London Elektricity - Final View From The Rooftops ft Cydnei B. Grafix - Acid Generation
He’s steered the ship that is Hospital Records through the seven seas of D+B over the last twenty-three years, and in 2019 London Elektricity returns with his own new music, ‘Final View From The Rooftops’ (ft Cydnei B.). This majestic musical exploration paves the way for his seventh studio album, in which London Elektricity has created his own world of jazz, loungecore, disco and funk inspired drum & bass. ‘Final View From The Rooftops’ is an eccentric adventure that’s been 13 years in the making, twisting through a tale of untraditional D+B; a six minute soundscape that's a masterclass in progressive orchestral fantasia and a timeless dose of soul. Along with spearheading his internationally reaching drum & bass powerhouse Hospital Records, London Elektricity is also the mastermind behind seminal albums such as 'Syncopated City’, ‘Are We There Yet?’, and ‘Yikes’, with his extensive discography culminating countless drum & bass classics. “I think this is the most unusual piece of D+B I've made, and therefore it had to open the album. The title describes that moment when you climb on to the roof, take one last look at your world before you embark on the journey of building better worlds.” - London Elektricity
Released July 19, 2019 on Hospital Records
Grafix finally unveils his new sound to the world on his remarkable ‘Refuge’ EP - his first solo release in almost ten years since departing from his long-term collaborative outfit. Delve into his new found inspiration across four tracks that explore the world of underground dancefloor drum & bass. The acid-techno inspired ‘Acid Generation’ calls back to the sound of rave counterculture through the late 80s, with a rapid-fire relay of metallic stabs that pack enough punch to surge through any concrete jungle. Original Grafix fans will relish in the power-chords and big leads of ‘Refuge’, that feature the addictive vocals of Bristol’s Ruth Royall. ‘Photons’ is a welcomed switch-up, bringing in Grafix’s love of house and garage with stabbing percussions and ethereal synths. As ‘Rain Fall Down’ calls out Grafix has his new musical vision clear in sight. As a duo, Grafix has previously released three albums with Hospital Records that included the huge drum & bass anthems ‘Major Happy’, ‘Forest Fires’, ‘Ultraviolet’, ‘Tension’ and many more. He’s had radio support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, MistaJam, Rene LaVice, as well as club support from the biggest in the game. He’s previously toured the globe and this summer he continues to take dancefloors by storm with sets at Glastonbury, Liquicity Festival, Hospitality On The Beach, Boardmasters and more.Grafix - 'Refuge' EP full release on 2nd August 2019.
