The seventeenth edition of Hospital Records exclusive ‘Classic Symptoms’ series sees four originals from the label’s celebratory 25th anniversary compilation ‘H25PITAL’ pressed to an extremely limited vinyl run. CS17 is home to Etherwood’s ‘The Time Is Here At Last (feat. Hybrid Minds)’, ‘Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy’ by Syncopix, Nu:Logic’s ‘New Technique’ and ‘Hindsight’ by Blame. First up is Etherwood’s ‘The Time Is Here At Last’ featuring powerhouse drum & bass duo Hybrid Minds. Initially released on his self-titled debut album ‘Etherwood’ on Med School back in 2013, the track has since been remixed by Mitekiss for Hospital Records’ 25th-anniversary compilation. Featuring Etherwood’s very own ethereal vocals and guitar playing, this is a timeless liquid drum & bass classic. Throwing it back to 2004, Syncopix’s loungecore anthem ‘Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy’ renowned for its euphoric strings and chugging drumwork is officially back on wax in 2021. Originally released on the ‘Weapons Of Mass Creation’ compilation 17 years ago, Bristol-based DJ & producer Euphonique gave it the serious remix treatment as part of the ‘H25PITAL’ release earlier this year. Hospital’s pillar artists and sibling duo Nu:Logic (Nu:Tone & Logistics) head up the B-side with their legendary ‘New Technique’ released in 2010. Garnering DJ support from the likes of Fabio, High Contrast, Danny Byrd and London Elektricity over the years and a remix from former Hospital Records Women In Drum & Bass mentee Stay-C, this new-wave jungle slammer is exclusively pressed and available on vinyl for a limited run. Acoustic arpeggios and a rolling bassline, Blame steps up with his infamous ‘Hindsight’ taken from ‘The Friendly Fire’ EP which hit the shelves for the first time in 2008. Championed by High Contrast in his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, the tune was also remixed by the one and only DJ Marky as part of Hospital’s quarter-century celebrations. Don’t sleep on securing your extremely limited press of four Hospital classics. This one is for the serious collectors - once they’re gone, they’re gone.
