Tomahawk aka Tom Kelsey

This festive season brings down the curtain on the Hospital career of Tom Kelsey.
The Tomahawk started working with us as a volunteer, whilst still at college back in 2001. He soon became entirely indispensable and thankfully Tom was happy to stay long enough to eventually be offered a full-time job in promotions.

 

As a skilled producer, DJ and the world’s biggest Danny Byrd fan, he swiftly established himself as a pivotal part of our little team. He was resident DJ in the early days of Hospitality at Herbal, and contributed some real nuggets to our early compilations: Hospital Mix 2 (“Strictly Ballroom”), Plastic Surgery (“Until Dawn”) and Weapons Of Mass Creation (“Straw Dogs”).

 

Tom became our go-to guy for DJ mixes on the Hospitality projects, and – unbeknown to most people – was also a studio diva; vocals, acapellas, bv’s, and soundtrack oddities for High Contrast, Danny Byrd, S.P.Y, Metrik, and Nu:Logic. When London Elektricity morphed into a live band in 2003, Tom was the obvious choice for live sound engineer and occasional TM and van driver. He has been one 3rd of the A&R machine for many years, as well as mastering engineer and from time to time co-writer – including highlights such as “Hot Fuzz”, “Metamorphosis”, and “Collateral”.

 

Blessed with an acerbic wit and deft turn of phrase, Tom has headed up our promotions department, and been driving our radio-plugging for many years. His three straight A-list singles in a row for the ‘Rave Digger’ campaign stands as a company benchmark. He’s also quite the Home Improvement man about town; Tom masterminded our recent office refurb, and crafted our new 2 and 3-person desks.

 

All-in-all, he is a don. A massive part of Hospital’s growth and success. We will miss him big style and wish him every success in his future ventures.

OUT NOW: Lynx – ‘Where Are You?’ EP

Monday, December 1st, 2014

The debut release from Hospital Records’ latest exclusive signing Lynx. This Portsmouth based produced is known to many within the drum+bass scene for his unique, rhythmic, anthemic productions, and for those who don’t know – be assured you’ll be hearing a lot more from him over the coming months. This EP of four stand out cuts introduces the diverse sound of a producer at the top of his game.

Lead track “Where Are You?” raises the levels of P Funk intrigue to breaking point, before the pentatonic wizardry of a trademark Lynx bass-line melody kicks in. ‘Bees Knees’ follows on – a track so infectious, it’s been keeping staff at Hospital’s Purple Gates HQ awake all night.

‘Hurting’ takes things deeper and darker, with Master X’s heartfelt delivery underpinned by some filthy jungle styles. Aggressive distorted subs, off beat percussion and animal cries provide the soundtrack to a royal rumble in the rainforest. Last but by no means least comes ‘Blue’, a hard-boiled P-funk steppa. Like a post apocalyptic night down at Ronnie Scott’s, this jam is hot.

DJ Marky – “INCREDIBLE!!!! Best release in years!!!”

Crissy Cris -”Wicked!”

Jenna G – “Excellent to hear Lynx back with a bang!”

Ulterior Motive – “Production Masterclass as per!”
