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!”

MVRK - Dots EP [Pseudoscience Recordings]

New Release – MVRK – Dots

For the first time Hybris has given another producer the nod for a release on his Pseudoscience Recordings imprint – MVRK from Hungary, whose Dots EP hits like a ton of bricks.

Label boss Hybris has this to say about the third release on his label: “When I started Pseudoscience, I wasn’t in a rush to sign other artists, as I only want to release music that I feel absolutely confident about, and I’m a picky bastard.

“But upon first listen to Voyage (on my phone speaker) I told MVRK to lock it down, and the rest of the EP soon followed. MVRK is an exceptional talent from Budapest, who perfectly represents the Pseudoscience sound, and I’m extremely proud to present his debut EP on the label.“ 

That track packs a devastating punch – technically as well as musically – while elsewhere the sumo-size swing of ‘Energizer’ and the eerie robot death throes of ‘Ghost Circuit’ elevate the record several storeys above your standard neurofunk.
