I bought Hybrid's first album 'Wideangle' when it came out a few years back and productionwise and technically it was great apart from their (or their record label's) insistence in having a female vocalist on most of the tracks, making them look and sound like a band perhaps? Kosheen vibe...Anyway, as far as I know they haven't won any Mercury Music Prize awards since then, and unlike their debut album they don't have wide-angle photo-spreads of the bandmembers on this album so I guess someone in the pub had a word in their ears, and they must have listened....a bit anyway. This album is their 'throw of the breaks dice' mix album (think DJ kicks for breaks fiends)- incorporating current breaks releases/influences alongside one or two of their own tracks. It's good, but it takes a while to grow, so be patient. (A lot better than Meat Katie's Bedrock Breaks by the way...)Highlights in my opinion are track 9 'Nectarios' and Hybrid themselves on the final track (13) which displays their awesome musicality and perfection in soundscaping. If you want to explore breaks albums with a bit more bite and originality I would suggest 'ILS' an English breaks producer who has an excellent album out called 'Soul Trader' on the Marine Parade label. Enjoy, if you get a chance.
