The OMC 4 Track: Hybrid

This week’s OMC 4 Track pick is a little British act called Hybrid Sound System or as they are more commonly known, Hybrid. Based in the Welsh city of Swansea the group is comprised of Mike Truman and Chris Healings, for the 2010 4th studio album, Disappear Here the duo added Charlotte James for the album vocals. Hybrid are primarily known as a progressive breaks act, although they overlap considerably with progressive house and trance and are often regarded as pioneers in the electronic genre.

Since first bursting onto the scene with the now classic album Wide Angle in 1999, the Swansea, Wales-based Hybrid have been known as one of the most forward thinking and technically skilled acts in electronic dance music. Blurring the line between in-studio production and live presentation, Hybrid are one of the few remaining dance acts to perform live with a classic band setup.

These guys are a personal favourite of mine and I am hanging out for the next time they tour having sadly missed them the last time they were in the country. The first video in this OMC 4 Track is the single Break My Soul from the album Disappear Here, shot over a six week period from December 2009 to January 2010, directed and edited by Hybrid’s Mike Truman the music video features Charlotte James and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
