In just two years, multi-talented musician Labrinth has experienced an extraordinary career trajectory. As the producer, writer and vocalist behind Tinie Tempah’s massive hits, Pass Out and Frisky, and future hits for Professor Green, JLS and Devlin. This September sees the release of Labrinth’s debut single, Let The Sunshine.
Labrinth’s prodigious talents as a vocalist, writer and musician, and his ability to be a star in his own right was spotted by Simon Cowell who signed Labrinth to his Syco label. As well as an artist deal, Labrinth also has an imprint under the Syco umbrella. ‘Odd Child’ gives Syco a first look at new, underground acts, while offering both Labrinth and Odd Child a multi-media, global platform to help nurture new talent. “Simon has given me a wider landscape to work in and a scope of opportunities that I didn’t have access to before,” says Labrinth. “I really trust Syco and believe in how they work; they’re behind me all the way.”
Despite having yet to release a solo single, interest in Labrinth is already exceptionally high. He is one of the most talked about emerging artists in the press, and has won rave reviews for his performances with Tinie at Glastonbury and Wireless. His own website, Labrinth.co.uk, has seen a huge rise in traffic following his Transmissions series, a collection of short films created and edited by the 21 year-old. One of the most promising, exciting and accomplished acts working in the UK music scene, Labrinth has mastered a wide realm of creative entities. “The Transmissions are similar to my music; it’s showing people what I’m about, but showing the abstract side of me. It’s almost like showing the pages of the book before you see the cover.”
