In the words of Urbandawn himself, ‘Carnival Blues‘ is where “Samba meets 174”. A homage to his Brazilian heroes, the sonic mastermind played and recorded every instrument on his latest D+B ripper. The perfect way to kick off our Hospitality House Party compilation!
Ever since the then mysterious Beatles Bootleg tore up Wembley Stadium, everybody knows the name Urbandawn. His anthem ‘Come Together’ dominated 2019 and went on to win the Drum & Bass Arena Award for ‘Best Track’. Now heralded within the drum & bass world for his razor-sharp sound design and distinctive calling card of top-shelf crunch throughout his releases, Urbandawn revisits a vocal powerhouse classic from his first album ‘Gothenburg Cluster’ on his latest single ‘Together Again (I Pray)’.
Boasting all the trademark trimmings you’d expect to find, ‘Together Again (I Pray)’ is a graceful yet powerful rework. Building on the emotive nature of the original, this 2020 edition is complete with smooth atmospherics and the original’s hair-raising vocal for a glorious melodic rush before roaring into heavyweight synthwork.
Marking the first chapter of Hospital Records’ 2020 story is the return of their flagship compilation series, ‘Sick Music 2020’. Loaded with 25 brand new tracks from the world of drum & bass, ranging from fresh original productions to exclusive new remixes and future classics from the Hospital Records family and some very special guests. The album kicks off the year with first-class sonics from the likes of London Elektricity, Kings Of The Rollers, S.P.Y, Grafix, Inja, Fred V, Unglued, Urbandawn, DRS & Dynamite, Kanine and more.
Following six studio albums of funk-driven loungecore, Hospital Records’ head honcho London Elektricity embarks on the boldest musical adventure of his 30-year career with his seventh long-player ‘Building Better Worlds’.
After dominating dancefloors worldwide with his formidable cover of ‘Come Together’, Urbandawn fuels more heat with his latest single, ‘Flashforward’. The ferocious funk and obscene levels of punch continue to set him apart from any other in the international drum & bass landscape.
As one of the founders of Japan’s drum & bass culture, Makoto is a man who needs little introduction. On his sixth studio album, ‘Tomodachi Sessions’, he presents 15-tracks of exquisite, sun-drenched drum & bass soul. Each and every track is a collaboration with a close friend, that has played a part in his twenty-year career, with the likes of DJ Marky, S.P.Y, Bop, MC Conrad, Pola & Bryson, Degs, Karina Ramage and more.
The world of classic reggae, dancehall and bashment collides with drum & bass for a set of stellar remixes on the ‘Jet Star Meets Hospital’ compilation. The album features sixteen first-class reworks from London Elektricity, S.P.Y, Danny Byrd, Nu:Tone, Urbandawn and more; all taking a 170BPM step-out on iconic reggae artists such as Barrington Levy, Alton Ellis, John Holt, Beenie Man, Horace Andy and more.
For the latest goings-ons at Hospital and to keep up-to-date with all of our artists.
