The Hospital Records crew has been making moves over to our side of the pond with the opening of their new LA office, and a new residency for their worldwide club event – Hospitality – launching on Wednesday, September 10th at The Complex in Glendale. In celebration of this, we’ve locked in Fred V & Grafix for a special Hospital Records edition of our guest mix series. The Exeter-based duo has built a strong rep for their dnb sound with live performances and releases like their debut album, Recognise, that dropped earlier this year. Now they’ve given us this guest mix that’s filled to the brim with jams from Logistics, London Elektricity, Camo & Krooked, a healthy offering of their own tunes, and more. Enjoy below and head out to see Fred V & Grafix headline the LA Hospitality launch in September.

Straight off of DNB heavyweight Hospital Records, the UK native Metrik delivers “Want my Love” – featuring the anthemic vocals of Elisabeth Troy atop an energetic lead and rolling bassine. With a minimal drop, the vocals soar over the beats creating a sing along anthem and dance floor smasher.
The single just dropped yesterday and has been receiving support across the board – not to mention it’s recent exclusive debut on Annie Macs BBC Radio 1 show. With Metrik’s debut album nearing completion, this is a strong taste of whats to come ahead of release later this year. Listen below and pick it up today on iTunes and Beatport!
Hospital Records boss, High Contrast, has a knack for adding his uplifting Drum N Bass flair to songs you’d never expect. The most recent example of his aptitude shines is his forthcoming remix for popular UK trio, London Grammar, which will be released as part of the Strong EP on September 1st. High Contrast clings to London Grammar vocalist Hannah’s Florence Welch-like voice while upping the tempo and adding in soaring crescendos of percussion. If you haven’t, make sure to go back and have a listen to some of High Contrast’s older remixes like those for Adele or Calvin Harris. Nostalgiaaaa.
Logistics, the legendary producer who brought the Drum and Bass community countless classics has just dropped his newest album, Fear Not.

The album changes it up continuously, switching tempos and tones while still maintaining that familiar liquid Drum and Bass feel that Logistics has perfected.
