“Make the music with your mouth…” – Biz Markie
While many of us utilized Desks and tabletops to provide the instrumentations for our Dancehall clashes and freestyle Rap sessions at School or on the corner, there are those who possessed the ability to make music with their mouths. Dervin Lee a.k.a. “Mixing Lab” is one of those with that unique ability. Having impressed many near and far with the skill of recreating some of your favourite beats, and creating new ones on the spot through Beatboxing, Mixing Lab decides to take it further with the release of his debut album, “Mini-Stereo“!
Done in collaboration with RoRo Jammings Productions, they dabble in Dancehall, Afrobeat, Reggae, Calypso, Hip Hop, Dubstep, and many other genres on a project that will have your attention from the Artist filled Intro, to the Dubstep/Calypso/Dancehall hybrid on track 10! The album even has something for the Gaming community thanks to a track titled, “Kayo“. Known as “The Beatbox Machine“, Mixing Lab has worked with Alozade, Beenie Man, Bounty Killa, and has showcased his talents at various events over the years. The “Mini-Stereo” album is considered the first of its kind in the Caribbean, and Mixing Lab joins the list of Artists who have studied the art of Beatboxing like Biz Markie, Doug E. Fresh, and Rahzel.
Mixing Lab and RoRo Jammings’ “Mini-Stereo” is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music, Napster, and all other popular Music Streaming platforms. Hear the album first below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
