L.B.T. (Live Beat Tapes) is a collective formed of the finest Hip Hop producers, Jazz musicians, rappers, and singers around. It’s a 12 piece super group signed at the local label Raw Tapes, a unique record label and beat collective consisting of Tel Aviv’s finest producers, beat makers, and DJ’s (Buttering Trio, Kalimist K Boog, Rejoicer, Galo, and more).

Listening to L.B.T. on Soundcloud will take you through the first 10 episodes released last year as an introduction to the debut album “The Singles,” released in February 20, 2015 (Raw Tapes/Kudos Records). It’s on stage that L.B.T. reveals entirely the virtuosity of its members and leaves the audience with a unique groove experience supported with beautiful songs. In Israel L.B.T. is performing regularly in the best venues and has participated in majors festivals (IndNegev, White Night Tel Aviv, Ya’arot Menashe, and more).

The group consists of:

Amir Bresler (drums): one of the busiest personas in town and a rhythmic mastermind.

Beno Hendler (bass veteran): also known for his work with Balkan Beat Box.

Nomok (keyboards): a jazz pianist from a young age and real dope beat maker.

Rejoicer (synthesizer): head honcho of the Raw Tapes label & a producer extraordinaire.

KerenDun (vocals, sax, percussion): one of the most unique multi-instrumentalist, beat maker, and vocalist around.

Echo (vocals): the sort of person to hear a song and instantly sing the right thing.

Rebel Sun (vocals): a Baltimore OG, working with groups like Coolooloosh & Lucille.

Yonatan Albalak (guitar): Playing with LayerZ & Avishai Cohen alongside some of Israel’s finest musicians.

Mo Rayon (vocals): a young rapper & dedicated producer who has been slamming tracks for the past few years.

Yudko the Abstract (sampler, sax): Pannonica Recordings head honcho and hazy beat maker; also a veteran in the Jazz world.

Mesh Cohen (DJ): Long time scratcher and Israeli Hip Hop scene godfather.

Asaf Shay (sound): a necessity to any L.B.T. show.
