Today we are very excited to deliver Noontide–a new full-length offering from Peter Ricq and Robbie Slade.
Robbie had a few words to share on the project:
“We're really excited about this new music. I say new, but in reality some of these songs have been bouncing around in mine and Peter's head for a long time. We listened to some old songs and saw new potential. We stripped them down (see All My) or reinforced as necessary. We filled some out with grand piano (see Gotta Go Home), we turned off all the lights at times (see Dub Paris). We wrote some in the studio in a sloppy state (see At the Beach). The resulting album, we hope, is something that you can listen to for years to come. We'd like to extend a huge thank you to Nik Kozub, who produced this album over a year ago with us. His talent, experience and fine taste helped take this album to the next level.”

After just surpassing our 20th release as a label, its fitting, upon our 3 year anniversary, that we should come full circle with Humans' Noontide. Hybridity has pushed through the years to put out music that is both eclectic in its sounds, while keeping electronic composition and instrumentation at its core. 'Noontide' exemplifies this as a whole. The work that both Peter and Robbie put into this album is incredible. They've spent years working through each track (and sometimes longer), and then went into the studio with Nik Kozub where they spent weeks on end focused on creating what is a timeless album and a testament to their musicality and ethic. Like all Humans albums before, the artwork is done by Peter, and in an interesting twist this cover shows the pose Robbie is so well known for in a moment of excitement, and quite fitting a time such as this long anticipated album. It's with great excitement that we release 'Noontide' today, which is at its core genre agnostic through space and time.
