MethLab represents artists from the cutting edge of the tech-fuelled electronic spectrum – focussing on the exploration of the fringes of forward-thinking sonic concepts. We push aphotic electronic bass music, created by pioneering individuals who aren’t afraid to break away from the pack and are so unique in their abilities that their ever-growing audiences follow their continual experimentation. We support and help to build the careers of artists adept at sound design, with in-depth understanding of musicality and who are able to create unique and unprecedented sonic structures and reimagined concepts, pioneers who work to expand the frontiers of their respective genres. We provide assistance and guidance through our award-winning label, the organisation of worldwide tours press support for releases on and outside our own label, management, career guidance and facilitating unusual projects aimed at reaching new followers and providing ground-breaking technological contexts for their work. Our objective is to bring our collective’s musical vision of the future into the present – to assist in the creation of a world in which audio-visual experimentation has the focus it deserves and in which the type of nightlife experiences and events that inspire, challenge, move bodies and provide jaw-dropping moments and exquisite memories can thrive.
