This is our story...

The cat is out of the bag, and we are honored to announce that NEST has teamed up with the lauded Hospital Records to release a 4-track EP from Brazil-born, London-based Drum N Bass stalwart, S.P.Y, this February. The release follows two full length records released last year on Hospital (Back To Basics Chapters 1 & 2) which were both met with critical acclaim upon release. Incredibly, even after pushing out a total of 24 quality tunes via both albums, S.P.Y (aka Carlos Barbosa de Lima Junior) still had even more gas in the tank, and such, his EP for NEST was born.

Making the initial announcement this weekend was none other than Pete Tong, as S.P.Y collated his debut Essential Mix for Pete’s legendary show on Radio 1 on Saturday. As with every artist’s Essential Mix, Carlos opened his up with a bit of commentary, explaining —

I wanted to create a showcase of some of my favorite drum & bass tracks, combined with a selection of tunes that I’ve produced and some of the remixes that I’ve been working on recently. When I started digging through my records, I became really inspired, and it was really hard to make a final selection.

The final, 51-track selection came out flawlessly, hosting a perfectly balanced assortment of S.P.Y originals and remixes along with inclusion from DnB dons like Dub Phizix, Noisia, Calibre, and more. Listen to all two hours below and make sure to check the tracklist below for the NEST release standouts.
