H IS FOR HYBRID (PT2)

More breaks from Wales with Hybrid.

Their official bio says: Mike Truman and Chris Healings have been writing, producing, touring and DJing all over the globe for the best part of a decade and have amassed nearly 250 productions to date. The duo have written three LPs, ‘Wide Angle’ which was released in 1999, “Morning Scifi” released in 2003 and “I Choose Noise” in 2007 on Distinctive Records.

They were chosen by Moby to support him on his Autumn 2000 North American tour which covered 43 dates over 56 days. This gave the fledgling band time to get ready for their first punishing global tour over 18 months taking them to every venue that matters from as far afield as Australia, Japan for the Fuji Rock Festival, Melbourne for the Millennium NYE, across Europe and back to the UK to headline many festival tents and concert venues.

Their second album’s more fragile and darker sound has led them to getting involved with scoring for film and the duo worked with Harry Gregson Williams in January 2004 on Tony Scott’s ‘Man On Fire’. Since then they have been involved in the production of the score for Ridley Scott’s ‘Kingdom Of Heaven’ and the Tony Scott films, ‘Domino’ and “Déjà Vu” and have recently completed their first solo score for Twisted Pictures newest production, ‘Catacombs’.Now touring as a full seven piece band, Hybrid spent last summer playing live in the US, Australia and Europe, working with Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction, Peter Distefano from Porno For Pyros and Hooky from New Order. Now fronted by permanent singers Charlotte James and John Graham they are currently working on album four while busy with touring, film projects and a DJ compilation to be released this summer.

They have a strong remix catalogue and released an album of remixes in 2001. Here’s a random selection:

Energy 52 – Cafe Del Mar (Hybrid Remix)

Chris Coco – Albatross (Hybrid Remix)

Moby – Bodyrock (Hybrid’s Bodyshock Remix)
