BERLIN BASED SOUND ENGINEER & LIVE TECHNO ARTIST
Hybrasil learned his craft working as a house engineer at Temple Lane and Grouse Lodge Studios, where he recorded and produced music on NEVE and SSL Consoles across genres such as Blues, Jazz, Folk Music, World Music and Prog Rock. After many years of honing his skills as a sound engineer with a variety of different artists from different backgrounds, work on the Hybrasil live and studio project began.
In 2005 he took up residency as a radio DJ, presenting a late-night 3 deck mix show inspired by The Wizard on WJLB Detroit. It wasn’t long before Hybrasil was picked up by Irish National Radio. A broadcasting career that eventually spanned a total of twelve years.
The Hybrasil live project debuted in 2016. What followed was a series of digital/vinyl releases on his own eponymous label and a number of key performances at festivals and clubs across the continent. His most ambitious project took five years to develop. For this, he wrote a live show entitled ‘Spaces’, performed before Jeff Mills & the National Concert Orchestra at Dublin’s Bord Gais Theatre.
Shortly after moving to Berlin in 2018, he was welcomed into the Rekids family by Radio Slave, debuting on the label with the ‘Afra EP’ and his debut album ‘Embers’. Since joining the label he has picked up a number of mix credits on Rekids as well as embarking on an audio visual collaboration with Tom Hodgkinson of Bristol based design studio ‘Shop’, which has featured on key releases such as We Don’t Flip, Tuatha De Danann & Dezik (Awesome Soundwave)
