Hospitality Drum & Bass 2011 SamplerVarious Artists
In anticipation of the Hospitality D+B 2011 compilation, Hospital presents four vinyl tracks that truly encapsulate what the Hospitality night stands for.
First up is Apex's re-lick of London Elektricitys Just One Second, the unforgettable anthem featured on 2008's Syncopated City. Those who attended Hospitality at the O2 Academy back in September will remember London Elektricity dropping this one to the delight of 4,000 ravers. This is just a taste of what is to come in Hospitality 2011.
Up next with their second cut on the Hospital imprint is Blokhe4d bringing the drum-step epic The Way Life Used To Be. With its sing-a-long vocal sample and memorable synth line, this track will be occupying the record bag of many a DJ over the course of the winter months. Hands- in-the-air business, straight up.
One of the hottest production units in drum + bass at the moment Sigma team up with Hospitals very own Logistics. With its catchy chopped-up vocal, emotional strings and an infectious bassline, Dreams 2 Reality has all the attributes to become a timeless classic. A killer combination.
Finishing up with an injection of new blood is Fred V with Simple Beginnings - his first outing on the label. There is an incredible ambience that runs throughout the track that is simultaneously intriguing, hypnotic and capable of heating up the dancefloor. Simple Beginnings provides the final piece of the jigsaw on an EP showcasing exceptional talent of both old and new.
