Hospital Records are world-renowned for the music they put out and the same goes for the events they host. After the roaring success of last year, hosting a DnB party inside the Grade One listed Tobacco Dock for the first time, the London imprint are set to do it all again. The way in which the entire DnB spectrum is represented in such grandiose fashion is just part of the lure with this event. Once inside you can instantly see the wonderfully preserved history, with the skeleton of the old shopping centre on full view, with open roofed areas and winding walkways dotted around the venue. Across the three different areas every style is masterfully represented, whether that be jungle with Randall’s spectacular interpretation, the most sumptuous liquid display courtesy of Etherwood or the Astrophonica showcase and their fondness to the darker and heavier sounds.
Ask anybody that likes liquid who their top five favourite artists are and you are certain to hear Etherwood’s name nearly every time. This man has been responsible for creating some of the most tranquil sounds over the years, presenting the mellower side of DnB in it’s most glorious format. When Hospital announced the Med School maestro would be making a debut live performance, there was certainly increased anticipation for the event, with people fascinated to see his latest album presented in a distinctly beautiful manner.
Micky Finn & Aphrodite
There are certain artist you can always attribute to the early beginnings of a genre and this duo fit that criteria for jungle with aplomb. Both individuals built up an esteemed reputation for releasing some of the most vibrant records, consistently adopting a pioneering approach within the genre. Set to play a special set, celebrating the best tracks to come out of their Urban Takeover imprint over the past three decades, it is inescapable this duo will tear the roof off at Tobacco Dock.
Camo & Krooked
Whilst this Austrian duo are widely regarded as true magicians owing to the often futuristic sound to emerge from their studio, they have also built up legendary status for their performances on the decks. The way they are able to effortlessly relay the most mind-boggling double drops at a terrifying rate, combined with their simply brilliant bootlegs make their sets a real joy to behold. Prepare yourself for a colossal climax to the day’s proceedings when this pair close ‘The Great Gallery’ stage.
When you realize that two esteemed brands like Undivide and Eatbrain were responsible for curating ‘The Car Park’ stage it is clear to see why they selected musicians who take great pleasure in providing some of the heaviest dnb b2b sets. Intent on providing a stage which offers a comprehensive tilt to the darker side of bass music, you will not be disappointed when the trio of Fracture, Lewis James and Sully take to the decks. Alongside one of the most supercharged sets this unique array of artists will also provide one of the most experimental performances.
When you consider just how high-octane a set by Metrik is, characterized by ferocious energy, it still seems strange to think he burst onto the scene with a masterful reputation of liquid. Growing up on an eclectic mix of music including Eric Prydz, Depeche Mode and the Prodigy, it is always a joy to watch the Londoner share that love with a crowd, when he unleashes any one of his gargantuan remixes. The one guarantee you can count on with this musician is his ability to project warmth and exuberance courtesy of the way his music comprises a subtle blend of uplifting vocals and vibrant melodies.
