our First album X-Over explains NK-OK. “We also wanted many more old synthesisers too! We did not want the songs to have to fit into 3 minutes. This album is sonic experimentation all the way. It saw Mr DM grow as a multi instrumentalist and I know I grew up too as a music producer, the title Voyage says it all.”
The latest single from the album is Stand Up, which features Kaidi Akinnibi, Sheila Maurice-Grey and Richie Garrison. The song is experimental and immediately accessible and can be heard above.
Blue Lab Beats will celebrate the release of Voyage with a London headline show at Omeara on 8th November.
