In this week's episode of The Going Out Podcast, hosts Georgia and Pippa welcome Josh White - one half of respected electronic DJ and production duo, Hybrid Minds - for a quick chat about his earliest 'going out' experiences.
Unquestionably one of the UK's biggest and most prolific liquid drum n bass acts, Hybrid Minds - aka long-time buddies Josh White and Matt Lowe - have been a hugely significant aspect of the scene for almost a decade.
Releasing a handful of critically acclaimed studio albums throughout their career thus far, alongside numerous well received EP's and a tonne of club destroying singles (2013's Mountains, 2015's Lifted and 2017's Elements...), the pair have achieved something of a legendary status amongst their peers and fans of drum n bass the world over.
Praised for their proficiency in production, creating their own fresh take on a classic liquid D'n'B sound, the twosome's output oscillates wildly between moments of melodic serenity, with vocal appearances from a range of emerging talents - the likes of Tiffani Juno and Charlotte Haining - and euphoric, high-energy breaks. A danceable sound that continues to impress and win over audiences at clubs and festivals across the globe.
Revisiting his youth, Josh recalls his very first encounters with drum n bass, piecing together memories from illegal raves and describing nights out at clubs across London, including one of the capitals most celebrated music venues - Fabric. He also explains how studying other DJs helped to him to become a better artist, as well as talking about the huge drum n bass scene in New Zealand and revealing the names of the up and comers both himself and Matt White are extremely excited about.
