For those that know him and those that don’t, Tony Colman (no ‘e’!) cuts a formidable figure. The co-founder and CEO of Hospital Records and sister label Med School, mastermind behind the multi award-winning Hospital podcast, producer and vinyl-only DJ, has been instrumental in the development of D+B as we know it today.

Responsible for some of Hospital’s biggest anthems, such as “Billion Dollar Gravy”, “Different Drum” and “Just One Second”, London Elektricity has cultivated a first class reputation as both a producer and DJ and continues to push the genre he fell in love with in the mid 1990s to this day.

His debut album “Pull The Plug” was released on Hospital in 1999, with the follow up “Billion Dollar Gravy” in 2003 and “Power Ballads”
