Hospital Records – out now
NICE work, Matt Gresham. I get sent a lot of albums and this is a masterclass in perfect balancing.
Opener Fear Not and closer Watching The World Go By are like drum and bass bookends sandwiching a mix of dubstep and other D&B tracks which young producers would do well to listen to.
Timelapse, 2999 (Wherever You Go), Try Again and Believe In Me demonstrate how to properly use noises and sound effects without shoehorning them in where they don’t belong.
I find the album version of We Are One quite annoying but be sure to check out the Other Echoes remix which accompanies the single.
The more vocal tracks, Crystal Skies and Watching The World Go By are beautiful and really lift the album; indeed as you get into double-figures you hit a rich seam of straightforward, professional and happy drum and bass which Logistics does so well.
You’ll find a lot of these tracks featuring on Hospital Summer Drum and Bass 2012, and Logistics appearing at various Hospitality events, including Hospitality Leeds at the end of the month.
