J-Slyde & Simon Murphy – Live @ Brown Alley – Sept 23rd 2011

by J-Slyde

Hybrid, Tetrameth, Rack n Ruin, Solar Fields FlyerOur two head-wigs, Simon Murphy and J-Slyde, have finally gotten round to sorting out their live recording from the Hybrid and Solar Fields gig a few months back.

They played a peak-time set in main room inbetween the main acts. Bridging the gap from Hybrid’s techy prog and prog breaks, and setting the stage for Solar Fields intelligent psy, the boys did well in keeping the vibe and entertaining the heaving crowd. Taking influences from both their coined styles, the boys were able to find common ground with the music that they brought to the table. What followed is a fantastic peak-time set full of progressive and tech flavours.

UPDATE: We’ve been lucky enough to join forces with Jungle Tiger and have secured Tetrameth and Solar Fields! Tickets are at the same price – be quick, as they will sell out!! Further details below.


Hybrid Sound System (UK)

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.

Though, much has changed on the road to Hybrid’s fourth artist album Disappear Here. Most notable is the addition of Hybrid’s third member – singer/ songwriter Charlotte James – to go along with founders Chris Healings and Mike Truman.

Charlotte’s impact is marked as Disappear Here is truly an album of real songs and not merely dance beats with vocals on top. It offers a lot more than anything Hybrid has ever previously written and pushes boundaries in every way.

With Disappear Here, Hybrid have managed to create an epic and unique sound which has progressed dramatically from its original dance inception but still retains much of what makes electronic music so exciting. The album features guest vocals from Tim Hutton, drums from Alex Madge and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

Rack & Ruin (UK)

This young London producer has already harnessed the support of BBC’s Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw, Kissy Sell-Out, Toddla T, DJ Zinc, Fake Blood, Shy FX, Jack Beats, Boy 8-Bit, and many more with his latest releases.

Remix credits include Nas & Damien Marley, I Blame Coco, Aggro Santos, The Nextmen feat. Groove Armada & Ms. Dynamite, Zero 7, and The Freestylers. Future projects include collaborations with Island Records, Southern Fried Records, Fat! Records, MC Navigator, Slarta John (Basement Jaxx), new vocalist Jessie Ware, and many more established vocalists and artists.

Solar Fields (SWEDEN)

Swedish based electronic music composer Magnus Birgersson aka Solar Fields built a unique sonic universe with a constant shifting from high tech ambient flow into broken beats, powerful sequences and fragmented loops. As a natural born multi-instrumentalist, Magnus plays the Veena, sitar, drums and guitar and is also deeply connected to any sound processing machine. Constantly exploring new musical horizons in his famous high-tech station called Studio Jupiter, Solar Fields likes to develop an evolving dream (“unfinished” as he likes to mention) and offers an intense listening experience.

The productive discography of Magnus Birgersson should be considered like a following of drifting masterpieces : 9 solo albums, 3 collaboration album with French composer Aes Dana under the name H.U.V.A. Network and more than 60 compilations features for various labels. Often classified as ambient downtempo. Solar Fields music in fact goes further than these boundaries propulsed by his talent for sculpting hypnotic harmonics and layering sounds.

Tetrameth (AUS)

Tetrameth is the brain child of Melbourne based musician/producer, Peter Hayes. Peter has been in the laboratory since 2003, cooking a potent brew of eclectic psychedelic progressive. Studying the art of music & several instruments from an early age. Making the shift from playing & touring in bands, to writing and producing in a studio was an inevitable and easy transition. Tetrameth’s sound has been quoted as “An extremely eclectic concoction. Cleverly constructed progressive, with an unmistakably organic undertone. The end result is a beast of its own.”(Beat magazine-2007)

Peter is a graduated musician, with a diploma in contemporary music, & majored playing guitar at the “Conservatorium of Music”. Tetrameth is psy trance at a world-class level, truly pushing, and surpassing boundaries previously set within the genre.
