Blue Lab Beats’ new project “We Will Rise” coming in June 2021

Following their appearance on 2020’s acclaimed Blue Note Re: imagined project, the London duo Blue Lab Beats—producer NK-OK and multi-instrumentalist Mr. DM—present their first musical offering of 2021 with the EP We Will Rise and the irrepressible single “Blow You Away (Delilah)” featuring Ghetto Boy. The five-track EP—which also features Braxton CookKojey Radical, Alex Blake, and DTsoul—is a project from the heart, intended to offer healing and hope to those wearied by racism and prejudice.

Blue Lab Beats, WE WILL RISE

It’s music that variously celebrates resilience, provides reassurance, and sparks joy. Pulsing through a sound that blends boom-bap grooves and jazz-funk hooks are wide-ranging influences inspired by the pioneers of hip-hop and the music of the African diaspora; a sound that tells of London, of today, while hinting at the future.
