Every once in a while a spark of an idea balloons into something astounding and takes the drum & bass world by complete surprise. As an ode to the seminal track by legendary British band The Beatles, Urbandawn has created a very special 174 cover of ‘Come Together’, featuring the vocals of the world-famous Beatles Bootleg frontman Tyson Kelly.
Urbandawn’s unrivalled production has seen him turn the heads of the scene’s most infamous figures with support pouring in from dance music titans Andy C, DJ Marky, Danny Byrd, London Elektricity and the track even getting rewinds in the booth from Skrillex.
The ‘Come Together’ cover doubles down on the combined doses of nostalgia and euphoria. Where the energy from the original British pop culture classic is matched with all of the extravagant trimmings of Urbandawn’s unique D+B style. It’s first-class-crunch has made some serious noise and propelled him to the forefront of the D+B community, making Urbandawn one of the most sought after dubplate creators.
After notable releases such as his phenomenal ‘Gothenburg Cluster’ LP and the delightfully dynamic ‘Sleeping Awake’ EP, the cover comes in a class of its own that has come crashing through the ages – coveted by many, and soon to be available for all on a limited edition one sided heavyweight, etched vinyl with classic 60’s style design.
Proudly introducing the latest addition to the Hospital roster, Felipe Wrechiski otherwise known as Urbandawn.

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.
