Hybrids new album Disappear HereThey’re one of the most technically gifted acts in EDM, but Hybrid have not released an album since I Choose Noise. They’re highly respectable, preferring to use genuine Orchestras instead of synths, and Disappear Here adds to this with the inclusion of a third band member alongside Mike Truman and Chris Healings. Charlotte James is a singer songwriter and adds her vocals to tracks such as “Can You Hear Me”, a shining moment for Charlotte; combining her powerful vocals with soaring strings and the bass playing of Tim Hutton (Ian Brown, The Prodigy). “Green Shell Suit” is chill out at its absolute best, and “Every Word” brings a soothing, warm natural feel with the combination of a haunting slide guitar, soulful acoustic and wonky. imaginative but playful sound design. The stadium electronica of “Formula of Fear” is like an orgasmic explosion in the ears and presents one of the album’s most intense highs. Onwards, “Salt” is stuffed full of warped bass lines and brush drums, whereas “Original Sin” is a monster of a track with a huge, cinematic feel to it. “Take A Fall” features a metal-breaks edge with Tim Hutton providing vocals.  Hybrid then presents the album’s first single “Break My Soul.” A masterful mash-up of triumphant chorus and powerful strings to a deep powerful bass line.

Speaking about the additional band member, Chris Healings comments that; “This album offers a lot more than anything we’ve managed to write in the past. Charlotte comes from that singer/songwriter/performer world and she really inspired us to write something much more song based. Working so much with her we feel like there’s a feeling of going somewhere else or doing something that will last longer in a live capacity. The music definitely reflects our desire to be a band but firmly rooted in dance music.”

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
