Review: Logistics has a forthcoming EP on Hospital called Headspace, out 28th of this month, but the first single is coming right now: 'Stay True' featuring frequent collaborator Thomas Oliver on vox. It's a bit more commercial than Logistics tends to stray and we're digging it, with a no-shame, feel-good approach to every aspect of this track, from Oliver's exhortations to self-honesty to the uplifting stabs and approach to the melody. It's a proper Hospital vocal number and we're into it.
Review: A stunning release here from and up-and-coming D&B talent Rido, as he re-visits his previous "Twisted" and gives it the VIP treatment, fresh for Winter 2012. Whilst maintaining all the essential elements of the original, Rido adds further panache to the piece - think taught, terse breaks with that grouchy bassline belching beneath. The super smooth polished vocal from Thomas Oliver is given a less prominent position in the overall track, but is a perfect juxtaposition to the toughness of the beats. Another cracking release here from Metalheadz.
Review: 21 years old. How about that then? Some of us were barely out of nappies when London Elektricity first launched the imprint, some of us remember like it was yesterday. Either way, we are all united under the big flouro H and right now they're celebrating their coming of age with a humungous 70 track collection. Yes, 70! Each cut handpicked to represent the London imprint's constantly evolving but always soul-touched and groove-laden sound are 24 exclusives such as Urbandawn's insane version of Reso's "Taiga", Fred V & Grafix's titanium colab with Metrik "Tension", Serum & Inja's already-massive "Blow Dem" and Whiney's remix of TC's chop-slapping "Storm Brew". Massive. Happy birthday Hospital!
