Hospital Records proudly present their brand new ‘Ultrasounds’ release series, shining a spotlight on some of the most exciting drum & bass artists outside of the NHS roster. Multitalented producer and DJ, Villem kickstarts the series! No stranger to Hospital and Med School with the popular releases ‘We Had A Song’, ‘Harp Of Gold’ and his ‘Shimmer’ EP, Villem continuously proves himself to be an unsung hero of the D&B scene. The Ipswich-born sound-supplier has a reputation as one of the most versatile producers in the game, seamlessly switching his sound from jungle to liquid and is well-known for injecting his signature funk and soul twist to create undeniable dancefloor bangers.
Over the last decade, Villem has also released on leading labels like Metalheadz, Spearhead, Fokuz and more. His signature production has seen him rack up support from legendary figures like dBridge, Alix Perez, London Elektricity and Doc Scott. Plus, alongside creating magic in the studio, Villem tutors drum & bass production and runs his own label imprint MURKT.
Covering ‘Last One Standing’ by the psychedelic soul band Monophonics, Villem supplies summery sonics with funk and ska influences featuring a soulful vocal delivery from Nottingham-born singer Tom Wardle. This one is guaranteed to be the festival soundtrack of 2022.
Crisp drum work and serenading melodies lay the foundation for vibey reggae dub track ‘Day Equals Night’. This halftime banger is a further exploration into Villem’s boundless production and tastemaking abilities.
The final track ‘Slow Burn’ sees Villem go into darker territories as he builds the track up into a delicious deep roller. He crafts up fast drums, atmospheric pads, heavenly piano chords and flirtatious synths that will transcend listeners into another realm…this one’s a slow burner!
Keep an eye out for who else Hospital have got in store for the rest of their Ultrasounds series throughout 2022…
