HIGH CONTRAST:
The name High Contrast needs no introduction any more... though when a young, fresh-faced Lincoln Barrett signed on the dotted line back in 2000 he was a complete unknown. Signed on the strength of his mini-disc demos, the Welsh wonder has smashed his way through the D+B scene and has become one of its iconic and much respected heroes.

High Contrast's debut long player "True Colours" was released on Hospital to massive critical acclaim in June 2002, featuring tracks such as "Return To Forever", "Global Love" and "Make It Tonight", it has become a modern day classic for D+B fans new and old. In 2003 he was featured on Radio 1's Essential Mix and in autumn 2004, the massive "High Society" LP was released, an album which features the anthemic singles "Twilights Last Gleaming" and "Racing Green" and was voted as one of the top 3 jungle albums of the last 10 years by Knowledge Magazine. Then, in 2005 High Contrast mixed the 25th installment in the prestigious Fabriclive series to wide critical acclaim. 2007 saw the High Contrast success story continue, with the gargantuan single "If We Ever" all over Radio One, followed by arguably his finest album yet "Tough Guys Don't Dance" and winning the BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix of the year.

Riding high on the wave of success following "Tough Guys...", it was straight into 2008 with huge remixes of Utah Saint's "Something Good", Adele's "Hometown Glory" and Eric Prydz's monster hit "Pjanoo". As a result, High Contrast has swiftly become the remixer of choice for many labels inside and outside of the drum+bass community. 2010 saw High Contrast studio-bound with rave legends Underworld for collaborative track “Scribble” plus Axwell's Ibizan anthem "I Found You".With High Contrast sitting firmly at dance music's top table, in 2009 he became one of a very rare number indeed, a current recording artist to have released a “best of” album - in the form of "Confidential", a massive double CD taking in the high points of his first three albums as well as all of his seminal remixes.

Fast forward to 2011, and High Contrast has not only delivered an immense VIP of the iconic "If We Ever" for the "Fifteen Years of Hospital Records" album, but he has returned from a massive summer headlining at some of the world's biggest festivals - Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, Global Gathering - as well as touring everywhere from Hospitality Miami to Hospitality Ibiza! In October, he released his first original material for nearly five years. Teaming up with Tiesto and Underworld for "The First Note Is Silent", this is the first single taken from his forthcoming album "The Agony & The Ecstasy", due for release in 2012.

Alongside the music, High Contrast is also an avid filmaker, having studied film making at Newport, he recently directed, filmed and edited the video for "The First Note Is Silent". You can read his film, tour and music related ramblings over on www.highlycontrasting.com

CAMO & KROOKED: Austrian duo Reinhard Rietsch and Markus Wagner, otherwise known as Camo & Krooked have quickly become one of the hottest production outfits in Europe. Working together since 2007 they were soon being hailed as “one of the biggest talents in Drum + Bass” by the mighty Grooverider and have gone on to fulfil this accolade since signing to Hospital Records in 2010, winning not one, not two, but three awards in the Drum & Bass Arena Awards 2011 for "Best Producer", "Best Video" and "Best Album".

The Viennese pair have created a whirl of dancefloor anthems since they emerged onto the scene a few years back. On Hospital Records they have have brought us soulful, sultry tracks like massive hit single "Turn Up The Music" alongside raw power of smashers like “Climax” and in autumn 2011, they released their first album on Hospital "Cross The Line"; a fourteen-track rollercoaster ride of emotions, veering between polished vocal-led beauties to filthy tear-out monsters, which firmly establishes Camo & Krooked outside the D+B sphere, as they delve into dubstep, drumstep, electro-house and everything in between. This was teed it up with lead single "All Fall Down (feat. Shaz Sparks)" and "Make The Call (feat. TC)" and later followed up by the release of the title track "Cross The Line (feat. Ayah Marar)".

Autumn 2011 also saw the birth of Camo & Krooked *LIVE* - an amazing, multi-sensory show, featuring the pair perched inside an LED-lit cage using iPads and various MIDI-controllers to rearrange and modify their recent hits and trigger visuals, with album vocalists Ayah Marar and TC featuring, plus Messy MC hosting. Designed and built by Justin from Meno TV, Camo & Krooked *LIVE* was taken around the UK on an Autumn Hospitality tour before the duo took it overseas to their native Austria and the rest of Europe.

2012 has seen the release of their remix album “Between The Lines” which features re-works of “Cross The Line” cuts by a range of producers including Metrik, Mefjus, Subwave, BCee and more. The boys have also had their music featured on some high profile computer games and are busy working on their next album. Hold tight for more to come from this explosive duo!

FRED V & GRAFIX:
Fledgling stars Fred Vahrman and Josh Jackson a.k.a Fred V & Grafix signed to Hospital at the end of 2011 and have been making waves ever since. A pair of producers who have been working together for the past five years now and showing huge promise, the boys have already brought us such gems as “One Of These Days”, “Long Distance“ and “Room To Breathe”, as well as featuring on a number of Hospitality compilations. When they’re not making uplifting liquid gems and charming D+B fans across the globe, the Devon duo are often found on BBC Radio 1Xtra or doing mini mixes for Annie Mac.

Recent recruits to the scene, Fred V & Grafix were initially into live music, with Fred’s guitar talents still coming into good use in their recent contribution to the “Fifteen Years Of Hospital Records” album “Find My Way”. The pair converted to D+B when they heard Pendulum’s controversial and genre-changing album “Hold Your Colour” and High Contrast’s sophomore “High Society”. Influenced by an eclectic range of sounds outside of D+B, from electro/French house, ambient and hip hop, Fred V & Grafix cite artists such as Flying Lotus, Bonobo, Dilla and Jimi Hendrix as key inspirations, alongside fellow Hospital artists High Contrast and Logistics.

Having already released music on Allsorts and Talkin Beatz, and received Radio One support from Zane Lowe and Annie Mac, Fred V & Grafix made their Hospital debut on the “Fifteen Years Of Hospital Records” album with “Find My Way”. As well as producers within their own right, Fred V & Grafix have also stunned us with their remixes of Emeli Sande – “Daddy”, Skepta – “Hold On”, Camo & Krooked - "All Fall Down" and not forgetting their amazing remix of Rudimental's chart-topping No. 1 hit "Feel The Love". Most recently, the boys have been in the spotlight with the resounding success of their Sick Music 3 contribution "Major Happy" which has garnered high profile support from Annie Mac and more. With plenty of charisma, talent and the backing of many of the industry's key players, one thing's for sure - as we look ahead, the future is most definitely bright for Fred V & Grafix.
