As the official boss-man of seminal drum and bass label Hospital Records, looking after heavyweight artists such as Camo & Krooked, Netsky & High Contrast, you could forgive Tony Coleman for resting on his laurels.
Not the case though. London Elektricity as an entity is now at album number 9! A phenomenal achievement for any musician. We know LE for producing some of the most soulful, instrumental and musical drum and bass around, as well as creating one of the original drum and bass live acts. Very few have followed since.
Are We There Yet?
I think a lot of us are still half expecting artists such as London Elektricity to eventually be left behind by the impossibly future defining sounds of let’s say Noisia, Mefjus or Rockwell. Prepare to be pleasantly surprised. This is a lot more than just another soulful album from the Hospital head-honcho. Of course we have the vintage sound represented in tracks such as “Tape Loops” with Hospital collaborator Hugh Hardie & “Swivel”. However the collaboration with new-boy on the label Keeno & Emer Dineen shows a more technical side to the LE sound that we rarely get to see.
