LAB-trio & The Laura Jurd 4tet (UK)
LABtrio mixes the different personalities of three young, adventurous musicians. Their music is uplifting, refreshing and in constant evolution. Apart from mixing underground jazz influences with hiphop, electronics and underground styles in their own compositions, the ensemble also performs fresh new versions of jazz standards.
“Labtrio (Lander – Anneleen – Bram) is an extremely talented jazzband that easily mixes classical influences with their own modern flair” – TumultFM
LABtrio was founded in 2007 and has followed a remarkable path into the music scene ever since. As these Belgian musicians are growing individually and getting more experienced, the interaction has evolved into a very unique and established trio-sound. LABtrio creates a musical laboratory where influences of jazz, improvisation, and electronic music are mixed. Over the last six years they have created a rich repertoire, mainly consisting of own compositions. With that urban-influenced jazz, flirting with underground cultures, LABtrio tries incessantly to surprise themselves, each other and the audience.
Their first album “Fluxus” was released in 2013 (Outhere records) is widely regarded as one of the best releases of 2013.
