Known collectively as Conduct, Robin Andrews & Chris Edwards began collaborating in 2009, working on a range of creative endeavours from graphic art to composition to cinematography. Between them, Conduct has a rich and diverse musical history, playing live in Extreme-Metal, Be-Bop and Jazz bands while also working in the delicate nuances of digital sound design. This tapestry of experience is reflected in their dynamic, widescreen DJ sets which range from the subsonically deep, through the beautifully soulful to the fearsomely technical.

North London’s Mark System first arrived on the scene in the late ’90s as an MC. His early love for the city’s pirate radio stations led him to experiment with keyboards and microphones, and inevitably on the path to a musical career. As well as MCing for various London clubs and radio stations, System was crafting his own blend of drum and bass. His creations quickly gained approval from prominent figures like Shy FX, and his long standing association with Digital Soundboy has resulted in solo releases on the label, as well as the holding position for first choice on mic duties.

Solid Steel in association with Serato (17th June) Ivy Lab step up in Hour 2 following the release of their Fortuna EP on 20/20 LDN that features the vocal talents of Roses Gabor. Formed by producers Sabre, Stray and Halogenix, Ivy Lab are a North London collective that is part of a nascent movement of bass music refugees cross-pollinating UK sound system culture. We hear tracks from Alix Perez, Richie Brains, Sa Ra, Diemantle, Jon 1st and Max Richter. You can catch them at their launch party at Phonox, London on 20th June. They had this to say about their mix;
“Maybe a touch more energy than what we’re put together for previous Ivy lab studio mixes, and is perhaps closer to what you hear from us in our club sets these days ….but the genre pool is still quintessentially 20/20 : bassweight rowdy halftime, loose grooved lofi beats scene stuff, and jungle/footwork inspired 160 shit.”
