A BIG special thanks to Cathleen Bombard and Tucker Warner for inviting the Lab students :) For those of you who missed out...Foo-fa-raw was a night of frills and flashy finery. A Holiday party that featured local band Waagon, dance performances from the Cheeks girls and DJ sets by The Lab's Advanced Students. All went down at Higher Ground last Friday night. A special thanks to Bite Me Pizza and Redbull for the donations. CLICK HERE to view photos from the event (photo credit: BEN SARLE/B-Scene)

The Turntable Toy Store.....
"We're releasing a massive amount of personal items on our eBay store for the holidays. Anything from slipmats to records and even one of the turntables from the Lair of the Octagon. So check 'em out while they're still available..." -Q Bert

The Lab teaches kids the DJ arts
"In a studio overlooking Church Street, students are using technology to create hot beats. The large, spacious room is home to The Lab, Vermont’s Turntablism and Urban Music Production Center"
“Turntablism” is the art of using turntables to manipulate sounds to create music. Business owners Derrick Brown, 25, and Zack Johnson, 26, are anxious to bring cutting-edge technology to kids who want to learn about spinning tunes and music production.
“We chose Burlington and Church Street because it’s all about location,” said Brown.

What is it about Virgina that has bred some of the illest producers in the game- Timbaland, Danja Handz and the Neptunes.
Some of the Lab's favorite production from Pharrell and Chad includes work with NORE, the Clipse and Snoop Dogg. The duo has teamed up with Common to produce his latest effort Universal Mind Control. It's scheduled to be released December 9th. Common leaked about 4-5 songs on the internuts and so far we have to say we're not disappointed. Starrr Trakk Riiiderrrs yeahhh
