admit to not being too well up on the Leeds scene, until recently I was
just putting up with York.

(although they don't use that name at the club so it's more of a
little-known fact and most people don't recognise them anyway), and I
like the music they play. Suits me fine, I'm not often seen "largin' it"
as they have been overheard to say in Da Hood.

guess I'll have to copy it to MD and take it with me instead. Might post
a track-by-track comment soon if anyone's interested. Stand-out tracks
from the first listen were "Beachcoma", "Snyper" and "Theme From Wide
Angle". Also from the first listen the track I was most suspect about
was "High Life", not bad as a track but at first it seemed like too much
of a Bjork-alike. [He typed, then realised he was wearing a Bjork

that's a bit of a lazy question as I should have had a look myself, but
some people might already be able to tell me where to look (especially
if there's anyone here who works on web sites as part of their living...

Sunscreem fans. ;)
Concerning Hybrid websites, make sure you check out this unofficial one:
Also, www.distinctiverecords.com has an imcomplete one which I'm sure you've
The latest Hybrid single "If I Survive" contains some great remixes by Way

own petty recommendation. ;)
