Ivy Lab was born in 2011 as a meeting of the minds of Sabre, Stray and Halogenix. Initially starting off as 3 mates making beats, what was realized fairly early on was that there was potential for a lot more. ‘Oblique’ firmly set the path for cementing the coalition which immediately attracted the support of some of the highest celebrated labels and DJs of the moment. Early 2014 saw their first cemented release as Ivy Lab with ‘Missing Persons‘ – a super solid fusion of liquid, rolling beats and hip hop crossover which put it simply worked a treat! Followed again last year with another sterling EP ‘Twenty Questions‘ – their most ambitious and most accomplished EP yet.
