Universal Playground’s album of the week 06 – 2021 is Blue Lab Beats – Voyage

Kwaten and Mrakpor first met at WAC Arts when Namali was thirteen and David eighteen where they developed their eclectic range and understanding of jazz arrangement. What began as a sharing of ideas and jamming in NK-OK’s blue bedroom became a ritualistic musical journey. BLB are a jazztronica duo from London aged 22 and 27. Their influences include jazz, hip-hop, soul, funk, R&B and others. Mix it all up and out comes the sound of Blue Lab Beats! In 2020 they signed to the legendary label Blue Note Records.
