'Cinematic' is a term long associated with acclaimed dance-music innovators Hybrid -and that widescreen emphasis comes even more into focus on Hybrid's ground-breaking new double-disc mix collection, Soundsystem 01 (Hope Recordings). "We're on the opposite end of minimal -more maximal really," explains Mike Truman, who with Chris Healings forms Hybrid's creative core. "It's ingrained in us. We've always wanted these expansive sounds behind everything, which makes our songs so cinematic." "Making big noises is what we do," adds Healings. "It’s our calling card. But whether we use electronics, string orchestras, or brass, our songs always take the listener somewhere, which is where the cinematic tag comes from."
