Originally starting life as a trio, North London outfit Ivy Lab were brought together out of a shared enthusiasm for experimentations on the fringes of the UK bass music scene. The years that followed saw them go from strength to strength, earning a place in ‘The top 10 DJ’s of 2015’ (Mixmag) and propagating a new generation of hip-hop inspired abstractions housed within the framework of their ’20/20 LDN’ project.
The duo now find themselves at the apex of the ‘Halftime’ / ‘Future Beats’ / movement - A motley assortment of actors from across the bass music landscape applying their sonic-heritage to experiments with hip-hop and drum machine electronica.
Ivy Lab head into the horizon not only with an anchored presence at the cutting edge of the bass-music landscape, but also a secured reputation as pioneering label bosses & event promoters in ownership of one of the UK’s most exciting contemporary music brands.
Seattle, Washington heavyweight breakbeat manipulator and Samurai Music top-tierrazor-sharp affiliate - Homemade Weapons comes roaring back into action for the Heiress EP, his first full solo release since the immensity of his debut LP - Negative Space. Intricately sliced and manipulated breaks and kicks ricochet off each other over 4 tracks of guaranteed high voltage floor-mobbing dominance. ‘Streetcleaner’ has a cheeky percussive drift, while ’Pyrosome’ is pure dive-bomb adrenaline, ‘Nabilone’ the razor sharp steppers choice, with the title track opening proceedings with swarming menace.
