Blue Lab Beats is the brainchild of NK-OK and Mr. D.M - The pair are the production engine room behind many of todays freshest new acts - Age Of Luna, Ruby Francis , Louis VI . Their production style is also sort after by many of todays top stars – Blue Lab Beats have become sort after remixers Emelie Sande , Laura Mvula, Dua Lipa and Rag n Bone man to name a few. The production style is raw but sophisticated - musical but not introvert , so understandably their remixes have spawned stream hits into the millions . Their recent Jazz FM performance caught the attention of the music world, clocking up over 500K+ views in just over a month sparking worldwide bookings at Glastonbury Festival , Latitude, Wilderness, Womad ,The Great Escape, Blue Note Jazz Festival Paris , a sold out debut headline show at Ronnies Scotts and a sold out Mau Mau Bar with Jazz Refreshed as well as support slots in Italy Milan/Rome and Belgium with the Jazz legend Mulatu Astatke .
The support from the new wave jazz world has been unprecedented - Jazz FM have had Blue Lab Beats playlisted for an incredible 3 and a half months so far this year.
