Everyone that has been exposed to the sounds of breakbeat will have undoubtedly rocked out to the classical, progressive and bass heavy wizardy of Mike Truman and Chris Healings, aka Hybrid. They were some of my own first experiences of breaks with their remix of Carl Cox a very welcoming surprise B-side which eventually got loads more play than the A. Breakspoll 2013 winners of Best New DJ’s, Se7en Deadly Breaks, were also exposed to them early on in their journey to becoming full bore breaks addicts and have compiled and mixed this hour long tribute to the progressive breakbeat pioneers.
Here’s what the guys has to say;
“Basically we wanted to do a tribute mix to Hybrid because we’re such big fans and they are where we first heard the breakbeat sound with their remix of F.S.O.L. – Papua New Guinea. Then from there seeing them at Fabric and other clubs and festivals alongside other breaks artists opened up that whole exciting scene to us.
Enjoy the mix
Big ups to Hybrid!”
