Raygun Youth Presents
AT JUNK, 22.01.10

Having firmly established ourselves as a leading venue when it comes to Drum & Bass we are upping our game in 2010 as we present the world’s leading Drum & Bass artists and brands. We kick off 2010’s collaborations with Raygun Youth, with a monster of a party as we bring you Hospitality!

Hospitality, Hospital record’s self styled club night is firmly established as one of the world’s biggest drum and bass nights. Always delivering mouth watering line ups of special guests alongside the NHS crew has seen the event grow from residencies in London to some of the biggest clubs and festivals in the world such as Matter and The Manchester Warehouse Projects. It is with great pleasure that we are able to bring the night to Junk in Southampton.

Danny Byrd
One of the very first artists to sign to Hospital - way back at the turn of the millennium, Danny Byrd’s own inimitable take on soulful, vocal Drum and Bass has become a staple in the scene. With a growing reputation as one of the finest party DJs in the scene, Danny Byrd has been touring nonstop, taking him from Los Angeles to Paris, from Romania to Vienna, as well as closer to home at Hospitality nights all over the UK. In demand on both sides of the Atlantic, Danny Byrd has progressed into one of the most exciting talents within D+B. Unashamedly full fat, Byrd beats are essential in any balanced musical diet, get involved!

Award winning disk jockey Jon & twisted synth genius Matt have been making harsh tasty beats together since high school and were gathered up into the Hospital fold in summer 2002, after a tip off from High Contrast no less. A series of 12"s, remixes and compilation appearances helped to build their diehard underground fanbase. Recognised in march 2007 when Cyantific scooped the highly prized Best Breakthrough DJ Award from BBC 1Xtra - It was apparent that Jon has some serious skills, and he's on a mission to spread the gospel according to Cyantific far and wide!

Commix is the alias of Cambridge duo Guy Brewer and George Levings, who have been producing music for the past 6 years. After originally being a trio, Commix became two in 2004, and since that time their sound has taken on an edgier and more wide-ranging style, with their diverse range of musical influences shining through in their music. Commix make up half of D+Bs very own super group along with Logistics & Nu:Tone and unleashed their long player “Future Sounds Of Cambridge” on Hospital late in 2008 and it has been smashing apart dancefloors ever since. The duo also have releases on C.I.A, Horizons Music and with Goldie then offering the duo an album deal, Commix became the first artist to release an album on Metalheadz

MC Wrec is regarded as one of the UK's most exciting young artists and music entrepreneurs.

When not busy touring, he's running Mum's The Word music management, looking after some of the hottest up-coming acts in town.
