EDIT Members – Chris Goss

Chris Goss is half of the partnership behind Hospital, one of the UK’s best loved independent record labels.

Chris set up Hospital in 1996 with Tony Colman, following their early 90s excursions in jazz and soul as Tongue+Groove Records. Together they made music as London Elektricity, as well as a host of other pseudonyms, until Chris withdrew from recording work in 2002 to focus on building the company.

Hospital grew into one of the UK’s most forward thinking labels. As well as pioneering and pre-empting what would become “liquid funk” in drum&bass, Hospital pioneered artist development within the genre, discovering artists such as High Contrast and Danny Byrd, and building a catalogue of artist-led album projects. Hospital was also a key player in the development of the West London broken-beat scene, and even early incarnations of dubstep, courtesy of non d+b releases from Landslide, Phuturistix and the seminal “Out Patients” compilations.

The label’s clubnight “Hospitality” launched at Herbal in Shoreditch in 2002. And has since grown into the award-winning brand it is today. The Heaven residency ran from 2004-2008, moving over to Fabric’s
‘uber-Venue’ Matter at the start of 2009, selling out every event to over 3000 ravers.

Chris is the day-to-day label manager at Hospital, which is now a full-time team of seven staff, with warehouse, office and studio space in Forest Hill. He oversees production, manufacture and distribution, the daily office runnings, handles all art-direction, remix and production work, and is part of the 3-man A+R machine.
Chris manages High Contrast, alongside a basic management role for all the label’s signed acts, and is in charge of all the Hospitality events and residencies. In addition to the record label and sister imprint
Med School, Hospital also own Songs In The Key Of Knife Publishing and is highly pro-active in the sync-ing arena.
