Perth music production school Lab Six launches record label
Perth-based electronic music and DJ school Lab Six is launching its own record label.
Led by Jeremy Smith, the label officially launched on Saturday July 24 at the Lab Six building in Perth, with the label set to release its debut track on Wednesday July 28.
Lab Six Records will offer distribution services and production workshops for emerging and new artists, and will initially act as a platform for the school’s community to share their musical works with wider audiences.
The label also has intentions of releasing music from the broader Perth music community, placing an emphasis on building a strong local electronic, dance, hip-hop and pop artist roster.
Established in 2013, Lab Six has helped to launch the careers of acts like Reija Lee, Sydnee Carter, White Pepper and TWERL.
Past and present instructors to lecture at the academy include Slumberjack, Boston Switch, Pendulum’s El Hornet and co-founders Zeke Beats and Chang.
Smith said his mission is to build a brand that encourages people to unlock their creative potential.
“From humble beginnings as a DJ school in 2013, Lab Six has incorporated a music production curriculum stream, developed integral partnerships with events and festivals in Perth and had some of the world’s biggest artists through its doors,” Smith added.
“Lab Six Records is the evolution of the Lab Six brand. Over the years our community has grown, fuelling the need to create a platform to showcase their works and empower local artists in Perth.”
