Many of our UK readers will be familiar with newcomer Labrinth. Having taken the British charts by storm with his production efforts on Tinie Tempah‘s smashes ‘Pass Out’ and ‘Frisky’, the 21 year old East Londoner, real name Timothy McKenzie, is striking out on his own as an artist.
Having captured the attention of a certain Simon Cowell, Labrinth signed to the mogul’s Syco label (over at Sony Music) this summer. In the process the eclectic talent became not only the label’s first non-TV-show signing in six years, but also the first to be signed to a lucrative deal which will see him write, produce, and nurture other talent on the label too. Impressive!
Labrinth released his debut single ‘Let The Sun Shine’ today, which looks set to be a hit. Check out its accompanying video below and let us know what you think:
