Andy Caboche, better known as the dubstep producer Ivory has been releasing fantastic music for the better part of the last decade. Making up half of the duo The Wizards along with Sean Long (MED) the multi talented artist is on a roll.
Hailing from Paris, France, IVORY began making music in 2011 but it wasn’t until 2012 he was introduced to dubstep and it was love at first sound. In 2016 “Retro” his first release via 193 Records, reached number 1 on Beatport and was heavily supported by reputable artists such as Skrillex, Zomboy and Borgore. The following year, after releasing his first EP “Hacked” that gained attention from powerhouse labels like NSD Black Label & Disciple Round Table. In 2018 IVORY released his second EP “Next Level” that gathered even more attention from top charting bass artists like Excision, NGHTMRE, Slander and more – read more about Ivory in our recent interview here!
The producer has now treated fans to a new EP “Beast” which really rounds out and expands on the his releases from the last few years.
“Beast” a collaboration with Bizo and The Arcturians is the title track of the EP and starts off with lush vocals laid over inviting melodies leading into high energy rave influenced heavy dubstep that keeps building and building throughout the track – I really love the eiery sing along feel of the vocals in this one – especially in the second break/build section.
“Rave Thing” stays true to its name by taking that classic rave stab and just ramming it through the track – this one is huge super massive awesome – the way the cuts hit in the drops is just incredible – especially the processed higher vocal cuts sitting over the intense sound design. I’m going to totally have this on repeat.
“The Fall” starting off with a haunting atmosphere that really sets the tone – The energetic vocals give way to a big brassy build, which then falls into absolute chaos. This collaboration with Nitti Gritti has some fantastic moments – really vibe the use of the fills sprinkled over the this large tune.
“Gloom” rounds out the release continuing the start with a haunting atmosphere but this time adding some awesome flute in the intro/build – the way the this works as a final tune pulling together elements and vibes of the previous is fantastic – a great way to close out the EP. I can’t wait to hear what’s next from Ivory!!
