Hit producer Logistics follows in brother's footsteps

11 January 2017 5:02PM

A DRUM and bass producer and DJ championed by Radio 1 will be headlining a club night in Ulverston next month.

Hospital Records' high-profile star Logistics will be at the Basement Bar, in Market Street, for the latest Monster Monster event on Saturday February 25.

He follows his labelmate and brother Nu:Tone in performing a well-received packed-out appearance at the venue at the end of last year.

One of the pioneers of the signature Hospital Records sound, Logistics already has an impressive succession of albums, EPs, collaborations and remixes in his repertoire.

His latest studio album - his sixth full-length release - Electric Sun showcases his jungle flavoured rollers, garage-inspired chop-ups, down tempo head-nodders, swirling synths and merciless subs.

The lead single, Take Me To Another World, was strongly supported by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Beats1 selector Julie Adenuga - a decade after he rose to national attention with his 2006 album Now More Than Ever, which won BBC 1Xtra's Xtra Bass award.

The younger brother of Nu:Tone, Matt Gresham - better known as Logistics - signed exclusively to Hospital in 2004, and his work was picked up by the major DJs in the scene such as Andy C, Grooverider and Friction.

Throughout his back catalogue he has covered a variety of tempos and styles, and at the turn of the decade was heralded as the future of dub step.

A packed bill for this February event will also see Monster Monster resident Mister Monster, the HomeGrown DJs, Graham Wynne, and Tom Povey also performing sets.

Tickets are available in advance from partyforthepeople.org or from The Sun Inn, in Ulverston.
