Lally & Aaliyah Esprit kick things off with ‘Hustlin’’, a soul-driven liquid funk stepper
composed of elegant R&B vocals, warming pianos and crisp drum breaks. With Lally
making his debut release on Soulvent Records earlier this year, and Aaliyah Esprit
claiming a number of accolades including being selected as a pupil for Giles Peterson’s ‘
Future Bubblers’ programme as well as a string of singles, this is a combination of
two sounds that intertwine to perfection.
Multi-talented heat supplier Stay-C is flying the flag for the South African drum & bass
family with ‘Russian Doll’. Based out of Johannesburg, Hospital Records’ former Women
In Drum & Bass mentee Stay-C is no stranger to laying down a cold cut banger. With an
official remix for Nu:Logic’s ‘New Technique’ under her belt on the ‘H25PITAL’
compilation, her latest body of work matches up to be just as tough.
Sharp up-and-comer Disrupta brings the energy on ‘Like The Sun’ as he meticulously
combines iconic dance music sounds with the new generation of drum & bass. Expect
euphoric Korg M1 style synths, punchy drums and a dreamy vocal sample. With releases
on Liquid V, Born On Road and Bingo Bass to name a few, Disrupta is paving the way
for the sounds of tomorrow with collaborations alongside fellow new blood including
Jappa, Teej, Sl8r and Duskee.
Dividing her time between drum & bass and ballet accompaniment, classically trained
pianist and skilled music producer imo-Lu offers an uplifting key-driven ballad where
her musicality shines through brightly. Carving out a name for herself with appearances
on the Hospital Records Rinse FM show, a collaboration with Kharm and a healthy
supply of self-releases on her Soundcloud, imo-Lu is one to watch - no questions asked.
The sounds of tomorrow are looking stronger than ever. Don’t sleep on these names, and
be sure to keep an eye out for the coming instalments of Hospital Records’ new ‘Future
Symptoms’ series - these are the next generation.
