Med School are extremely excited to present the “Losing My Mind” EP, our final release of 2014 and the debut solo release from the label’s latest signing, Anile.

Since joining the label back in May of this year, following a handful of popular releases on both Med School and Hospital, Anile has worked tirelessly to craft this elegant and sophisticated four-track EP. The title track combines bold brass stabs, brooding string sections and an indelible vocal hook into an alluring drum & bass roller. Throughout the rest of the assembly you can be sure to dote on a brew of deep-seated basslines, thoughtful musicality and rolling breaks.

Having delivered a scintillating remix of Blu Mar Ten earlier this year and with releases on the likes of Soul:r and Commercial Suicide, Anile looks to further cement his sound in the drum & bass consciousness with this latest collection of tracks on Med School. This is one for the discerning DJ and the astute listener alike.

in News

Fred V & Grafix, together with the help of Hospital’s A&R hit squad have stylishly curated a collection of d+b talent to re-work tracks from their critically acclaimed debut album, which was released earlier this year.

Featuring the Fred V vocalled single ‘Recognise’, as well as the Radio One playlisted ‘Forest Fires (feat Etherwood), the album ‘Recognise’ was nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ at the Independent Music Awards – alongside the likes of London Grammar and The Arctic Monkeys.

Eschewing obvious names in favour of cutting-edge artists who are already shaping the future of the genre. The likes of Etherwood, Keeno, Chords and Fredric Robinson represent a new generation, bringing a fresh injection of musical genius to d+b.

On top of the twelve remixes Fred V & Grafix also present one brand new track in the shape of ‘3-D Glasses’. The first new material from the boys since February, it’s a slice of warping triplet time d+b that mines a the current vogue of classical influenced dance music.

Since the albums release Fred V & Grafix have been touring the globe non-stop, playing gigs and festivals from Glastonbury to LA. Finding time in between gigs to turn in remixes for the likes of MNEK, Second City, Netsky and Hybrid.

OUT NOW: Nu:Tone ‘Future History’

October 20, 2014 in News

‘Future History’ is Nu:Tone’s fourth studio album. Nu:Tone is an artist with the kind of rich history and authority to be able to reach into drum+bass’ deepest past and create an album of snapshots from the many ages of jungle; with knowing nods to classic tracks and the sound of hallmark events – from ‘Swerve’ at the Velvet Rooms to ‘Logical Progression’ and ‘Hospitality at Heaven’.

Opening with the epic ‘‘Til Dawn’ – recalling New Deep Society’s ‘Warehouse Dayz of Glory’ – an apt mission statement for the project. Soul chanteuse Lea Lea adds spine tingling vocals to ‘Tides’ before Hospitality favourite Dynamite MC steps up to the mic with the infectious bassline wobbler ‘Cannibals’. Further into the dark interior of the album things get murky with twisted rap genius, and original Ultramagnetic MC, Kool Keith blessing ‘Metaphor 6000’. As the voice of the prodigy’s ‘Smack My B*tch Up’, it’s a rare appearance for the seminal US rapper, and a coup for Nu:Tone. Across thirteen tracks, ‘Future History’ is bursting with moments of genius – each track looking squarely forward through a prism of the past.

Preview ‘Metaphor 6000’ feat. Kool Keith on our youtube page:

Few drum+bass artists command the same respect as Nu:Tone, both within the scene and across the wider dance music community, with his recent discography taking in remixes for the likes of 3 beat, Warner and Sony. Nu:Tone has stripped down and re-worked the likes of Axwell, Sandy Revera et al, with Major labels clamouring for his skills behind a mixing desk.

Pre-order: Krakota debut Hospital single ‘Xylo’

October 9, 2014 in News

Hospital’s freshest signing and Bournemouth based producer Krakota is set to release his debut Hospital EP on the 13th of October, which includes two contrasting tracks of quality nu-school d+b magic; ‘Xylo’, and ‘Irregular’on the flipside. Instantly recognisable thanks to it’s infectious percussive riff (the clue’s is in the title), ‘Xylo’ is a syncopated stepper which drops hard thanks to a rugged rumbling off beat sub. ‘Irregular’ switches the story with stacato synth work and angry angular beats.

With earlier releases on Critical, Ingredients, Subtitles and the mighty Playaz label, not to mention two tracks on Hospitals epic ‘We Are 18’ compilation at the start of this year, Krakota see the likes of Friction, Fabio and Crissy Criss already supporting heavily.
