""This s**t is fresh!""

"This s**t is fresh!" - Snoop Dogg


"Lovebox 2011 on Radio 1"

"Really cool. They've got a sort of Gym Class Heroes type vibe. A bit jazzy and alternative hip hop sort of thing." - Radio 1


"Lovebox 2011"

"True Ingredients drew me in immediately because their energy was infectious. I was impressed; these guys have an edgy UK Hip Hop vibe and they had a streak of Roots Manuva." - eFestivals - Lovebox Fionna Madden

"Here and Now!"


"***** Their amalgamation of quality production, heavy beats, good tunes and occasional sweet insanity, helps them span several musical boundaries... The True Ingredients are here and now!" - Straight Outta Now


"Conscious Hip Hop Collective Cook Up"

This lot are releasing their debut album on a pair of sunglasses, whatever next? Via dentist, direct to a tooth filling? Just enter the sunglasses code on www.trueingredients.com and download the album in full, apparently. Not a bad idea as it goes, as is the inspiration behind this collective. Their music a veritable menagerie of agrarian hip–hop grooves and dubwise jazzy nuances, True Ingredients are a much needed breath of fresh air in the often stale and staid world of UK hip-hop. With the right combination of ingredients, these lot seem to have the recipe for success.
