HOSPITALITY RETURNS TO BRIXTON

Hospitality Returns to O2 Academy Brixton: B-Complex

B-Complex has been part of the Hospital family for more years than we can remember! Last joining us at our sold-out Building Six show in May and now we have the pleasure of having her down for our massive return to the O2 Academy Brixton!

For those who don’t know, B-Complex is Slovakia’s answer to drum & bass. Beginning to mess around with music at the mere age of 12, wading through hardcore, trance, downbeat and hiphop, B-Complex then came to be in 2002. The pivotal ‘Beautiful Lies’ anthem was released on Hospital Records in 2008 and since she has been playing to huge crowds across the globe.

 

From the oldest to the youngest D+B fan, we welcome anyone and everyone with open arms to join the Hospital family. Hospitality dancefloors are all about the feel-good atmosphere and love of the music. Earlier this year B-Complex announced her transformation to Matia, the female form of an already wonderful and supremely talented human. We are incredibly honoured to host Matia’s debut UK set, standing strong and proud, representing for all of the female DJs and transgender community!

There’s a million reasons why we can’t wait for B-Complex to step up the decks, but we’ll stick with the most obvious. Imagine the feeling when we hear ‘Beautiful Lies’ played out across the O2 Academy Brixton! This stone cold classic still stands as one of the most popular tracks Hospital Records’ has ever released and there’s no wonder why. Take a listen below and take yourself to the middle of the crowd!

“I am excited to return to Brixton, the show itself is always a pleasure, but so is the whole event, walking in the crowd and have such positive responses, every time I return to UK I feel humbled and motivated. I am thankful for all the support from whole Hospital but especially to Tony the way he took the news was priceless for me. I’m happy to be able to just be myself and if someone expects me to go soft, just because of makeup and dresses, think again 😉 I want my show to have all colors of the dnb rainbow, its gonna be hard, energetic, surprising but with a heart. I’ll play new tunes, classics, and I’ll surprise you too. This night I’m gonna have myself a real good time!”  – B-Complex

And here’s the first taste of new music from B-Complex!

 

Catch B-Complex alongside the rest of our massive line-up on 29th April at O2 Academy Brixton. Tickets are flying so don’t sleep!

Hospitality at Building Six 01.05.15: Spectrasoul


We’re very excited to welcome Spectrasoul to room two for our huge return to Building Six this May! With their second album ‘The Mistress’ dropping on June 7th, there’s never a better time to catch the guys in action. We caught up with the two Shogun warriors, check out what they had to say and have a listen to their recent 60 minute mix for Mista Jam on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

Did you guys have a good time at Hospitality Manchester? How was it going back-to-back with Etherwood for the first time? 
Yeah it was a lot of fun. It was an interesting dynamic between us and it was cool to play alongside someone with such a remarkable beard (and good music taste).

 
(Quite the beard indeed)

 

What sets apart the crowd at Hospitality from other shows?
Well, this isn’t to diss other nights, Hospitality is usually full of people who are there to dance rather than to spot the latest tunes. They’re there to have a good time at all costs. That sure makes for a good party.

 

Are you guys looking forward to the Building six show in May? What’s your favourite thing about Building Six as a venue?
Yes absolutely. The last time we played there was a year or so ago for a Skrillex gig and that was pretty nuts so looking forward to heading back there. The best thing about Building Six is probably the sound system. It’s got some serious weight to it. Always good to test new tunes on a big rig.

 

Your recent single ‘Always’ / ‘I Don’t Mind’ has already been really well received – were you anxious prior to the release after keeping quiet for a couple of years? 
Kinda yeah. Its the first snip from the new album so thats always a bit scary. We’re really pleased that it’s gone down well both in the clubs and radio — it sets us up nicely for what’s to come.

 

 

Will we all get to hear a sneak preview of any new material in room two?
 Definitely! Obviously the album is coming, so those tunes are on heavy rotation. We’ve also got a big remix in the pipeline that will be getting a spin too.

We had some Hospitality soldiers send in some questions, here’s a select few:

Luke Potter asked ‘Who’s Ben?’
We made ‘Ben’ around the time that Ben Westbeech/ Breach made ‘Jack’. We made ‘Ben’ as a tongue-in-cheek response after we found the ‘Ben’ sample. (One of us is called Jack, for those of you who don’t know!)

 

 

Alex Feuell asked ‘Which one tune made you think you had to make D+B?’ 
Jack — The first tune that hooked me was DJ SS’s ‘Rollidge’. My dad brought some drum and bass tape packs back from school one day (he was a teacher) and gave me them to listen to. It was on the Micky Finn tape. It was the edits that did it for me.

 

Dave — Probably ‘Breaking Free’ by Slipmatt. The first track on the first Mixtape I ever got my hands on. That was the catalyst.

 

Matt ‘BassBook’ asked  ‘Can you please drop your remix of ‘Hold Your Breath’ in your 1st May Hospitality set?’
We’ve got a lot of new music to play in our sets at the moment but we’ll do our best to squeeze it in.
