Our Story

Running riddims and connecting communities

The story behind Rhythm Labs has been a long time in the making. Having grown up in one of the most diverse and open-minded cities in the world, we have grown up taking in the various scenes and cultures which surround us as Londoners. We have grown up listening to multiple genres, following their evolution and respecting their history. We look to reflect this in the range of events which we host, whether it be dance, electronic, hip-hop, grime, jazz or world music.

Before embarking on this project, we have vast knowledge and experience of the music industry.  The team has experience working on multi-award-winning festivals & club nights and as well as being senior producers at radio stations.we have an excellent understanding of how to curate the perfect line-up, creating an electrifying atmosphere, and in turn break boundaries through a unique experience. We’re here to connect communities by all dancing under one roof.

Events

We have some of the biggest names gracing our line-ups as they produce the most electrifying sets. We pride ourselves not only on the name but on the music, which leads us to support up-and-coming artists across multiple genres.

We passionately believe that creating a thriving atmosphere takes more than just music. Rhythm Labs focusses on creating an experience through the production value and decor which we bring to every venue we occupy, with each detail being innovative and memorable. We look to fully explore the spaces which live music events can take place in, working with some of the capitals most respected venues and outdoor spaces. We also host events in beautiful, unconventional spaces for live music.

RL Records

We have developed Rhythm Labs records, as an independent record label. We have a diverse musical taste listening to everything from electronic dance to hip-hop & grime. This is something which is going to be reflecting the range of releases on Rhythm Labs Records. At Rhythm Labs we do not discriminate against any genre or scene and are firm believers in promoting all good underground music.

Rhythm Labs Records boasts a diverse roster of international and homegrown talent. We are thrilled to launch with artists spanning across house,break-beat and hip-hop.

We have recently announced our first release on Rhythm Labs Records, RL001 with Graznya Biedron and Provhat Rahman. This project will be coming out on Vinyl via the Rhythm Labs and Lobster Theremin stores, as well as on all major streaming platforms.

Community & Charity work

We pride our selves not only on being music and arts collective but also in taking a genuine interest in social and ethical issues that are not only happening in our area but around the globe. We believe it is critical to give something back to the communities we operate in, as well as the scenes and cultures which have inspired us.

We will be working with a number of charities, including raising money for the Laura Hyde Foundation to provide mental health and wellbeing services for emergency services during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We will be looking to run a number of events in collaboration with charities once the covid restrictions ease, raising money for there causes. In addition, we will also be running community lead workshops and discussion panel events, for people who want to get involved in music but are deprived of the opportunity due to a number of reasons.
