Labrinth (real name Timothy McKenzie) was born on 21st March 1989 and is from Hackney north east London.
Raised in a highly religious family, Labrinth’ grew up with Gospel music in his blood, however; his meteoric rise to fame in the last two years stemmed from his obsession with producing music at the tender age of 15.
Labrinth studied music theory for four years, learning his craft and it was from this he was introduced to a friend of the family, Marc Williams who allowed him to use his studio and learn about producing music. This was to become the beginning of a very exciting journey for the young prodigé.
After signing a publishing deal with EMI, Labrinth went to on to produce BRIT awarded “Pass Out” (2010) which he helped produce, write and appear in with fellow new rap and grime sensation Tinie Tempah. The single reached number 1 in both UK and R&B Album Chart.
He followed it up with smash hit "Frisky" which was also with Tinie Tempah and become a club sensation across the UK. Labrinth also remixed pop artists Jessie J "Do It Like a Dude" and Gorillaz “Stylo”.
