BLUE LAB BEATS (UK soul and jazz duo, NK-OK and Mr D.M) are not every one’s cup of soul tea but since they started recording a year or two back they’ve steadily won friends and picked up plaudits and enjoyed plenty or airplay on the more adventurous radio stations.

The boys are just putting the finishing touches to their album (‘Xover’) –due for Spring 2018 release but in the meantime they’re now promoting a new single – ‘Pineapple’ c/w ‘Dome’. Hard to define their special sound – jazzy, hip-hoppish, electro, soulful, quirky, eclectic and catchy –and a lot more.

‘Pineapple’ with Moses Boyd & Nérija is a crazy instrumental with an irresistible shifting rhythm while ‘Dome’ which features Othasoul & Daniel Taylor mines a hip-hop, groove but both have an ethereal quality about ’em… different for sure!
