Celebrating an enormous fifteen years in the ride, premier D&B label Hospital Records bring us a stunning compilation album to round off the year. Fifteen brand new, unreleased tracks, including VIPs, remixes and original material from the likes of Logistics, Netsky, Danny Byrd and more feature, with highlights such as Nu:Tone's superb remix of Adele - "Rolling In The Deep", a VIP of High Contrast's iconic anthem "If We Ever" and the seminal "Song In The Key Of Knife" by London Elektricity. There's also a "History Of Hospital" mix from Cyantific, which dips in to all the old favourites and seminal moments from throughout the label's rich and illustrious history, plus a bonus digital mix from Tomahawk.
Hospital Loungecore Classics Mix (Mixed By London Elektricity) - (1:46:10)
Hospital Records come up trumps once again with their immense 28-track digital-only compilation of "Loungecore Classics" which delves into the back catalogue and brings out some forgotten gems. Technically, "Loungecore" refers to the body of work that defined Hospital's early output, at a time when the label founders were fusing jungle and D&B and producing analogue lounge music at D&B tempo with fast beats - according to label boss London Elektricity. The album is a stand out collection of tracks which fall into this category and includes tracks by IZIT, Peter Nice Trio, Landslide as well as Netsky, High Contrast, Logistics and Nu:Tone + much more.
It's about time the British summertime was heralded by the return of one of Hospital Records' most popular series of compilations. Bringing the sunshine to drum & bass this year are some incredible names, from S.P.Y, Nu:Logic, Wilkinson, Phace, Misanthrop, Fred V & Grafix, Noisia, The Upbeats...the list goes on and on. For 29 tracks. Seriously. Also featuring are the darlings of experimental drum and bass Ivy Lab, the musical collaboration between Sabre, Stray and Halogenix. The biggest release this summer from one of the biggest labels in the game, you'd be mad to miss this!
