high contrast Tough Guys Don't Dance (3 x 12", £11.50)label: hospital
The incredible third album from Hospital’s original d'n'b prodigy is finally upon us. It’s been a long and varied journey since the release of his debut back in 2002 which breathed new life into d'n'b, a whole heap of producers have come and gone, whilst others have taken direct influence from his lead. ‘Tough Guys Don’t Dance’ shows why he has become the d'n'b producer that even people who don't like d'n'b listen to; Missy Elliot, White Stripes, Blaze and Basement Jaxx have all been remixed by him, each of these versions finding favour with Radio 1 DJs as have two of the singles taken from this album so far ‘If We Ever’ and ‘In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida’. ‘Tough Guys ..’ features some exciting collaborations from the vocal gymnastics of Jazz wizard Ian Shaw to the legendary diva’s Diane Charlemagne right through to the country soul searching Linda Gail-Lewis (sister of rock & roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis no less!).
