Sub 150: Dubstep, Drumstep and the Bass BetweenVarious Artists
Ramping the sub-bass up and easing the tempo down, Sub 150 is the brand new download compilation from Hospital Records. Expect dubstep, drumstep and everything in between in this immense 20-track offering as Sub 150 delves into the medical records of releases past and recruits fresh blood for releases future. Known primarily as a drum+bass label, there have always been a plethora of other genres and styles on offer on the Hospital, with releases extending deep and wide into what has become known more recently as ?bass music?, from some of the pioneers of what has become known as ?dubstep? (the likes of Phuturistix and Darqwan), to the more recent alternative offerings from big guns Netsky, Logistics and Camo & Krooked.
Featuring signed Hospital artists, our extended Med School family, along with other likeminded names Blokhe4d, N3gus, Randomer, Martsman and CLS and newcomers such as Other Echoes (Nu:Tone and Logistics?s youngest brother no less!) - flavours are varied, exciting and always unique.
Sub 150 starts with Blokhe4ds refined, and yet punishing monster Zelda and takes us on a journey under the 150bpm radar where we encounter such gems as Darqwans Three Note Blue which oozes class, the infamous Barbarix remix of Mistabishis - Printer Jam and another Mistabishi classic White Collar Grime is brought out from the vaults. Bristol based N3gus steps up with Carasel for the MCs first ever recording on the rambunctious, in your face Snakes. The Guardians Band of the week Submerse brings the classic garage flavours with his superb This Time Youre Wrong, while Other Echoes, the youngest of the Gresham brothers, makes his debut on Hospital with spaced out dubstep riddim Quantum Spectrum (feat. Tim Parker).
Proving theres always been more to Hospital than meets the eye, this collection of past and present hits plunges below the 150bpm mark. Prepare to be immersed.
