Hospitality London 2014 – Celebrating 18 years of Hospital Records
We are celebrating Hospital Records 18th birthday in 2014, so in honour of this milestone we are taking an emotional trip down memory lane by revisiting iconic venues across London that have helped to make Hospitality events what they are today.
February 7th we head up to Building Six (previously the famous Matter nightclub of the 02 Arena). “The best club in the world” according to London Elektricity during our Matter residency, we are excited to return to this world class venue, of course we will be bringing a world class lineup, soundsystem and atmosphere… as standard.
Then on May 4th we will be stepping even further back into the history books for a one-off spectacular at our beloved Heaven – a maze of dancefloors, bars and sound systems located under the arches of Charing Cross station in the heart of central London, a nightclub engraved on the heart of British rave culture. Those who remember the original Hospitality events at Heaven will know these were really special occasions, and we aim to recapture that vibe in 2014 with the best artists and the friendliest crowd. And for those who never made it to Heaven all those years ago, this is your chance to experience an integral piece of Hospitality history.
Both events promise to be something to saviour, completely unique whilst including everything you love about Hospitality. For this reason we have come up with a ticket that gets you into both, click combo ticket, and we will see you there!

Xavier)” and “Touchline (feat. Serocee)” from the Byrd man himself, we present a fine selection of dance floor bubblers.

Big love and shouts out to everyone who came down to our pop-up Hospital Shop on Camden High Street in November. With all our records and merchandise in store and music through the week from London Elek, Etherwood & the Med School crew, S.P.Y, Fred V & Grafix, Nu:Logic and more, we had a great time and hope you all did too.
Couldn’t make it? We’ve got you covered – Episode 215 of the Hospital Podcast was recorded live at the shop and is ready for your aural attention, and the merchandise that debuted exclusively in Camden is now available on our online shop too!
‘Loving You Is Easy’ shows us even more soul and disco style from the boys, and has become a centrepiece of their DJ sets, as well as radio tracklistings across the airwaves.
Alongside the original tempo version there are remixes from S.P.Y who ups the twists up both genre and tempo pairing an infectious garage bassline under skittering d&b backing, Infuze strips things back with some minimal dub sensibility while up-coming Belgian star Pomrad broadens the genre-pool further with his unique maximal sound.
As if all that wasn’t enough the package is rounded off with the apocalyptic ‘Armageddon’ featuring the signature Camo & Krooked sound. Heavy industrial synths build and build to a riotous drop with pile driving drums and shuddering sub-bass.
This Thursday we will be recording On Thursday 7th November we recorded our podcast LIVE from the Samsung GALAXY Shoreditch Studio, located in London’s Boxpark. London Elektricity will be manning the turntables as we record the show live in front of a studio audience, so come and have a dance and drink on us, and be part of.

Med School are very proud to present the high-anticipated debut album from remarkable new talent Etherwood.
Having captured the imagination of the scene at large with his awe-inspiring, anthemic productions and moving melodies, Etherwood is proving to be the hottest thing in drum & bass right now. Here he delves further into his signature sound, sculpting a beautiful album full of deep liquid flavours, delicate percussion and indelible vocals.
