Makoto – Merchant Blessing (feat. MC Conrad)

Buy or Stream ‘Tomodachi Sessions’ here: https://Makoto.lnk.to/TomodachiSessionsyc

As one of the founders of Japan’s drum & bass culture, Makoto is a man who needs little introduction. On his sixth studio album, ‘Tomodachi Sessions’, he presents 15-tracks of exquisite, sun-drenched drum & bass soul. Each and every track is a collaboration with a close friend, that has played a part in his twenty-year career, with the likes of DJ Marky, S.P.Y, Bop, MC Conrad, Pola & Bryson, Degs, Karina Ramage and more.

The uplifting summer number, ‘Shine On Through’ is a collaboration with the young breakthrough producer Mountain from Osaka, Japan. Makoto’s signature sound is brought into 2019, soaked in a warm rolling bassline, energetic synths and topped off with vocals from the outstanding singer/songwriter Karina Ramage.

The instrumental masterpiece ‘Kosa’ features Med School’s orchestral maverick Keeno and is the perfect combination of powerful soul, epic strings and dynamic drumwork.

‘Morning Sunrise’, is a majestic dose of drum & bass and is the team effort of Makoto, Danny Wheeler and G Force. It also brings in the vocal powerhouse Blu James, also known from the Basement Jaxx classic ‘Red Alert’.

Having gained respect for the quality of his music since the days of LTJ Bukem’s Good Looking Records, Makoto has gone from strength to strength with an impressive discography that includes seminal classics like ‘Golden Girl’ ft. MC Conrad. Makoto can be found at a number of events and festivals this summer, including Hospitality In The Park 2019, Sun & Bass, Liquicity, Standon Calling, and more.

London Elektricity – Build A Better World (feat. Emer Dineen) Official Video

Buy or Stream ‘Building Better Worlds’ here: https://LondonElek.lnk.to/BuildingBetterWorldsyc

Following six studio albums of funk-driven loungecore, Hospital Records’ head honcho London Elektricity embarks on the boldest musical adventure of his 30-year career with his seventh long-player ‘Building Better Worlds’.

It began in a Forest Hill cafe in 2017 where London Elektricity adoringly browsed through a series of Benjamin Beech’s photography of perfectly untouched, derelict buildings and towns in Japan, Taiwan and China. “Many of the images show what has been, what could have been and what will be. The duality of beauty and melancholia within appealed to me immensely.” Each track was married to a photo, to join the sights to sounds from each of his tales of ‘Building Better Worlds.’

Leading the voyage is the orchestral masterpiece ‘Final View From The Rooftops’, that’s been 13 years in the making and is the “most unusual piece of D+B” [he’s] ever made”, featuring the incredible operatic talent of Cydnei B. ‘Build A Better World’ is a smooth drum & bass sonnet with the vocals of Hospital family favourite Emer Dineen. “The beauty of this song lies in its simplicity, but also its duality. I’ll leave you to work out what the lyrics are really about… They are some of the darkest lyrics I’ve come across in years.”

Another special moment is the feature of London Elektricity’s youngest son, The Secretary-General. The talented nine-year-old takes no ‘Time To Think’ as he flawlessly flows through Inja’s lyrics with the ever-vibrant MC following suit, bringing the track full-circle across generations.

London Elektricity is the mastermind behind classic Hospital albums such as ‘Pull The Plug’, ‘Syncopated City’, ‘Are We There Yet?’, and ‘Yikes’. His latest body of work delves into uncharted depths for a very personal and expressive collection of tracks where drum & bass and live instrumentation meet. London Elektricity can be found showcasing this latest chapter with tours in China, Japan, the UK and Europe throughout 2019.

‘Building Better Worlds’ is available as a special limited edition, 36-page lyric-book complete with an in-depth narrative for each track and a 3 x clear vinyl, on sale exclusively from the Hospital Shop.

Unglued – Born In ’94 (feat. MC Conrad) [Official Music Video]

Buy or stream Unglued ‘Born In ’94 (feat. MC Conrad) here:
https://Unglued.lnk.to/BornIn94yb

It all began with his uncle’s donated crates of early jungle records, now Hospital’s infamous young-gun Unglued serves up his own instalment of dancefloor warfare. ‘Born In ‘94’ is his homage to the golden era and is certain to pack in a crowd with its serious sub-bass and summer festival feel, topped with the legendary vocals of MC Conrad from a classic ‘93 tape pack.

It’s matched up with B-side ‘Malware’, a collaboration with Neosignal head-honcho Phace, born out of Unglued’s visit to Hamburg. A swarm of industrial synths meet a gritty bassline to tunnel a path of tear-out techy D+B savagery.

Having amassed huge support from his earlier productions including his monumental remix of High Contrast’s ‘If We Ever’, Unglued continues to go strength to strength with back to back bookings every weekend across the globe. This summer you can catch him at Glastonbury, NASS, Hospitality On Beach 2019, Nozstock, Rampage, Let It Roll, Boomtown and Hospitality In The Park 2019.

Available on a black and yellow marbled 12” vinyl, digital and streaming platforms.

Etherwood feat Anile x Degs – Bear’s Breeches (New Lanes Sprayout)

Buy or stream ‘Degs – Mixtape Sprayout’ here: https://Degs.lnk.to/MixtapeSprayoutyb

NEW LANES

Writing intercepts,
it starts off the dome then I type it in my phone,
flashbacks interject

Creating every day,
I use my words to try and block myself from stress,
although it’s working less.

I was feeling like my soul’s barking,
when I sat and thought about it
every second passed I got no answer,
and still i just work for the comeback
brothers wanna know my pain without asking
don’t wanna come to terms with it
and on the roads you know we don’t get this plaster
gimme the food ‘cos I’m starving,

I’m in my head and I was sparring,
and yeah I know I got people that I love
and I don’t wanna be a martyr,
trying to win a battle on my own
avoiding all of this scarring
heads wanna criticise it’s so jarring
feeling like I’ve lit the flame and i’m charring,

Like any person I’m hurting
but on the microphone I’m just searching
trying to find a wave in sound I want surfing,
new lanes in my life so I’m merging into them,

and I’m merging into zen,
‘cos i’m finally in a place where
accepting the shit’s not a burden
nothing ain’t certain come to the surface

So I went out with that mindset
but the first days were quite hard,
but I’m telling my brain to catch comfort
‘cos life’s full of these paths brother,

I don’t give a fuck about the scars,
VSOP with my dargs, bun at my yard,
stay on a level but never get charged,
feeling benevolent eh

The past is irrelevant,
never succumb to the elements,
and stand firm with your patience
‘cos relationships are quite delicate
and be strong in ambition
cos life’s short we’re just skeletons
through hard times we mark signs of strength,
setting a precedent eh

Yeah,
I’m speaking with evidence,
but the fact is I’m not sure myself
fake confidence and intelligence
and the fact is if you overthink
it’s hampering your development, yeah

Still I got a long time ‘till these problems fade away
Swimming in a strong tide yet my resolve’s here to stay, yeah.

Don’t be afraid of the change,
my ethos is moving through space,
on a shuttle flight

Don’t be afraid of the heights,
we’re climbing to aim for the prize.

New lanes

Still I got a long time ‘till these problems fade away
Swimming in a strong tide yet my resolve’s here to stay, yeah.
