Following on from a run of sell out shows over in New Zealand, Hybrid Minds are back with new single, Bad To Me Ft. Grace Grundy, out via Hybrid Music on 14th May.
Independent leaders in the UK drum and bass scene, Hybrid Minds have paved their own way to success through operating from left of centre and keeping true to themselves at every step of the way. Their early tracks, ‘Meant To Be’ and ‘Touch’ firmly established them within the circuit, before they went onto amass 25 million streams for the latter, release a popular debut album and set up their own label, Hybrid Music.
Fast forward a few years and Hybrid Mind’s accolades are endless. Their production skills have helped them earn over 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify and their tracks such as ‘Don't Ever’, ‘Drowning In You’ and remixes for Tom Walker’s ‘Just You And I’ and the mighty Above & Beyond’s ‘Love Is Not Enough’, have seen them earn props from tastemakers the world over, including Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, MistaJam and Pete Tong, to name a few. With a Radio 1 Essential Mix, New Music Friday Spotify playlist support and a Top 10 in Belgium under their belt with their massive Netsky collaboration ‘Let Me Hold You’, they show no signs of slowing.
While others spent 2020 longing for the return of live shows and gigs, Hybrid Minds were hand picked to become the voice of Kiss FM’s newest Monday night primetime radio show where they showcase the very best in drum&bass music. The duo, not known for their ability to sit still, have just returned home from an impressive sold out tour of New Zealand which saw them play to fans far and wide across a mighty month long tour. This re-entry into the world of touring following such a tumultuous year for the industry fell in line with the guys announcing that their ‘Outline’ o2 Academy, Brixton show this Autumn is officially sold out, six months out! Now with a jam packed summer of festivals including Reading & Leeds, Creamfields, Nass, Parklife and many more, Hybrid Minds are set for a busy few months as they gear up for the release of their new single, ‘Bad To Me’ Ft Grace Grundy.
Speaking about the new release they said:
“We wanted to make something with as much emotion as possible and as soon as we heard Grace we knew she was the perfect voice for our sound. We wanted the lyrics to be reflected in the mood and energy of the song and it turned out exactly as we imagined. We are super proud of it."
The first single to arrive from their upcoming EP, which is set to drop following a massive Pendulum collab due this summer, ‘Bad To Me’ is a soon to be liquid drum and bass anthem. Flexing their impeccable production skills, ‘Bad To Me’ features futuristic pads and melodic piano samples, which are soared over by Grace Grundy’s hypnotic vocals, destined to be a favourite with the singalong crew.
Hybrid Minds - ‘Bad To Me’ Ft. Grace Grundy is out on the 14th May via Hybrid Music.
