Perth-based electronic music and DJ school Lab Six is launching their own label.
Led by Jeremy Smith, the label officially launched on Saturday July 24 in the Lab Six building in Perth, and the label is set to release its first track on Wednesday July 28.
Lab Six Records will offer distribution services and production workshops for emerging and new artists, and will initially serve as a platform for the school community to share their musical works with a wider audience.
The label also intends to release music from the wider Perth music community, with an emphasis on building a strong roster of local electronic, dance, hip-hop and pop artists.
Established in 2013, Lab Six has helped launch the careers of artists like Reija Lee, Sydnee Carter, White Pepper and TWERL.
Past and current instructors who will be lecturing at the academy include Slumberjack, Boston Switch, El Hornet de Pendulum, and co-founders Zeke Beats and Chang.
Smith said his mission is to create a brand that encourages people to unleash their creative potential.
“From its humble beginnings as a DJ school in 2013, Lab Six has integrated a music production program, developed integrated partnerships with events and festivals in Perth and hosted some of the world’s greatest artists,” said added Smith.
“Lab Six Records is the evolution of the Lab Six brand. Over the years our community has grown, fueling the need to create a platform to showcase their work and empower local artists in Perth.
