Cinematic breaks duo Hybrid release their third album 'I Choose Noise' next week. Expect more widescreen sonics and dark menacing beats...
Hybrid are early progressive breaks pioneers Chris Healings and Mike Truman. Debut album 'Wide Angle' (1999) which combined breaks and filmscore-like symphonies earmarked the duo as masters of wide screen breaks. The duo are also prolific remixers lending a hand to over 120 artists including Radiohead, REM, Moby and The Orb.
Third album 'I Choose Noise' continues on from the cinematic landscapes of 'Wide Angle' and the darker, rockier outings on second LP 'Morning Sci-fi'. The album includes collaborations with Porno For Pyros' Peter Distefano, film composer Harry Gregson Williams, Jane's Addictions' Perry Farrell, vocalist Kirsty Hawkshaw, prog house studio whiz John "Quivver" Graham and New Order's Peter Hook. Orchestral sections were performed by the 36-piece Seattle Orchestra so it's not exactly your typical laptop longplayer.
