Logistics acquired a taste for Drum ‘n’ Bass through the Full Cycle “Music Box” LP. The younger brother of Nu:Tone, Matt Gresham a.k.a Logistics, has gone on to become one of Hospital’s most prolific producers. Signing exclusively to Hospital in 2004, Logistics worked solidly on creating masterpieces such as “Together”, “Spacejam”, ”The Trip” and “Release The Pressure”.
Logistics quickly became known for bridging the gap between liquid funk, which, until then had often been a lackluster sub-genre and the more exciting, dance floor orientated Drum ‘n’ Bass. It’s Logistics’ influence that has been picked up by the major DJs in the scene such as Andy C and Friction, and his anthemic creations have contributed greatly to the modern Hospital sound.
Logistics’ debut LP “Now More Than Ever“ was a hugely ambitious project, restraining no less than 24 speaker busting tunes beneath its calm exterior and soon became known as a classic. In 2007 Logistics also submitted his “Medical History” and 18 months on, having scooped “Best Album” at the 1xtra Bass awards for his debut album, Logistics dropped his second long player “Reality Checkpoint“. Rammed full of genre-bending goodness, it was heralded as a glimpse of the future with dubstep and electronica influences fusing together with the anthemic Logistics sound. The Luke Skywalker of the “Future Sound Of Cambridge” also dropped the massive track “Cosmonaut” and got featured on several awesome collaborations with Commix and brother Nu:Tone, keeping sub basses across the land pounding. Having been locked away deep in the Degobah system making tracks, 2009 was time for Logistics to unleash the full power of the force with the onomatopeic “Crash Bang Wallop“, smacking dance-floors and stereos hard.
A few years back Logistics returned to the studio, producing both under Logistics and his Nu:Logic moniker with brother Nu:Tone. The sum of their combined powers has led to LP’s ‘Morning Light’ and ‘Everlasting Days’ that showcase a nebula of new sounds and techniques. Similarly, their album ‘What I’ve Always Waited For’ oozes the kind of soulful Drum ‘n’ Bass that harks back to the foundation of the Hospital label.
