About the Artist

Tapes Zip & All that shit + Wax selecta

“I just do what comes , i don’t limit myself when i’m in front of the mpc, just put the power on and fiddle shit with it.”

The words of Lyon based artist LB aka LABAT, a producer on the rise and a young man who’s already caught the ear of MCDE. With a devotion to jazz and hip-hop it’s no surprise that both genres heavily influence his own work, but House music? Well, that’s more a means to an end.
“First and foremost I love to DJ. I’ve discovered how much I love that feeling of sharing my music and whats the point of a live show if it doesn’t make your hips shake? That’s why I produce house music.”
2014 was the breakthrough year, when his track ‘More Kindyness’ was included on the ‘Le Sampler Des Copains’ vinyl release on Face Records. Since then his soulful, groove-heavy productions have impressed and lead to the current 2016 pinnacle of ‘Disques Solaires’, his debut album release on Groovedge Records.
He also made his debut on Robsoul imprint with the first chapter of ‘Swing du Ghetto’, an impressive five track selection that sashays through styles and sound to present a perfect picture of LB aka LABAT. House, Soul and Hip-Hop feed our soundtrack, powered by a sublime sample selection.
