Ivory is set to release his album ‘Jack In the Box’ (produced by Wizard with collabs from Deekline, Fresh, Ivory and Breakfastaz) on RAT RECORDS. Prior to that his single ‘Hand Grenade’ is set to drop..
‘Hand Grenade’ is a rocket-fuelled adrenalin shot of blistering bass and earth-shattering drums, topped off with the hi-octane lyricism of Ivory, the super-sharp-shooter MC whose scattershot fusion of diverse influences is set to see him stride out of the South London underground to claim his rightful spot at the pinnacle of the indie rave scene.
This youthful, Brixton-born motor-mouth grew up on a diet of jungle, old skool rave, UK garage and punk, diverse forms which have been fused with surgical precision into a fresh and vibrant sound that fits 2010 like a velvet glove. ‘Hand Grenade’, the lead single from Ivory's forthcoming debut album, ‘Jack In The Box’, is street level sonic chicanery that recalls prime era Prodigy with added ghetto attitude.
Heads out there will recognise the supreme technical prowess of sound engineer Wizard on the knobs and dials, while on the flip, 22-year old Canadian Excision turns in a heavy-as-all-hell, no-holds-barred powerslam of a remix which shows exactly why he's been making such a big name for himself across north America and beyond with his hip-hop-infused dubstep style.
The full Ivory album, which arrives in June 2010, features collaborations with underground EDM legends such as Deekline, Fresh and the Breakfastaz. Hold tight for some serious weapons of mass destruction, which are set to blow up dancehalls across the nation.
As a taster, we have the track 'No Cure' to give away;

Feb 15 sees the release of the ghettotech anthem: DJ GODFATHER ft DJ OMEGA – GHETTO ELECTRO on Giant Pussy, already getting plays on Kissy Sell Out’s Radio 1 show.
Blazing a trail into the new decade, Giant Pussy have snaffled none other than DJ Godfather’s Ghettotech anthem: Ghetto Electro. DJ Omega’s vocal rides the tight Detroit beats and bass in a booty-shaking ass-whipping monster of a record.
And on remix duty, the mighty Nom De Strip, delivers his strongest remix to date. A battle-weapon in both Tim Healey and Deekline’s DJ sets, the ripping bassline and effortless funky groove will drive you till the dawn.
Next up, following his hugely successful electro-house debut in 2009, German hip-hop supremo TAI, (aka Tai Jason) carves up the original in his inimitable style: and unleashes a monster Liberace-esque piano break guaranteed to turn any party on its head, before demolishing the dance-floor with more bass to-die-for.
And to celebrate this new release we have a DJ mix from Giant Pussy label owner Tim Healey which features both house remixes by heavyweight producers: NOM DE STRIP and hip-hop legend, TAI... and super cool ‘GHETTO ELECTRO’
