It’s no secret that over the past fourteen years, Hospital Records has created a sound totally unique in the Drum and Bass scene, and they take the same mentality when sculpting their Hospitality club nights. So upon hearing of the release of Hospitality Drum and Bass 2010, I knew exactly what to expect, something typically Hospital.
Starting strong with Netsky’s herculean track Secret Agent, we are then taken on a journey through the various weapons Hospitality have at their disposal. Including the vocal based and more soulful sounds of Danny Byrd’s Sweet Harmony, and the highly anticipated VIP of B-Complex’s Beautiful Lies. Tracks such as London Electricity – Just One Second (Apex Remix), and High Contrast’s collaboration with Underworld atypically named Scribble fitting the canon of a hospital track.
In distinction to this sound, Hospital also includes a jump up element with tracks such as Reso’s remix of Your Revolution by The Qemists, and infectious Electro beats from Camo and Krooked’s History of The Future.
The album feels like Tony Colemans personal track list, and a possible glimpse into the future of Hospital Records.
