Right now i’m mad chuffed for East London boy Labrinth aka Labz who’s been on the production grind for a hot minute. At the beginning there may have been some doubters (they know who they are) but he has come thru to absolutely silence those premature critics.
This kid has not only smashed a Number 1 for Tinie Tempah, as well as got mad hits on the horizon for another rising star Bluey Robinson, but Labz has got the solo vision locked down too.
I had the privilege of playing one of his own songs ‘Music Box’ 1st on national radio back in mid 2008 and now i’m blessed with the honour of inviting a future homegrown hero into 1xtra for his very 1st radio interview.
In conversation with Labrinth…Enjoy!

Angie Stone has been recording incredible music for the longest time from the Hip Hop days of Sequence when she was known as Angie B, through the journey of soulful trio Vertical Hold into the solo outings of ‘Black Diamond’, ‘Mahogany Soul’ and ‘Stone Love’.
Well here’s Angie talking about her 5th Studio Album ‘Unexpected’, the transition from major label to independent label ‘Stax’ Records and working with Michael D’angelo Archer.
Real talk with Angie B Stone.
Veteran R&B Diva Toni Braxton makes a strong return with this smooth & sultry R&B joint featuring man of the moment Trey Songs.
T.Bs brand new single ‘Yesterday’ is due for release in the UK May 3rd with the album ‘Pulse’ to follow May 10th.
I could be mistaken but it would seem Ms Braxton is looking to promote a new line in underwear too!
Peep the official new video
Some of today’s biggest recording artists and producers including Usher, Ludacris, Akon, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, T-Pain, Robin Thicke, LL Cool J, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Wyclef Jean, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, Three 6 Mafia, David Banner, BeBe Winans, Jermaine Dupri, and Scott Storch, among others, have joined forces to celebrate the music of multi-Grammy winning producer, composer and arranger Quincy Jones by recording contemporary versions of popular recordings from his massive catalog for a new album from Interscope Records entitled Q: Soul Bossa Nostra. “A family celebration,”
Q has said about the project, “Each of these songs had incredible artists and unique stories from when we originally recorded them. I think that these new interpretations will not only introduce these songs to a whole new generation of music fans, but inspire them to seek out the original recordings and show that these songs really stand the test of time…that’s the ultimate mark of a great tune.”
Watch-out for T-Pain and Robin Thicke (produced by T-Pain) on a re-make of Michael Jacksons’s Grammy nominated classic “P.Y.T.” from Thriller;
Mmmm…should be interesting!
Q: Soul Bossa Nostra will be released May/June, 2010.
