Streetlab is an electro-rock music duo from NYC formed in late 2001 by Mark ‘Cosmo’ Lamorg and Ryan Leary. Taking the role as in-studio producers and songwriters, the two began by remixing classic rock songs with the dance-floor in mind. Being raised on the music scenes of the early 90’s, the two attempt to erase boundaries – making music that appeals to both rockers and dancers.
After receiving much support from Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale for their remixes, Streetlab inspired indie-rock label Kanine Records, where they contributed remixes to their catalog for Mixel Pixel and Professor Murder. Astralwerks and Invisible Records were up next, receiving remixes for artists Prophet Omega and Rx. The two also landed a mix on The Limitless Potential, a compilation of Nine Inch Nails songs from the album Year Zero.
In the past, Streetlab has teamed up with NYC DJ Eamon Harkin, and NYC club promoter GBH for mixes of Crystal Castles and Black DanieL. From there, they connected with Parisian acts PlayGround and Thieves Like Us for remix treatments. By early 2008 the two began sneaking out original material on their WebSite. The song ‘NYSound’ generated great internet buzz and received even more radio support from BBC Radio 1. Following this up with remixes for Hot Chip and IHeartComix’s Heartsrevolution, Streetlab caught the attention of RCRD LBL / Downtown Records. RCRD LBL released ‘NYSound’ in September ’08 and has another single set to release in the coming months. In the summer of 2009, the duo’s single “NY Sound” was featured in Episode 2 of the sixth season of HBO‘s Entourage
