A breakbeat from the norm,
This review is from: Hybrid Presents Y4K (Audio CD)
When it comes to DJing, Hybrid can blow hot and cold. Last year I caught them live twice - once at SW4 where they played a set that perfectly matched the blissed out mood of the sun soaked revelers, and then again at Fabric, where they were pants. Fortunately their Y4K mix falls into the very, VERY impressive category.
Listeners familiar with Hybrid's groundbreaking first album Wide Angle will know all about their mixing capabilities through its excellent bonus disc Wider Angle. While the Y4K offering is more about other artist's tracks, they manage to lace it with a sound that is unmistakably theirs - lots of big beats, beautiful strings and great melodies. The result is fantastic. If you only buy this album for the Stereo 8 mix of Orbital's 'One Perfect Sunrise' then it will be money well spent.
