Ivy Lab - Death Don't Always Taste Good
As the definitive halftime album to date, this banger-loaded release falls somewhere between a compilation album and a mixtape. It crushes the scene with a mix of collaborative productions and solo beats from the individual members of Ivy Lab, the spawns of the UK bass music scene.
This release helped them earn a place in Mixmag’s Top 10 DJs of 2015 and fuel a new generation of hip-hop inspired abstractions housed within the framework of their 20/20 LDN project. The duo of Sabre (Gove Kidao) and Stray (J. Fogel) 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.
