L.A.B In Dub (by Paolo Baldini DubFiles)

EB 185LP EB 185LP

LP version. L.A.B return with a brand-new remix album L.A.B In Dub. The ten-track album features an array of dubbed-out L.A.B remixes by Italian producer and remixer Paolo Baldini DubFiles. This collection of tracks has been lovingly crafted by Baldini at his Alambic Conspiracy Studio in San Foca, Italy. Each dub has been created live in the studio, with Baldini working live on the stems of each track. These new versions are all created in one take with no overdubs or edits, creating entirely new versions. With the tracks hand-picked from L.A.B's catalog, L.A.B In Dub see's Baldini bring a new light with his dubbed-out versions. Combining a range of L.A.B's eclectic sounds including funk-inspired tune "Fashion Dread" and reggae-pop fan favorite "Why Oh Why", the album sees Baldini bring his signature dub-filtered sound, approaching each track with his analog techniques inspired by Jamaican pioneers King Tubby and Scientist. Following on from multiple number one singles and albums, alongside a growing list of platinum sales and awards across New Zealand and Australia, this is the band's first ever full-length remix album in collaboration with Loop and European dub-focused label Echo Beach.

More on L.A.B: L.A.B's groove blends an eclectic mix of reggae, electronic, blues, funk, and rock -- all combining to create a sound entirely their own. L.A.B made their name on the live stages of Australasia and were recently publicly-voted as Radio New Zealand's Best Live Act. L.A.B have become a mainstay in the NZ Music Charts and on the festival circuit, performing at every major festival across NZ, plus marquee slots at the Byron Bay Bluesfest and WOMADelaide. A summer run of sold-out stadium and greenfield shows from January to April 2022 saw them perform to over 70,000 people in Australia and New Zealand and take out fourth spot in Pollstar's top Australasian acts for 2021/2022. 2021 saw L.A.B win Best Group, Best Album and Best Single at the New Zealand Music Awards, named as the most-played NZ act on NZ radio. After releasing five albums in five years, the band have cemented themselves on the NZ charts, with "In The Air" and "Why Oh Why" both reaching number one and remaining in the charts for over three years. Their accomplishments include all five albums reaching platinum status, alongside ten platinum singles and 13 gold singles. The biggest of these include "Why Oh Why" (three-times-Platinum), "Controller" (six-times-Platinum), and "In The Air" (eight-times-Platinum in NZ and Gold in Australia).
