Labrinth smashed a guitar as he launched his album 'Electronic Earth' last night (04.04.12).

The 'Earthquake' hitmaker celebrated the release of his debut record - which came out on Monday (02.04.12) - by playing a special set at the launch of Sony Xperia in London, at the One Mayfair club.

Labrinth whipped the crowd into a frenzy, sending shout outs to his record company, Syco, as well as fans.

Between songs he said: "First of all, I got my family in the room so make some f***ing noise for my family.

"I got Syco in the room, make some noise for Syco. And I got Team Lab in the room, make some noise for Team Lab.

"You guys are serious, I see you. I wanna thank you all for being down for this, this is crazy. If you guys are ready to have some f***ing fun tonight I wanna hear you make some f***ing noise."

Labrinth's set included 'Let the Sun Shine', 'Last Time' and 'Express Yourself' and he was joined on stage at one point by dance troupe iLuminate, who perform in bespoke LED costumes and debuted a routine especially created for the event.

At the climax of his performance, Labrinth smashed the silver guitar, and said good night to fans, later tweeting his excitement from the after party.

He wrote: "Album was alright.... After party was better I'm #Tipsy but you gotta drink to fact that you just put an album #ElectronicEarth."


Timothy McKenzie aka Labrinth is one of the few acts in recent years to have been signed by Simon Cowell without first appearing on a TV talent show.
