>anyway. do we have any experts on them here? i'd be curious to know if they're
>touring and what releases are a must.
I consider myself a Hybrid expert, lucky for you :)
In terms of releases...try and search out the Japan CD import of "Wide
Angle" which comes with an extra CD of 5 live tracks recorded in
Amsterdam. I also have a Ministry of Sound DJ session with Hybrid. Also,
don't forget the "Y3K" compilation that was put out by DJ Hyper (of Bedrock
fame) on Distinct'ive Records which has 2 Hybrid tracks and overall is
awesome. Y3K is the epitome of what they're calling nu skool breaks,
imho. There are also CD singles of "Finished Symphony" and "If I Survive"
as well (which I have.)
In terms of domestic releases, Hybrid was supposed to be distributed
stateside on Thrive but Thrive was dropped by their parent, WEA. So we're
(the US Hybrid fans) hoping for a !K7 release here in the US (!K7 is doing
all the Global Underground releases that Thrive did in the past.) Others
say that Kinetic will release Hybrid in the US. Whoever does, let's hope
they do so soon!
They toured the US briefly in 1999. I saw them perform at the Viper Room
here in LA with a packed crowd of industry insiders. It was a religious
experience for me (being the fan I am.) I also heard them DJ at Louis XIV
which was cool too. They went to WMC I heard. I pray that they will tour
again if "Wide Angle" gets a domestic release." Hybrid is great live,
better than Deepsky if you've ever seen them live.
