Once upon a time, the only way you could find live & DJ sets were by visiting simple web sites full of links that may or may not work or by spending hours on P2P networks. I decided to build this website to add some organization to my growing set collection and provide an easy place to download, stream, and discuss all of these great sets!
hybridized.org's goal is to contain as many high quality sets from our artists as possible while maintaining the full support of each artist. This site truly wouldn't be what it is today without the wonderful support of all of our artists! They are on the cutting edge of online music by agreeing to allow their live and DJ sets to be shared freely. Thanks guys!
Tracklistings have been compiled with the help of our great fan community. Since implementing a Wiki system for tracklistings, nearly all new sets are fully spotted within days!
Special thanks to the following people for their help and support!
J. Scott G. and Jason Blum of Deepsky.
Marcus Andrew and Ned Shepard of Digital Witchcraft.
Ruin and McRae of Grayarea.
Mike Truman, Chris Healings, and Adam Taylor of Hybrid.
Alex Hall and Peter Determan of Marscruiser.
Danny, Mike and Jase of NuBreed.
Colin and Justin Moreh of Shiloh.
Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff of Way Out West.
Martin Wharton for the killer logo!
About me (Andy Grundman):
I'm a 26 year old web/software developer currently working for Computer Sciences Corporation
as a consultant to Marconi Corp. in Warrendale, PA (several miles north of Pittsburgh). I'm a huge fan of most all progresive breaks artists. Nick Ludlam was the first to begin hosting Hybrid live sets on his
website, and I set up a companion site with bare links in 2002.
One weekend while bored in February 2003, I got to thinking about the best way to run a website based around mix set mp3's,
and after 2 days of non-stop coding (just ask my wife!), hybridized.org was born!
In case you're wondering, (and you're probably not), my musical tastes include some of the following styles:
Progressive Breaks/House/Trance (too many to list :)
Downtempo/Lo-Fi (Ian O'Brien, Caia, Four Tet...)
Trip-Hop (Lamb, Hooverphonic, Kosheen...)
Ambient (Delerium, Conjure One, Enigma...)
Psytrance/Goa (Shpongle, Infected Mushroom...)
Industrial (Front Line Assembly, Noise Unit, and all other Leeb/Fulber projects)
New Age (David Arkenstone, Tangerine Dream, Ralf Illenberger...)
Instrumental Jazz (Acoustic Alchemy, Spyro Gyra...)
Currently I'm really digging:
