Ivy Lab

Ivy Lab

Ivy Lab is a collaborative project between Sabre & Stray [1] Originally starting life as a trio |(Sabre, Halogenix and Stray.), North London outfit Ivy Lab were brought together out of a shared enthusiasm for experimentation 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.

Career

The duo, Sabre & Stray , 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 invested further in the exploration of this sound with the creation of their ‘20/20 LDN’ clubnight.

Housed primarily at Brixton’s Phonox nightclub, it earned the characterization of “ultra innovative” (Timeout Magazine) and a “London standout” (Mixmag). [2]

Minted in late 2015, and borrowing the same raison d'être as its elder sibling nightlife brand; 20/20 LDN Recordings was unveiled with the pseudo-mixtape/compilation LP “Ivy Lab presents 20/20 Volume.1” - described as “uncompromising, insightful and rather awesome : 9/10” (Mixmag) and “impossible to categorize : 9/10” (DJ Mag).

Little over a year (and only 5 releases deep) the label was awarded the title of ’Best Breakthrough Label 2016’ in the DJ Mag ‘Best of British Awards 2016’.

Now a galvanizing presence in the ‘Future Beats’ movement, Ivy Lab’s’ “20/20 Volume.1” release and the subsequent follow up E.P’s were benchmark moments in forging the genre into a pillar of the electronic music landscape.

Tracks such as “Spooky Dub”, “Can’t Say No” & “Peninsula” all garnered incredible currency, supplemented by showpiece remixes for Banks (“Fuck with myself”) and Noisia (“Tentacles”).

That same currency as bass music figureheads has been embraced by festivals as varied as Glastonbury, EDC Vegas, SXSW, Sonar (Barcleona + HK), CTM Berlin, Dour, ADE, Woo Hah!, Shambhala, Lightning In A Bottle, Lowlands, Origin NYE, Exit & Outlook.

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.
