Meet Mistabishi – the sound of a junglist, who also happens to be disgruntled city banker and an expert in digital audio.
“No Matter What” has rocketed onto the d&b scene like a runaway share price. Raising a lot of eyebrows on the scene with its controversial hands in the air hardcore styles and mind blowing futureproof production. As sonically strong as it is melodically lush this is the sound of a true tortured genius making original forward thinking music watch out for the screaming switch-up!

Pound for pound Hospital’s best producers have come to show you their muscle. Make sure you have got ringside seats as Cyantific bring you two dancefloor TKOs.
Compromising is for the weak as “Disconnected” hits you like a Panzer tank division. 16 bars of bongo boogie is all that’s needed by way of an introduction before an angry barrage of sub bass and metallic stabs which hit you hard. Already massive amongst DJs like Andy C – this featured on his recent Drum & Bass Arena mix CD and has had fans chomping at the bit for this metal on metal grind out. Flipping things over for “Serpent” – straight out of the Jungle. A melee of bass and beats seems to have enraged the animals as this one drops like a knife fight in the monkey pit at London zoo. ‘Roided up to the max, this is a beefier, harder Cyantific, Scared!? You should be!

The sixth Med School installment has arrived courtesy of Newcastle’s own Craggz. Believe it or not it’s Craggz’s first solo 12″ and, true to form, the Product/Valve man has delivered two bass-heavy club smashers.
“My Detroit” harks back to the finest electronic music to come out of the Motor City with it’s bleepy techno influences. Skull-crushing low end propels the track forward and will have your eyeballs shaking in their sockets. Filling out the rest of the prescription is “Flick The Switch”. Hypnotising synth stabs are peppered over crushing beats and another monster bassline. Yet again the Valve style mixdown is in full and deadly effect.
Needless to say these tunes have already found favour with the big dogs – the likes of DJ Marky, EZ Rollers, Marcus Intalex and DJ Flight are already battering them hard.
Featuring brand new Med School artwork, this release will no doubt be a massive hit with the ever increasing fan base and promises to shake bassbins all over the globe!!

With the shockwaves still being felt from the award winning debut album “Now More Than Ever”, Logistics is back with a brand new forward-thinking EP.
“Wide Lens” kicks things off in ideal fashion, a lush synth build up warms it up nicely until BANG you are into a bassline straight out of murksville. Switching things up “Cold World” burns white hot with half time pressure that will turn heads and cross over into the dubstep domain nicely. With lasers set to stun, “Glitch” is a slow burning masterpiece with glitchy bitcrushed synths and some heavyweight reese bass. The awesome foursome is rounded off in spectacular fashion with the filtered cyber stomp of “Spotlight”. The sound of the future once again from jungle’s own Jedi in the making, however, which side of the force he is on still remains an enigma!

After the stunning remix of “Seven Years”, Matrix is back on Hospital remix duties and this time he’s enlisted the help of production buddy Futurebound to increase the pressure. The boys have turned Nu:Tone’s 1Xtra anthem “System” into an epic dancefloor destroyer, taking Natalie Williams’s incredible vocal to soaring new heights.
On the flip comes another heavy hitter in the vein of the humungous “Missing Link”. “Second Connection” is a textbook exercise in crunching bassline science like only Nu:Tone knows how. Do not miss!

Tough Guys Don’t Dance is the incredible third album from Hospital’s original DnB prodigy and we can exclusively reveal that the full release is now available on the Hospital Shop.
This multifaceted rollercoster includes oldskool-influenced nuggets “Tread Softly” and “The Ghost Of Jungle Past” as well as the face-melting techno styles of “Metamorphosis”. Not to mention the slinky downbeat dnb switch up of “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” and the upbeat euphoria provided by “Eternal Optimist” and “Sleepless”.
Tough Guys is as much music for the dancefloor as it is the soundtrack to an unwritten film. Drawing its influence from a wide range of sources, and maintaining High Contrast’s appeal to fans of broad musical persuasions. Featuring some exciting collaborations and guest performances, this is the sound of a genre defining producer at the top of his game… don’t miss it!!

On Friday 4th January 2008, we are spreading Hospital love for the very first time through all three rooms at London superclub Fabric. Not only are we taking over the whole venue, but our superstar d&b line up graces room 1 and let’s get it straight – room 1 has the best soundsystem, and the best DJ booth in town, so we’ve recruited the skills of some of the best in the business.
No Hospital line up would be complete without Hospital’s top DJ and longtime Fabric resident High Contrast. Joining him are two living legends of the scene – Radio 1’s Fabio and Digital Soundboy head honcho Shy FX. We’ve also got Cyantific repping the sound of things to come with three deck mixes and more double drops than you can shake a stick at. Nu:Tone, the boy from the Back of Beyond, makes the trip from Cambridge and knows how to rock the Fabric dancefloor. Completing the bill is our very own West country soulboy Danny Byrd for whom 2008 will be a big year with the impending release of his debut album on Hospital.
If that wasn’t enough, we’ve got Med School beat surgeons Fracture & Neptune and Martsman rocking room 3 upstairs with 4 Hero, Klute and Flight. Not to mention some heavy dubstep pressure in room 2 from the likes of Benga, Coki, Caspa+Rusko and Kode 9. Make sure you’re recovered from seeing in the New Year and get yourself down to Fabric on the 4th!!

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is an inspired drum & bass interpretation of Iron Butterfly’s 17 minute rock odyssey of the same name, High Contrast wrestles with rock legend and sculpts it into his own twisted twenty-first century classic.
On the flip the Contrast brings us a hands-in-the-air epic Forever And A Day. Reminiscent of one of High Contrast’s early anthems – the seminal “Return of Forever” – this time it’s MOBO winner J’nay on the vocal tip.
