Formed by producers Sabre, Stray and Halogenix, Ivy Lab are a North London collective that is part of a nascent movement of bass music refugees cross-pollinating UK soundsystem culture with influences from Future beats, the Mo’Wax era and LA’s Low End Theory focused beat scene. Their debut album adopts a clan style approach where different configurations of members, and collaborators, might operate under the Ivy Lab mantle:

“There’s a potency to everything Ivy Lab have released” DJ Mag
“The debut album the drum n bass world’s been itching to hear” Mixmag
“The insanely talented trio has breathed new life into drum & bass” UKF
“At the heart of a nascent movement of producers currently pushing Drum & Bass music further and further into striking new territory – bursting supposed genre boundaries apart at the seams” Hyponik
“A confident and exciting sound” DnB Dojo
“You need to turn this up loud. Heavy!” MistaJam
