Hybrids is a 1999 remix album by The Creatures (aka singer Siouxsie Sioux and percussionist Budgie). The tracks included are remixes of their songs recorded between 1998 and early 1999.

Most of the songs are extended mixes. Several were previously released on 12" promo singles and CD singles, but others were completely remade.

The Independent on Sunday noted that some remixes were created by different artists: "This is the pick of a crop that includes Howie B., Witchman and The Beloved, plus newer artists such as Icarus or Dr Psyche. While there are some chunky beats and catchy loops, it's better suited to home listening rather than the dancefloor".[1]

Q's Victoria Segal said: "So Howie B takes a knife to the sexually watchful 'Prettiest Thing'; Black Dog unbolt the beats of 'Guillotine' into disjunctive abstraction, and Witchman has his evil way with 'Say'. Twice. Running its finger along the cutting edge, Hybrids is a bravely bloody genetic experiment."[2]
