In a profession where the best artists speak with their hands, London-born Ibe has had the last word at Gotham’s top venues for nearly a decade. Crowds of all kinds have caught a wave on his electic sets at Up + Down, No. 8, Silencio (Paris), Soho House (NY and Miami), The Box, Maisono, Above the Standard, The Gansevoort Hotel and Above Allen. His recent clients include US Soccer, Public School and Purple Magazine. When Ibe’s not on the wheels he’s in the lab, where he’s produced for Rick Ross, Faith Evans, Keyshia Cole and Kendrick Lamar. Less talk, more tunes.
