Hybrid is a British electronic music group based in Swansea, formed around the duo of Mike Truman and Chris Healings. They are primarily known as a progressive breaks act, although they overlap considerably with progressive house and trance. Hybrid released their first album, Wide Angle, in 1999, followed by Morning Sci-Fi, in 2003. They added semi-permanent vocalists and guitarists, Adam Taylor and Tim Hutton (both on the album and when performing live) with a guest appearance from Joy Division / New Order alumnus Peter Hook.
In 2006, Hybrid released their third studio album, I Choose Noise, with 3 tracks featuring vocalists Kirsty Hawkshaw and Perry Farrell. The epic symphonic sound of these pieces seemed to confirm a return to the grand orchestral scope of Wide Angle. Their latest album Soundsystem 01 was released on July 14, 2008 as a double-disc mix collection, with the first CD being based around actual film scores fused with ambient electronica, and the second containing more upfront, club-oriented music represented by remixes of music by the likes of Sasha, Quivver, and Elite Force. That album’s highlight, The Formula of Fear is Hybrid’s first single from their upcoming 4th studio album featuring Charlotte James on vocals.
