4365Successor to The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx and Underworld, High Contrast is another exceptional British dance music artist conquering the world’s dancefloors. Making his debut way back in 2001, he’s come a long way.

Hospital Records – a label at the top of its game – have cherry-picked this selection to represent the very finest moments of his catalogue so far. This extensive dossier contains no less than 25 heavy hitters. The evidence is plain to see. Adored, by both fans of drum & bass, house, rock, indie and electronica, High Contrast holds a unique position in the music scene – a fact reflected in this rich tapestry of musical reference points. High Contrast is the sound of Radio One on a Friday night – (indeed “Racing Green” was the first ever tune to be played on Annie Mac’s flagship show). Jo Whiley, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Fabio and Grooverider are all huge fans.

A first-class collection of High Contrast originals on this two disc extravaganza, is augmented by a remixing masterclass on the second CD. High Contrast’s remix discography is comprehensive. Some of the biggest names in popular music rubbing shoulders with exponents of dance musics cutting edge. From current chart toppers like Adele to early underground excursions with Ils and Omni Trio, this CD makes it easy to hear why High Contrast has become the go-to-guy for every Blackberry-waving A&R executive in the music biz.

High Contrast has proved that his music is equally at home at midday on Radio One, as it is at 5am on the dancefloor at Fabric. High Contrast is not only the biggest thing in drum& bass, but a producer whose ability to reach a wider audience through the accessibility of his music is unparalleled. World beating, scene changing drum & bass; this is how it’s done!

“High Contrast has turned more non-junglists on to D+B than most of his peers put together” iDJ
