UK MUSIC: LABRINTH FT TINE TEMPAH – EARTHQUAKE

Producer/artist Labrinth teams up with Tinie Tempah on his new single Earthquake.

…..

Earthquake actually sounds pretty good, decent production, but Labrinth could have done without featuring Tinie on the track, and he needs to decide whether he is going to rap/sing in his monotone English accent or an American accent.

The Video – People have been hyping up this video saying it’s “SICK” and “AMAZING” , but in my opinion it’s just alright. The video just reminds me of an 1980s style video game.

Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

  1. I loved that song. It’s really good. I think his album is going to be a great pop “urban” (hate that word) album

    @Adaobi yeah it was his first single but Tinie was so big last year it wasn’t a major talking point. “pass out” was huge and his involvement in that eclipsed his own debut single in my opinion

  2. I like this track! Great production.

    I know he’s signed to Simon Cowell’s label but the shout out to Simon and “turning ’em Syco” line is a bit uncool though

  3. Earthquake is a sick tune. He makes really raw music for a neek. His more rugged TeamUK team mates should be ashamed

    They play his first single during the Talk Talk bits (idents?) on XFactor. You must know it MadNews & co. It’s a sick tune. Think they rushed it out to capitalise on the Pass Out & Frisky buzz then sent him on artist development stuff hence the delay between singles.

  4. I like this song.

    For some reason I don’t think he should try to be an artists, I have said before that Labrinth should focus on writing and producing for other people (thats where the money is anyway). This should’ve been Tinie’s first single from the next album, I realy think it would’ve been huge, but what do I know anyway.
