Since the mid 80s, Hybryds are working in the ritual - mythical
-industrial and magical music scene. This band is known for its
mind expanding sound. Primitive ethnical and contemporary industrial
influences are blended to create an unique style that has influenced
many who were looking for spiritual dimensions. In the beginning
of the 80s, Magthea, the male side of the Hybryds was involved in
The Klinik, in the mid 80s he worked on his own personnel music
style. Based on ancient influences and modern technology. The first
tape demo, "Mythical music from the 21st century" did
not get any reaction in the music scene. "Octahedron",
a limited 7 inch, followed but again no one was interested.
At the start of the 90s Yasnaïa joined the Hybryds concept
adding her clear vocals and acoustic instruments. Working together
with Djen Ajakan S and Vidna Obmana resulted in the first of many
CD releases: "The ritual should be kept alive part 1".
An ethnic styled trance piece. Suddenly the music scene discovered
the original, eclectic and powerful Hybryds sound. Many CD releases
followed, each release covering an aspect of the path Magthea and
Yasnaïa were walking."The ritual should be kept alive
part 2", contained collaborations with other musicians and
remixes of the first demo tape. In "Music for rituals "
the pure magical sound of Hybryds became reality, a struggle between
female and male energies gave birth to one of the most original
releases in the magical music scene.
"Soundtrack for the Aquaria of the Antwerp Zoo" mysterious
deep ambient music created with Ah Cama-Sotz for the 150th anniversary
of the Antwerp Zoo (1993). "The ritual of the rave" was
their answer on the commercial rave scene, the soundtrack of the
rave of their tribe and "The atavistic fetisj" an industrial
mini CD were the next steps in their evolution. Each release different
from style, yet it is Hybryds.
"Dreamscapes from a dark side", their most dark and deep
ambient masterpiece, was the reflection of 5 years studio work.
A CD so strong and intense, covering the descending to the black
caves of your mind, a trip in your personnel subconsciousness where
all your fears are born. Although many think "Cortex Stimulation"
and "Mistrust Authority" is a break with their musical
past, Hybryds themselves label this project as cyberpunk, all the
elements which make Hybryds so unique, are still there. Industrial
rhythms and hypnotic electronic sound that crawls into the brain
and brings the listener in alternated states, this time not with
ethnical techniques but with lo-tek technology. "Tectonic Overload",
a limited art release, goes on and over the edge of industrial music,
dead-techno influenced rhythmtracks and hypnotic industrial noise
brings Hybryds closer to the dance floor of the madman. Each release
being accompanied by spare live performances, these cyberpunk releases
gave birth to their new live project: "Mistrust authority -
Promote decentralisation", dedicated to all Lo-Teks (and William
Gibson), in their fight against political and religious suppression.
A project dealing with the media, virtual reality and the future
of the human race. This time they took the meaning of industrial
a step forward. This project balances on the edge of tolerance.
Extreme, structured sound,frequencies that goes straight to the
brain. Back uped with a lo-tek cybervideo and blended with the mystical
and emotional vocals from Yasnaïa, the noise evokes trance.
Trance evokes spiritual dimensions.
"Virtual Impact" the provisional latest Hybryds release,
contains an excellent selection of this powerful live sound and
a live recorded videoclip (made by the Stubnitz crew). As contrast
in the Hybryds apocalyptic live gigs, Yasnaïa brought her solo
project live as a dark, ethnical and more ambient show. A video
based on her dreamscapes and slide projecting creates the athmosphere
for floating and soft danceable rhythms and her esoteric vocals
brings you in a sensual dream state of mind. All these reflections
you can find in the first CD-ROM release of Hybryds; an immense
collection of artwork, video, digital poetry and information of
16 years of Hybryds existance, available for Macintosh and Windows.
Look out for new projects: NA-DHA (Magthea & others), Haydhra
(Magthea & Leigh Hunt) and MesmerEyes (Yasnaia, Djen Ajakan
