Timothy McKenzie better known by his stage name Labrinth (born in 1989 in London, England) is a English Dance, hip hop singer. Labrinth has achieved two top 10 singles in the UK after both in collaboration with rapper Tinie Tempah on his songs "Pass Out" and "Frisky". Labrinth is signed to Simon Cowell's record label, Syco, becoming the first non-talent show signing in six years. It has said that many record labels wanted McKenzie as a producer but Cowell signed him as a solo act.
McKenzie started his big time career by producing for Master Shortie in his debut album A.D.H.D., also producing and featuring on Tinie Tempah's first single "Pass Out", which entered the UK singles charts at number 1, becoming Tinie Tempah's first single to reach top 1 and Labrinth first single to reach the top of the charts. Labrinth co-wrote the song Pass Out. In June 2010, Labrinth and Tinie Tempah collaborated again, on single "Frisky" where the song charted at #2, while topping the UK R&B singles charts.
Labrinth is currently working on his debut album, which is set to be released at the end of Summer 2010, and his debut single "Let the Sunshine" is due for release on 27 September 2010.
Labrinth features on Professor Green's track "Oh My God" taken from the latter's album Alive Till I'm Dead. He is writing songs for Professor Green, N-Dubz, Pixie Lott, Preeya Kalidas and Loick Essien and remixing songs from JLS. He remixed the single Stylo by Gorillaz which featured Tinie Tempah.
