Previous Record of the week is the biggest tune about right now! The ground shaking Earthquake by Labrinth ft Tinie Tempah.
Labrinth made his debut appearance on the UK chart in March 2010, when his collaboration with Tinie Tempah, “Pass Out” reached number-one.
His first solo single, entitled “Let the Sun Shine” was released in September 2010 and reached number three.
Now he’s back with his second single “Earthquake” again featuring Tinie Tempah. Taken from his up coming debut album this track is massive. The track speaks for itself and is just what Unity Radio 92.8fm is all about with a massive beat and a smooth bass line plus party style lyrics to hype up any crowd.
Labrinth is the one to watch this year and into 2012 and so deserves Unity Radio 92.8fm’s Record of the week.
Labrinth’s latest also gets the Remix treatment with a hybrid version by Eyes, a House mix by Gareth Wyn, a Dubstep mix by Noisia and a squelching, glitchy breaks mix by Street Policy! All getting Unity Radio 92.8fm support in the daytime and evening. Watch out for the StarOne remix too.
