March is proving to be a fruitful month for the posse at Hospital Records. Last week we reported that Degs was readying his debut album for the end of the month. Well ahead of that highly-anticipated LP, the label has more D&B goodies in the pipeline to tide those cravings over.
Having been one of the last artists developed on recently shelved Med School sub-label, Keeno has earned a promotion to the main roster. The success of his critically acclaimed I Wonder, Keeno did more than enough to warrant this call up. The reward is his first solo EP on Hospital Records. Spoiler alert: he hasn’t lost any of his Midas touch in the interim.
The 2-track offering features singles Troopers Peak and Old School Lane. Yet again displaying an elegant, refined version of drum & bass with more than a nod to the classic sound, the release cements Keeno as one of the genre’s most consistent producers. The A-side opens with a cinematic intro that incorporates beautiful keys, building to an atmospheric crescendo. On the flip side, things take a sinister turn for a track more accustomed to a moody dancefloor. Most importantly, each track holds their own despite being suitable for different moods.
To experience the full spectrum of D&B and roll with the rest of the Hospital Records crew, get down to Tobacco Dock on Good Friday 10th April for Hospitality Returns To the Dock. Headline sets are confirmed from Camo & Krooked, Metrik and a Special Guest TBA. Plus, Degs, DJ Lens, Dynamite MC, S.P.Y., Special Request, SP:MC, Fabio and more will all be in attendance.
Fifth release tickets are on sale now and this one is expected to sell out like previous years.
Troopers Peak/Old School Lane is out today on Hospital Records.
