Following on from nights at Building 6 and Heaven, Hospital Records hit up their 3rd London venue for the year- the recently reopened Studio 338 in Greenwich. The venue- the current home of Sankey’s London nights – is worth a mention. Half terrace half indoors, with a 3000 person capacity, and a music policy aimed at getting acts people “would walk barefoot to Kent to go and see”, you know your in for something a bit special when you come here.
For their Summer Solstice Special, Hospital decided to mix it up a little and make full use of the indoor/ outdoor nature of the club, and threw a day party. With barbecues going, ice cream vans, and plenty of beer and sunshine, Hospital somehow managed to get it just right. The crowd was eased into day the day by some hip hop, reggae and pop tunes, before Nu:Tone hit the decks to treat the crowd to a jungle classics set. They were followed by Metrik and Etherwood, before London Elektricity came on to the delight of everyone there.
London Elektricity then handed control of the decks over to another Hospital favourite, Brazilian DJ S.P.Y. – playing a great set, he managed to bring the crowd up another level. With S.P.Y’s set ending, we left the greenhouse.. sorry terrace, for an hour or so to catch Anile, one of Med Schools top up and coming producers. He played a great set, and I look forwards to catching him again soon.
Our Summer Solstice day out with Hospital was brilliant. In fact, the only downside was in fact, the terrace. A great venue, and surprisingly warm by night, the lack of retractable roof made the main arena a little… well.. sweaty. However, this didn’t really seem to bother anyone, who in true London style, partied through it. Probably because at least it wasn’t raining.
Hospital Records next London event will be at the O2 Brixton Academy on the 26th of September. Grab tickets here before they sell out!
