In just two years, multi-talented musician Timothy Mc Kenzie aka Labrinth has experienced an extraordinary career trajectory. Following massive chart success as a writer and producer of Tinie Temper’s No.1 single ‘Pass Out’, Labrinth was approached by Simon Cowell‘s record label, Syco. This record deal signing marked a milestone for the label, with Timothy Mc Kenzie becoming the first signing in six years to have not arisen from one of Simon Cowell‘s reality shows. Through Syco, Labrinth released his debut single ‘Let the Sun Shine’ in September 2010.
Labrinth released his debut studio album ‘Electronic Heart’ earlier this year. Two years in the making, the album features guest stints from Tinie Tempah, Emeli Sande, Busta Rhymes, Wretch 32, Devlin and Tinchy Stryder and was largerly produced by himself. The album was preceded by a number of singles including ‘Let The Sun Shine’, ‘Earthquake’ ft. Tinie Tempah which peaked at number two in the UK charts, ‘Last Time’, ‘Treatment’ and a remake of NWA classic hit ‘Express Yourself’.
Born Timothy McKenzie in Hackney in 1989, Labrinth is the youngest son from a family of nine gifted siblings. The young progeny began making beats in his brother’s home studio as a teen, before picking up the lead guitar at the age of 15. Entirely self-taught after studying musicians at his local church, and by listening to songs and “envisioning their mood”, he is a naturally gifted, multi-talented instrumentalist who is as comfortable playing bass, drums and keyboards as he is working a studio desk. “I was actually a rapper first,” Labrinth points out. “I had to make beats for myself because I needed something to compliment the lyrics. But I love every aspect of music and every aspect of making it. It doesn’t matter which category I’m performing or playing, I’m ready for it.”
