Proudly introducing the latest addition to the Hospital roster, Felipe Wrechiski otherwise known as Urbandawn. Born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil and having already dedicated over fourteen years to his musical career. Originally training in classical and Brazilian popular music playing guitar, bass and basic drums as well as graduating in Audio Engineering from IAV – one of the most respected audio institutes in South America.
Not only has Urbandawn spent his time producing drum and bass but has also worked in legendary studios such as ‘A Voz Do Brasil’ creating epic soundtracks for cinema and broadcast, with his work featured on platforms like ESPN, HBO and Redbull to name a few.
First catching the attention of Hospital A+R duty managers in 2012 with his debut release ‘Astrolabe’ featuring on the ‘Hospitality 2012’ compilation. Adaptable across the genre, it wasn’t long before Med School masters caught on, selecting Brazil inspired ‘Trindade’ as part of the eclectic ‘New Blood 014’ compilation album. Most recently we saw his skills shine through on the huge ‘Hospitality 2015’ compilation with ‘Warpdrive’.
On the remix tip, Urbandawn has impressed many with his spin on Fred V & Grafix’s atmospheric, liquid roller ‘Clouds Cross Skies’ as part of their ‘Unrecognisable’ remix album. Not only no stranger to Hospital Records but having also had previous releases with Fokuz and Bad Taste Recordings. Most prominently known for his highly regarded debut EP ‘Words To Say/Torus’ supported by well-respected producers DJ Marky, Sabre, LTJ Bukem, and Hospital CEO Tony Colman, no less.
2016 saw the release of his debut album ‘Gothenburg Cluster’. Seventeen tracks of sophisticated sound design unite punching drum beats, funk ridden riffs, and huge cinematic explorations. The experienced audio engineer not only draws from his Brazilian roots but also the more niche rock, metal and folk bands of the Swedish mid 90’s scene. It’s this distinctive spin on drum & bass that’s grown support from the scene’s heavyweights over the last two years.
