An artist who draws on the core values of classic house, funk and disco artists while adding his own distinctive flair, Folamour came back in 2019 with his new album "Ordinary Drugs", following Umami in 2017, and is another impossibly blissed-out affair for the soul that comes with a backstory from the artist himself.
Hybrid Minds are a phenomenon of soulful drum & bass music.
With a history of trailblazing releases, including many on their own Hybrid Music label, they've established themselves as one of the most important acts in the scene.
As their recent international booking schedule shows – including stop-offs at Let it Roll, Liquicity, Rampage, and FM4 Festival – they've accumulated a passionate, global army of fans.
The uncompromising beauty of their music, coupled with an unerring instinct for connecting with an audience, means that witnessing their live DJ sets – often accompanied by regular MC, Tempza – is a bucket-list experience for all true D&B fans.
After receiving plaudits for their debut “Mountains” album, their second, “Elements”, takes us on a journey through the multiple facets to their sound, and shines a light on some of the best vocalists in the scene. Running the gamut of emotions from hope to heartache, it's no wonder the music of Hybrid Minds has struck a chord with so many people.
And their live Outline concept featuring Tempza & Charlotte Haining brings a whole new perspective to the Hybrid Minds story. Garnering huge acclaim wherever discerning heads are found, they blend crate-dug classics, brand new material, and more leftfield selections to create unique moments for their audience every time.
These are Hybrid Minds, creators of powerful and sublime drum & bass. And there are many more chapters of the story left to come. Pay close attention.

Andre “Shy FX” Williams has quietly been one of the most influential British producers of the last 25 years.
