The long-standing label continues to champion the very best in exciting new drum and bass each and every year, which along with their Hospitality events brand, sees them play some of the biggest stages around the globe. If a new track is out on Hospital Records, then it’s guaranteed to be a good one.
After taking over the globe, Hospital are set to take the next step in their global dominance with their very first stand-alone festival – Hospitality in The Park. Taking place in the city where it all began at Finsbury Park on the 24th September, it’s packed with the very best in drum and bass, along with a stunning array of independent food vendors. hot air balloon rides and more. Taking it to the city which they still call home, it is sure to be a true landmark moment for a community of dance fanatics.
One of those names taking to the stage at Hospitality in The Park is Fred V & Grafix, the revered duo who recently released their second studio album “Oxygen” in June – and ahead of the huge date itself, they’ve pulled together the definitive Hospital Records playlist of the very best the label has to offer and what to expect at Hospitality In The Park.
Etherwood – Light My Way Home (Feat. Eva Lazarus)
One of our favourite vocal tunes from the last few years, pure ‘hands in the air’ vibes.
Metrik – Want My Love (Feat. Elizabeth Troy) –
This always gets a great reaction, love the minimal drop. I remember seeing Tony (London Elek) playing it at the last Hospitality BBQ at Studio 338, one of the biggest crowd reactions of the day!
High Contrast – Brief Encounter
One of our all time favourite tunes from Lincoln. Amazing use of sampling throughout the tune, love the strings and vocal. Can’t believe it’s over a decade old now, would love him to make a 2016 mix.
Fred V & Grafix – Stay Here
We’re quite proud of this one. We think it has a good balance of working well on the dancefloor but being sonically interesting enough to anywhere.
London Elektricity – Vapour Trails
Another tune from over a decade ago, but still one of our favourite Hospital tunes. Super simple hypnotic reversed pianos and epic horns.
S.P.Y – Take Control
We featured this in our essential mix, love it. Carlos knows exactly how to make a really simple tune that still works super well on the dancefloor. Banger.
Fred V & Grafix – Major Happy
This still gets a huge reaction on the dancefloor. Still one of our biggest tunes, four years later!
Keeno – Nocturne
William bringing the Thomas Newman vibes to drum ‘n’ bass. The intro is so good that the tune doesn’t really need a drop, drop is still sick though!
Logistics – Lost in U
Love this so much! Super catchy emosh vocal and calibre style production makes this an absolute winner.
Fred V & Grafix – Altitude – Feat. Amy J Pryce
Have been closing our sets with it recently. Amy’s performance really makes the tune, combined with the lush piano chords.
Hospitality in The Park will take place at Finsbury Park on Saturday 24th September. For more information and tickets head to http://www.hospitalityinthepark.london/
