After a two year hiatus ‘Hospitality’ is back, and bigger than ever! This massive fifth instalment comes fresh from winning “Best Club Night” (for the fourth year running!) at the Drum&Bass Arena awards.
The debut release from Hospital Records’ latest exclusive signing Lynx. This Portsmouth based produced is known to many within the drum+bass scene for his unique, rhythmic, anthemic productions, and for those who don’t know – be assured you’ll be hearing a lot more from him over the coming months. This EP of four stand out cuts introduces the diverse sound of a producer at the top of his game.
We’ve just signed Lynx to inpatient care. If you don’t know, then you should! Check the playlist to hear a little bit of what Lynx is all about:
Like they say about buses, you wait ages for one and three come along at once! Hospital are excited to announce the worldwide signing of not one but three new artists – Krakota, Lynx and Reso.
Krakota joins the surgery after ear-catching releases on Critical, Ingredients and Integral, but Hospital fans should know him well from his contributions to this year’s Hospital: We Are 18 album. Expect bass heavy, break laden productions.
Reinventing drum+bass from the ground up, Lynx’s funk-fuelled sets have gained a reputation for smashing stereotypes as well as dance floors and, like his productions, appeal to clubbers across the spectrum. Soul:r, Creative Source, Digital Soundboy and his own imprint Detail Recordings are just some of the leading labels he’s released on, not to mention his most recent single on Ram Records; all are proof that his sound is not only fresh but diverse. Lynx has clearly demonstrated he’s not afraid to break the mould whilst staying true to his own style.
Reso has been in the extended family since ‘Slap Chop’ blew up Sick Music 2, and has been a regular contributor to Hospital since, culminating in the release of the double-10″ uniqueness, Pulse Code EP this spring. We loved his work with Civil Music and are ecstatic to have him on board.
Much love for all of our artists – welcome to the family!
Needing little introduction, we are very proud to announce the exclusive signing of Lynx to Hospital Records.
Portsmouth-born Lynx had his first release at the tender age of 17, back in 1996 with Southampton-based Hardcore pioneers, Ramos, Supreme and Sunset Regime. A career in music beckoned and he set about racking up many years of commercial studio experience plus a Masters degree in Audio Technology, learning his trade and developing the skills to take his sound further. Starting with work experience at Chichester based studio ‘Airtight’, Lynx worked alongside the likes of Friction, Mampi Swift, Stakka, Skynet, and Skinny where he demonstrated a hard-working attitude plus a natural aptitude at the controls and earned himself the po- sition of co-managing the studio. From his musical beginnings producing hardcore, in 2002 Lynx moved into the new, techno-infused wave of drum & bass and racked up a string of releases with Brighton based labels Underfire Recordings and Audio Blueprint (Stakka & Skynet). Tracks such as ‘Meltin Pot’ and ‘Special Agent’ were championed by Andy C, Ed Rush & Optical, Shimon and Kemal. Keen to progress and diversify his sound, Lynx collaborated with popular French DJ Flow to produce ‘Time-Out’ (Renegade Recordings, 2002). The track appeared on the first ‘Renegade Rollers’ compilation and proved a firm favourite with Radio 1’s Fabio and the legendary John Peel, giving Lynx confidence in his ability to capture the essence of a musical genre and produce drum & bass across the musical spectrum.
