    Bit overrated? Sure it's a great tune but Baby Grey is at least as good? Why all the hype on this one? Don't get it :-S

    Nice tune. Ivy lab are just absolute quality. Overrated? not sure if serious...hopefully not. Baby grey recieved just as much "hype" if not way more. Time to revive the overrated thread :derp2:

    Yeah it is equally as good to be fair - slightly different vibe, could say it's getting more exposure as it's on a standalone release rather than a comp... hence the observation of more hype.

    Love Ivy Lab!

    loving this, baby grey's massive but this is a totally different vibe, really mood roller, drums are on point. HUGE

    yeah that could make sense - I prefer Baby Grey tho but gotta say Ivy Lab is killing it. Don't think there was a bad release. Easily combining deeper d&b emotions with great vocals/samples and rule the d&b community with it. Picks on releases of all the tracks have been spot on as well. If this can be called liquid (aside of the more neuroy things like St Clair/Brat etc. which are very good too!) I'd say they've been on par with Calibre in the last 2 years.

    Absolute nitpicking in this thread, everything they've put out has been instabag material / end of really.
