IVY LAB (2020/CRITICAL)
DISPLACE (DEDICATION AUDIO)
This week TTC brings you one (or should we say 3?) of the hottest names in Drum and Bass – Stray, Sabre and Halogenix – collectively known as Ivy Lab!
North London trio Ivy Lab were brought together out of a shared enthusiasm for experimentations on the fringes of the Drum’n’Bass scene.
A string of standout singles and E.Ps for their principle label-partner Critical music with tracks like ‘Live on your smile’ and ’20 Questions’ have followed up on the groups melancholic, acid-tinged strand first showcased in the anthemic single ‘Oblique’ that initially brought the trio into the limelight. Additional support has come in the form of Goldie‘s Metalheadz recordings with the release of ‘Make it Clear’ and a string of remixes for acts and labels including Sub Focus (Universal), TC (3beat) and Anushka (Brownswood). With a secure reputation as purveyors of thoughtful, melodic drum’n’bass now affirmed, the group have increasingly been turning their attention to experiments in cross-pollination. The collective now find themselves heavily invested in the movement operating under the stop-gap monicker of ‘Halftime’– A motley assortment of actors from across the bass music landscape applying their sonic-heritage to experiments with hip-hop and drum machine electronica.
2014 saw the birth of ‘2020’. Initially a London clubnight set up to act as a home for the halftime movement, the project is expanding to encompass a record label, 2020 clubnight appearances across the U.K, and the inclusion of a broader collective of artists both established and emerging. Plus, in 2015, they released their album ‘20/20 Volume 1’ to critical acclaim.
2015 also saw the trio in the studio with another world conquering DnB trio, Noisia, and teaming up with Critical Records label mate Mefjus under the Mef-Lab pseudonym to create one of DnBs stand out tunes of last year, Sunday Crunk

This year the trio show no sign of slowing down, having already been in the studio with Noisia and Alix Perez, plus a string high profile festival announcements including Boomtown and Outlook.
Tonight we welcome Ivy Lab to Sheffield for their TTC debut!
