Known worldwide as one of the key independent labels championing the current sound of UK dance music, Hospital Records has long been regarded as a label that helped move drum + bass out of the late 90s doldrums and usher in a more youthful, vibrant and above all accessible era of the genre’s evolution.

This compilation draws deep into the back catalogue for some of the hidden gems and underground classics which whose influence on a new wave of producers helped shape the sound of drum + bass today.
