Electronic music powerhouse Lab Group recently announced a Mission Ballroom show in 2024. They will be headlining on Friday, February 23rd, and bringing a highly-anticipated supporting cast. Joining them are New Jersey producer Clams Casino and Montreal musician Jacques Greene. The event page also indicates there will be more artists announced later.
Lab Group “works from a common point of creative expedition in search of a defined serenity block,” according to their website. In less scientific terms, they bring together musicians from across genres to create dope beats and jams. Formed by renowned producers Potions (real name Tom Owens), Supertask (real name Kyle Bishoff), and the late CharlestheFirst, Lab Group has continued to evolve.
After the untimely passing of a founding member, many groups may never recover, but the lab wasn’t ready to close. Bringing in additional collaborators tiedye ky and Player Dave, they’ve recently released two singles. They’ve also been recording new materials for an upcoming LP titled Lab Group 2.
Inquiry, Exploration, and Discovery
Those three words adorn the announcement poster for Lab Group’s 2024 Mission Ballroom show. It also describes the mindset around which Owens and Bishoff’s music concept revolves. Recent performances have demonstrated the cooperative spirit of production. A recent announcement for the show informed fans that they’ll see all surviving core members and artists who collaborated on the new album. If you caught night one of Rezz Rocks in Morrison, you witnessed their mind-melting set after sundown.
