Re: Hybrid DJ Set? + INFO Glasgow Chew The Fat! Chris Healings
- The good news is that my car managed to get to Glasgow before
breaking down somewhere near the city centre. Not to let this spoil
my night I went along to the Sub Club last Friday and was delighted
to spot Chris enjoying a crafty ciggie before his set outside the
club. Managed to chat to him for 5 mins and got a few bits of
info. Some I can share and some I dare n't share ;-)
Chris confirmed his favourite track as 'I Choose Noise'.
Interestingly he mentioned that they had sampled the brass section
from a VERY well known 70's sci-fi film title track and put it
through REAKTOR for part of this tune (you'll have to work it out,
unless it has already been mentioned in the DVD from Future Music
Mag which I still have n't seen!)
He once again used a 4 letter profanity to describe Morning Sci Fi
(without prompting I may add), although I pointed out that they did
pick up quite a few fans through that release, and that I personally
Apparently Mike scans through the messages on this list when he gets
chance. Think he was doing that to pick up ideas from group members
prior to MSF which Chris partially attributed to the albums lack of
direction (as perceived by Chris/Mike).
'Keep It In The Family' is a joke title with incestual connatations
referring to the stereotypical (or possibly factual? ;-)) view of
people who come from Wales.
He mentioned that he was gutted for days after events at the Glade
live performance and that they made an extra special effort to make
it up at Global Gathering (which was awesome IMO). Chris blamed the
poor sound and confirmed that they could n't hear each other on
stage which caused loads of problems. he made me chuckle when he
did an impression of his rather solemn speech on stage just before
they walked off at Glade.
Also got a couple of pics in which I look very happy despite
soberness (as a designated driver alas)
All in all a cracking set from Chris which impressed even some of my
non dance music loving friends! No album tracks in there but
the 'Papua New Guinea' & 'Everything In It's Right Place' remixes
did get a spin. Also played a unknown remix of Smack My Bitch Up
which got the place rocking!

- The Prodigy remix was Seb Fontaine's remix of Smack My Bitch Up - an
excellent track, I recon, and Chris also played Hybrid's new Chime remix -
which was possibly the best track all night.
I didn't get a chance to speak to him, as we had to run all the way from a
pub the other end of Glasgow, but we made it in time for the first track and
I managed to slip him my business card (although I was a bit drunk, and in
retrospective I doubt he'll even think twice about emailing or whatever!)
