The incredible third album from Hospital's original DnB prodigy. A lot has changed since High Contrast's debut 'True Colours' dropped in 2002 and injected a new lease of life to the DnB scene. Artists have come and gone since then, and a whole host of new producers influenced by the High Contrast sound have come through the ranks. In 2004 he proved that he was still at the top of his game with his second long player 'High Society' - another collection of anthems including the massive 'Racing Green' and 'Basement Track' and now he's back to raise the bar once again, and take his sound to new heights.
The new album 'Tough Guys Don't Dance' is released on the 1st of October 2007. The D&B producer who people that don't even like D&B will listen to, since 'High Society' High Contrast has found himself the remixer of choice for the likes of Missy Elliot, The White Stripes, Blaze and Basement Jaxx. Each of these incredible versions finding favour with Radio One - with even daytime DJs unable to stay away.
'Tough Guys' features some exciting collaborations and guest performances, from the vocal gymnastics of Jazz wizard Ian Shaw to the legendary dance diva styles of Diane Charlemagne right through to the country tinged soul searching of Linda Gale-Lewis (sister of rock & roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis no less!)
'Tough Guys' is as much music for the dancefloor as it is the soundtrack to an unwritten film. Drawing its influence from a wide range of sources, and maintaining High Contrast's appeal to fans of broad musical persuasions. This is the sound of a genre defining producer at the top of his game. Don't Sleep.
