Hybris- Not Bug EP [Pseudoscience Recordings]

“I no make mistake, I make innovate.”

If there’s any way to characterize Hybris’ singularly weird and unique out there, it might be that sentence from the EP press itself. With the NOT BUG EP Hybris indeed doubles down on this principle, delivering four tracks that stand on the cutting edge of drum & bass (and beyond) with expert precision.

NOT BUG opens the EP with a strange landscape of tense pads and murky bass drums that thrum with a sinister energy even through their obscurity. FALSE POSITIVE takes a more orthodox approach by comparison, sticking to a straightforward drumbeat but morphing just about every other sound surrounding it to an extreme degree. BEACH MEAT provides a deep and motive bassline groove to the EP, interspersed with hollow sonar pulses from the depths beyond the shore. Finally, there is MUG. Here, all of the EPs elements combine in a dazzling sonic flurry. Impossibly warped basses, odd tonal textures, powerful punchy drums and a full out commitment to weirdness might make this track overwhelming for some, but for that we will leave it to Hybris to explain. In his words

“Sound make u discomfort? Is not bug, is feature!”
