Combine dirty Basslines with 80?s hip hop breaks and a sprinkle of electro freshness and you get a sound which is undeniably K-lab and undeniably banging! Add some of New Zealand’s freshest Mc talent and you’re laughing like a pack of hyenas on helium.

Ex-Queenstown now Wellington based K-lab is one half of breakthrough live Drum N Bass act Blackplanet. With DNB firmly under his belt he has turned his attention to creating some breakbeat influenced party bass tunes which happen to be extremely fun to shake yo ass to.

K-labs first release Wrecked featuring Analog MC instantly hit number one on download charts and went on to become one of the top downloads of the year across several stores in 2009. Wrecked received remixes from Opiuo (Aus), Evil (NZ), White Papoo (Fr) and Imprintz and Kloe (Fr) and is still ripping up dance floors worldwide.

With the success of Wrecked, K-lab has been keen to get in the studio and rock out a new EP. The Whole World’s Ill is now ready to hit the airwaves. The Whole World’s Ill sees Analog MC returning to the mic to drop the title track, and Camo MC bringing the party vibes on Just music. Grimewarp sets the mood and the dance floor smashing crack house tune Old boy takes things further and funkier – this is definitely not an EP you’d want sit at home and sip on your green tea to.

K-lab promotes block rocking vibes with his high energy DJ sets and funkadelic inspired costumes – dropping his own remixes of old school party jams alongside Glitched out new school bangers. It’s always bound to be a shakedown son of a good time at a K-lab show. Lookout for K-labs crack bass dance crew at selected shows!
