Modified presents the NYC debut of one of the master technicians of the minimal Drum+Bass movement!!!
HYBRIS (Metalheadz, Critical, Invisible, Dispatch) [Czech Republic]
Hybris is Evan Vischi. After years of being a studio recluse, Evan surfaced in the DC scene and released collaborations and solo projects under the name Robot Death Squad. He then moved to the Czech Republic to focus on advancing his own sound and began releasing under the name Hybris.
Towards the end of 2009 his tunes were spotted and picked up by Kasra, and his debut single was released on Critical: Modulations (The Cleaner/ Raindance) in June of 2010.
Not long after, a trip to Groningen and a collaboration with Noisia resulted in Crystalline, and in February 2011, the Hybris EP on Noisia's Invisible imprint was released.
Later that year, a meeting with Goldie and Rido resulted in the creation of the Prague Connection EP, a collaborative effort between Rido and Hybris.
Hybris continues to push the limits of his brain and monitors to further uncover new sonic territory
WAVEWHORE (iBreaks, Hardcore Beats, Broke Recordings, Bombtraxx)
With releases on high profile record labels such as iBreaks, Hardcore Beats, Broke, Electrofly and Bombtraxx, New York City based Wavewhore has established himself as one of the USA’s leading electronic bass music producers. His skills behind the decks have also led to headlining appearances across the US, Europe and Asia and his music and DJ performances have been featured on many of the world’s top broadcast media outlets including BBC Radio 1 London, WKTU 103.5 FM New York, KISS FM London, RTE Dublin, Sirius Satellite Radio and MTV.
Wavewhore has been called a “breakbeat master” by Liquid Todd (Sirius Satellite Radio) and “one of the USA’s finest breakbeat DJ/producers” by Jay Cunning (KISS FM London) while Breakbeat Online described him as “NYC’s finest export since the Beastie Boys”. He began his career as a guitarist performing in clubs while he was still in high school and his first electronic release dates back to 1992. His music has also received high level support from many of the top names in the business including Aquasky, DJ Icey, Jackal & Hyde, The Freestylers, General Midi, Elite Force and many more.
Now that dubstep and electro house are incorporating harder-edged sounds and dirty basslines, Wavewhore has also turned his attention to these genres and is currently working on several projects which build on his early production work of drum'n'bass and contemporary dub. These additional musical ventures will continue to feature his signature high energy beats and basslines combined with the quality production and impact that has made his music popular around the world.
Alongside Modified resident DJ:
Nychavok (Pronounced Nigh-Cha-Vok) made his debut in the Summer of 2007. A New York City native, he has been a resident for The Secret Night of Science and Let it Roll, two of NYC's biggest Drum+Bass monthlies at the time. He is also the founder of Alteration, and has recently launched his latest venture into nightlife, Modified, determined to take Bass Music to the next level in NYC and beyond.
