New Single - Dead Pan

About Us

Festival favourites LABJACD are about to drop their 4th studio offering. The epic first single "Dead Pan" launched on 18th November at the Night Cat followed by "Ethnical Dilemma" the exciting new EP that has been 2 years in the making to be launched in the coming months.

Since taking a break in 2012 to pursue other projects such as Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, Bombay Royale, Quarter Street and the Hope Street record label, the LABJACD sound has evolved organically with the influence of some new members from The Red Eyes, San Lazaro and The Twelve Tone Diamonds. Their new record takes a jazzier direction while maintaining their original hip-hop and Latin roots sound. The end result is music that slays any dance floor with infectious grooves that will free your mind and loosen your feet. 

Live bands don’t get much tighter than this.
