Krakota, Lynx and Reso Sign In

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Like they say about buses, you wait ages for one and three come along at once! Hospital are excited to announce the worldwide signing of not one but three new artists – Krakota, Lynx and Reso.

Krakota Lynx Reso

Krakota joins the surgery after ear-catching releases on Critical, Ingredients and Integral, but Hospital fans should know him well from his contributions to this year’s Hospital: We Are 18 album. Expect bass heavy, break laden productions.

Reinventing drum+bass from the ground up, Lynx’s funk-fuelled sets have gained a reputation for smashing stereotypes as well as dance floors and, like his productions, appeal to clubbers across the spectrum. Soul:r, Creative Source, Digital Soundboy and his own imprint Detail Recordings are just some of the leading labels he’s released on, not to mention his most recent single on Ram Records; all are proof that his sound is not only fresh but diverse. Lynx has clearly demonstrated he’s not afraid to break the mould whilst staying true to his own style.

Reso has been in the extended family since ‘Slap Chop’ blew up Sick Music 2, and has been a regular contributor to Hospital since, culminating in the release of the double-10″ uniqueness, Pulse Code EP this spring. We loved his work with Civil Music and are ecstatic to have him on board.

Much love for all of our artists – welcome to the family!

OUT NOW: Logistics ‘Polyphony’ LP

Friday, July 4th, 2014

His first release since 2012′s ‘Fear Not’, the man behind some of d+b’s biggest anthems returns with his brand new long player. Having spent the last two years collaborating with big brother Dan Nu:Tone on the Nu:Logic project, Logistics takes solo control of the studio set up once more to unleash his latest monsters.

Check out the official music video for ‘Triangles’ featuring some very familiar faces.

A return to the classic Hospital sound which Logistics has helped shape; uplifting piano chords, euphoric basslines and sublime vocal chops abound, alongside acoustic guitars and luscious strings. Collaborators on this project include new talents Hugh Hardie and Maduk, veteran producer Sonic, vocalists Will Robert and Lifford, and of course brother Dan Nu:Tone.

An album of organic, d+b soul, as Hospital hits its 18th year in business Logistics brings us a reminder of his well renowned talent with an added sense of maturity in his production.

Fred V & Grafix ‘Forest Fires’ Feat. Etherwood

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

After the release of their debut album ‘Recognise’ in March the Devonshire duo follow up with their second single. ‘Forest Fires’ features the vocals of fellow rising star of drum+bass Etherwood.

Debuted by Zane Lowe on Radio One, Forest Fires encapsulates Fred V & Grafix’s ability to effortlessly gel live guitars and instruments with up to date drum+bass production and vocals to create something fresh. Even ahead of release the track has been added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist.

Remixes come from Etherwood, Taiki & Nulight , Massappeals and Loire. Etherwoods’s own take is in an alternative drum+bass re-rub. Taiki & Nulight drop the tempo and apply their deep house sensibility to the mix. Massappeals twists things up with a trap refix & Loire brings the tempo back down for a chilled finish.

Triangles’ provides the perfect antidote. Where ‘Somersaults’s is the perfect Saturday night, “Triangles” is Sunday morning. Aural salve guaranteed to lower your heart rate and sooth your soul.

Metrik ‘Want My Love’ feat. Elisabeth Troy

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

“Want my Love” features a perfect pairing between Elisabeth Troy’s distinguishable vocal and Metrik’s fine tuned production. With a minimal drop, the vocals soar over the beats creating a sing along anthem and dance floor smasher. Ahead of release the track is already receiving support across the scene and also featured it’s exclusive debut one Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.

The club mix is nothing more than a straight up drum+bass banger which is sure to tear up many dance floors and festival arenas through out the summer.

With Metrik’s debut album nearing completion, this is a strong taste of whats to come later this year. Keep your eyes peeled for more.

NEW SIGNING: Lynx

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Needing little introduction, we are very proud to announce the exclusive signing of Lynx to Hospital Records.

Portsmouth-born Lynx had his first release at the tender age of 17, back in 1996 with Southampton-based Hardcore pioneers, Ramos, Supreme and Sunset Regime. A career in music beckoned and he set about racking up many years of commercial studio experience plus a Masters degree in Audio Technology, learning his trade and developing the skills to take his sound further. Starting with work experience at Chichester based studio ‘Airtight’, Lynx worked alongside the likes of Friction, Mampi Swift, Stakka, Skynet, and Skinny where he demonstrated a hard-working attitude plus a natural aptitude at the controls and earned himself the po- sition of co-managing the studio. From his musical beginnings producing hardcore, in 2002 Lynx moved into the new, techno-infused wave of drum & bass and racked up a string of releases with Brighton based labels Underfire Recordings and Audio Blueprint (Stakka & Skynet). Tracks such as ‘Meltin Pot’ and ‘Special Agent’ were championed by Andy C, Ed Rush & Optical, Shimon and Kemal. Keen to progress and diversify his sound, Lynx collaborated with popular French DJ Flow to produce ‘Time-Out’ (Renegade Recordings, 2002). The track appeared on the first ‘Renegade Rollers’ compilation and proved a firm favourite with Radio 1’s Fabio and the legendary John Peel, giving Lynx confidence in his ability to capture the essence of a musical genre and produce drum & bass across the musical spectrum.
