The urban star will take the stage at Etoiles at Emirates Palace on July 13, performing tracks from his acclaimed debut album Electronic Earth.

Labrinth’s, whose real name is Timothy McKenzie, first turned heads in 2010 courtesy of his stellar collaboration with fellow Londoner Tine Tempah, co-writing and producing hits Pass Out and Frisky.

The resulting attention made him an in-demand producer with Rihanna, Usher and Cheryl Cole all lining up to request his electro tinged beats.

Labrinth’s risky decision to put the collaborations on hold to focus on Electronic Earth paid off with singles Earthquake and Last Time peaking at number two and four on the UK charts respectively.

While he is fond of synthesisers, Labrinth has been known to pull out an acoustic guitar during performances, here's hoping he will pluck some strings in his Abu Dhabi appearance.

Labrinth at Etoiles at Emirates Palace. Friday July 13. 11.30pm with free entry before 1am. For details and reservations call 02 690 8960.
