“We are all extremely proud to present our 500th release on Hospital. As we begin our 27th year in business this project acts as a timely showcase for the breadth of talent the company is invested in for 2023 and beyond. Hosting established figures like Flava D, Netsky, and S.P.Y, through to up-and-coming talent like Anais, IYRE and Kanobie, this 23-track 4-piece LP celebrates the myriad of styles that currently piece together our D&B DNA. Delivering all new productions, 500 also features exclusive remixes from Serum, Makoto+Marky, Grafix and Enei. Hospital’s long-standing designer Ricky Trickartt has housed all four records in an unfolding, medical roadmap that pays homage to the multiple creatives, collectives and dedicated supporters that have inspired and celebrated Hospital’s journey throughout the years; and without whom, we never would have made it. Thank you all, and here’s to another 500!” Chris Goss- Hospital Records Owner
