Words by Dave Jenkins

“There’s no better feeling than being in the dance with your best mates and hearing a sick bassline drop. Nothing better in the world…”

Not our words; they’re the words of a buzzy young random from Bristol. He’s on his second ever rave and he’s decided to park his arse by us on some hay bales at the end of the night as we enjoy a last beer of the day and watch the happy Hospitalites bounce home through the gates. They’re walking like our new friend is talking. Situation? Vibey.

It’s been this way since the gates opened almost 12 hours ago: friendliness and positivity. It’s exactly what you should expect from any decent festival but there seemed to be an extra air of unity at this year’s Hospitality In The Park. This was potentially down to a combination of things…

@HospitalRecsLA 28.01.15: Introducing Flite and Blacklab

After the success of our first Hospital Records LA showcase back in September we’re geared up and ready for round two. Heading over from across the pond will be the man behind the countless floor-filling rollers and sunshine-smashers, Logistics. We’ll also be welcoming some homegrown talent in the form of Flite and Blacklab, both producing some incredible D+B and keeping that underground LA movement going strong.



We start with Justin Hellier aka Flite, not only a budding D+B producer but also a fully-fledged singer-songwriter. Having started writing music at the mere age of eleven Flite has made his journey through a variety of styles happily finding his home in liquid drum and bass.  Flite’s already received a great deal of attention for his liquid rollers in particular “Blue Spark” picked up by Liquicity back in 2013.

By incorporating his self-taught background in piano, ear for unique harmonies and developed vocal skills its evident Flite is growing more and more to become a versatile and polished-up producer. Although, not to be tarnished with just one brush, Flite will be returning to his studies this Spring at Virginia Tech as an Industrial Design student – a man of many talents.


Justin’s melancholic musicality has continued to make waves with his debut release on Sup Yo! “Featherfall” spotted by a little-known platform UKF and thereafter receiving a great deal of support from a number of influential figures in the scene.



This year Flite’s continuing to work hard to develop his skills and keep pushing the boundaries of his creativity. With a huge passion for moving forward the stateside scene, Flite’s just who we need to bring some liquid love to Hospital Records LA this January. Hear more from Flite HERE.



Joining Flite will be bass-loving Las Vegas-based brothers Blacklab. Firstly we have Kashim, leading in experience out of the two with an ever-evolving passion for electronic music. He’s been pumping out UK inspired sets for over a decade incorporating the biggest in Hardcore, Jungle and D+B. Kashim’s already supported some big names in the UK D+B game including Calyx & Teebee, Optiv, The Prototypes, Taxman and Tantrum Desire to name a few.

Partner in crime, Kariem began his D+B journey as a casual listener exposed to more UK-based influences from his brother. Over time his interest grew, turning into a real dedication to not only mixing but also developing his production skills. Now the pair are working hard to create a synthesis of sounds from techstep to neurofunk.

With a creative, open and experimental mindset they aim to integrate the full spectrum of D+B.  Hot off the press is a sneak preview of their brand new track “Passengers”, to hear it in full for the first time be sure to get yourself down to Complex!


Catch Flite and Blacklab alongside Logistics and MC Dino at Complex on Wednesday 28th January – final release tickets still available.
