Logistics, one of Hospital Records’ most prolific artists, is back with his seventh studio album ‘Hologram’. Inspired by his travels to Hong-Kong and New Zealand, this universally admired drum & bass figure presents a vibrant 16-track collection soaked in his signature groove, soul and liquid-funk stylings.
Opening track ‘Lotus Flower’ sets a warm springtime tone with fluttering harp-like arpeggios and atmospheric pads, given it’s first spin by Rene LaVice on BBC Radio 1. ‘Broken Light’ follows on from the success that singer/songwriter Thomas Oliver brought on Logistics’ collaborative LP with brother Nu:Tone. A sombre tone matched with melancholic lyrics brings a blissful beat to the album.
Keeping true to the craft, ‘Chant’ flips to Logistics’ jungle style with molten-hot flair, already picked up by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac. A powerful punch of expertly sliced breaks and vocal stabs are the ingredients for this dancefloor weapon.
It’s safe to say that this has been worth the wait. Although titled from the ever-growing illusion of the digital-age, ‘Hologram’ is a very real example of Logistics’ talent and is a welcomed addition to his impressive repertoire of drum & bass classics. Quantity, quality and a fierce musical character is everything we have come to expect from this Hospital staple.
