Hospitality London 2014 – Celebrating 18 years of Hospital Records
We are celebrating Hospital Records 18th birthday in 2014, so in honour of this milestone we are taking an emotional trip down memory lane by revisiting iconic venues across London that have helped to make Hospitality events what they are today.
February 7th we head up to Building Six (previously the famous Matter nightclub of the 02 Arena). “The best club in the world” according to London Elektricity during our Matter residency, we are excited to return to this world class venue, of course we will be bringing a world class lineup, soundsystem and atmosphere… as standard.
Then on May 4th we will be stepping even further back into the history books for a one-off spectacular at our beloved Heaven – a maze of dancefloors, bars and sound systems located under the arches of Charing Cross station in the heart of central London, a nightclub engraved on the heart of British rave culture. Those who remember the original Hospitality events at Heaven will know these were really special occasions, and we aim to recapture that vibe in 2014 with the best artists and the friendliest crowd. And for those who never made it to Heaven all those years ago, this is your chance to experience an integral piece of Hospitality history.
Both events promise to be something to saviour, completely unique whilst including everything you love about Hospitality. For this reason we have come up with a ticket that gets you into both, click combo ticket, and we will see you there!

‘Loving You Is Easy’ shows us even more soul and disco style from the boys, and has become a centrepiece of their DJ sets, as well as radio tracklistings across the airwaves.
Alongside the original tempo version there are remixes from S.P.Y who ups the twists up both genre and tempo pairing an infectious garage bassline under skittering d&b backing, Infuze strips things back with some minimal dub sensibility while up-coming Belgian star Pomrad broadens the genre-pool further with his unique maximal sound.
As if all that wasn’t enough the package is rounded off with the apocalyptic ‘Armageddon’ featuring the signature Camo & Krooked sound. Heavy industrial synths build and build to a riotous drop with pile driving drums and shuddering sub-bass.
Camo & Krooked are back with their new album “Zeitgeist”. This belter is jam-packed with disco, French house and minimal influences, which are merged together with the signature Camo & Krooked sound to form an awe-inspiring 15-track package.
Make sure you check out the official video for Camo & Krooked’s new single ‘Move Around’ above.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… prepare to witness something that’s never been seen before at Brixton Academy on Friday 27th September. Join us for the landmark Hospitality event “The Final.”
Taking place at 9pm will be performances from some of the scene’s top brawlers as they battle it out for dominance of their respective weights and regions as we prepare to see who will be crowned champion of Brixton.
Earlybirds for this one off spectacular sold out within a record time of 48hours, Round Two tickets swiftly followed suit and Round 3 tickets are nearly all gone too!
The next single from Camo & Krooked in the run up to the release of their brand new album ‘Zeitgeist’ is the exceptional dancefloor detonator ‘Move Around’.The track is classic Camo & Krooked 2.0 – at once uplifting, energetic and innovative to the core.
Kicking off with a flurry of piano keys and a shimmying vocal (courtesy of the award winning Ian Shaw), the track is underpinned by a quirky, warping hook which will get inside your head. Accompanying the original tune is a radio edit, instrumental and a remix by French house producer Uppermost.
This single will be available in digital stores on September 9th. Expect to hear a lot more from Camo & Krooked in the coming weeks as the ‘Zeitgeist’ album is set for release September 30th.
Entering into groundbreaking new territory, Camo & Krooked ride the wave of disco fever and carve a fresh new aesthetic which fits their sonic palette and sound engineering wizardry all based around a great vocal hook performed by Pat Fulgoni. ‘All Night’ sees a marked departure from the ruckus of “Cross The Line”, proving once again just how versatile these producers are.
