Hospital Records BBC Radio 1Xtra Takeover: Live Update 1Posted by Lady V on Wednesday, January 25th, 2012
We have an exclusive access-all-areas pass behind the scenes of the show, keeping you updated with all the goings on throughout the 3-hour Hospital records special.
Starting the show by celebrating the new, the label’s latest signings Fred V and Grafix joined Chris Goss and Bailey in the studio, revealing their full names behind their D&B alias….and they’re wickedly cool;
Fred V aka Frederick Marc Isaac Trapnell Vahrman
Grafix aka Joshua Melrose Jackson
Danny Byrd also passed through the studio, fresh from hanging out with the Brookes Brothers earlier….but unfortunately no word that they were making music, although Danny explained that he has been busy working in the studio, hence he’s growing his hair, ‘doing a Jay-Z’! He also took a moment to big up his home town of Bath, proudly boasting about the spas and Jane Austen museum!
Finishing the first hour of tonight’s show, instead of delivering his weekly Top 5 chart, Bailey counted down his Top 5 Hospital tracks:
5. London Elektricty ‘Different Drum’
4. Cyantific ‘Don’t Follow’
3. Danny Byrd feat. IK ‘Red Mist’
2. Logistics ‘Together’
1. High Contrast feat. Diane Charlemagne ‘If We Ever’
Still to come: High Contrast, S.P.Y and a live PA from Ayah Marar!
