Streetlab Set April Release
Influenced by the music scene of the early 90's, Lamorg and Leary started out remixing classic rock songs, creating tracks that defied the boundaries of music genre and ended up appealing to both rockers and club-goers. Their early remixes caught the attention of BBC Radio1's Annie Nightingale, and in 2002, inspired indie-rock label Kanine Records to solicit the duo to contribute remixes of tracks by Mixel Pixel and Professor Murder. Astralwerks and Invisible Records followed suit, adding Streetlab mixes to their repertoires. The talented duo spent the next few years teaming up with New York DJs and club promoters, remixing tracks for Parisian acts PlayGround and Thieves Like Us, and creating their own versions of songs made famous by everyone from Nine Inch Nails and Hot Chip to Led Zeppelin and Bob Marley.
In early 2008, Streetlab released original material to the public for the first time on its website. The song "NYSound" instantly zeroed in on the eardrums of bloggers and music supervisors and everyone in between. Even if you're not scouring blogs and digging through vinyl crates, there's a good chance you heard Streetlab's "NYSound" and bobbed your head along to the banger as it was featured in HBO's Entourage, CBS' The Eleventh Hour, and on the Apple iPod/iPhone game Tap Tap Revenge 2.
Attention from record labels kept pouring in as Streetlab's remix of indie titans Passion Pit's "Sleephead" and Heartsrevolution's "C.Y.O.A." were picked up by online record label RCRD LBL and IHeartComix, respectively. Streetlab rode the waves of buzz momentum and secured performances alongside the likes of Chairlift, Hot Pink Delorean, and LA Riots.
With a endless list of remixes and a growing collection of original material to their name, Streetlab is gearing up to unleash a whirlwind of new songs with a slew of acclaimed vocalists. Brace yourselves for an album that is bombastic, immersive, and surpassing the parameters of BPM. They're latest single "Rat Racer" is available on iTunes and will be the first single off of the debut full-length album set for release on April 20, 2010. In addition to some March tour dates, the duo will be kicking off 2010 with an in-store performance at the Best Buy in NYC's Union Square. [no details provided]
