Hospital Records has been waving the flag for drum & bass since 1996, providing a home to groundbreaking artists like High Contrast, Netsky, Camo & Krooked and of course the legendary London Elektricity. As their latest offering, Hospital’s Danny Byrd has brought you a new EP that is simply massive. Accompanying both tracks Grit and Love You Like This is a stellar video that is a must watch for any fans of the Muppets. If you think that’s an odd statement, you’ll understand when you see it.
Grit is a collaboration with Roni Size and does not lack any size at all. From the moment you press play, you can already tell this one is going to rock the walls. Filtering in the percussion immediately, Danny & Roni build anticipation for a lead that is a call for everyone to go wild. The alarm-like sound signals for the audience to wake up and get moving. As you can see in the video, the Muppets (and various other animated characters) are totally digging it.
Love You Like This encompasses the drum & bass style that makes a track timeless. The melody takes you away with piano, vocals and clapping bringing up the rear. The rolling bass during the drop pumps energy into the mix while the synths in the background keep the melody present in all sections. The Byrd man does not disappoint with either of these mixes. Head on over to Beatport to snatch these up for your collection.
