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.

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.

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.

We welcome Lynx to the family and are very excited to unveil what the future holds for him. Be sure to watch this space….

OUT NOW: Fred V & Grafix ‘Forest Fires’ feat. Etherwood

Thursday, May 29th, 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.
