Cambridge has been the source for some of the most exciting talent in drum & bass, now the next generation of inspired homegrown artists is surfacing. Since signing to Hospital Records in 2015 Hugh Hardie has skated through its inner city streets drawing inspiration for his debut release, the ‘City Soul’ EP. Four tracks, filled with uplifting summer sounds blending soulful jungle flavours and jazzy sunshine rollers.
‘Everything Was Nothing’ opens the EP featuring a hint of sweetness from blues and soul singer Benji Clements. Title track ‘City Soul’ and heat raising ‘Light It Up’ pull in Hugh’s reversed and rhythmic piano skills. ‘Shudder’ completes the EP with bold dance-floor impact.
This may be his first solo EP however, Hugh’s kept busy working with some of the biggest names in the game, featuring on London Elektricity’s ‘Tape Loops’, Logistics anthemic ‘Icarus’ and summer-loving ‘As Sure As Sunrise’. He’s teased us with releases on various compilations, tipped as one to watch on Etherwood’s ‘Hospital Mixtape’ as well as appearing on ‘Hospitality 2016’, ‘2015’ and of course the highly memorable, soul-soothing ‘Tearing Me Apart’ from ‘We Are 18’.
