Techno Artist Of The Week [AOTW07] – Psycatron

Techno Artist Of  The Week – Psycatron

Berlin: Detroit – a musical alliance that resonates deeply with electronic music lovers around the world and has done for the past two decades. Add Belfast to this equation and you have Irish duo Psycatron who have dropped releases on both sides of the Atlantic through Carl Craig‘s Planet E Communications from Detroit, as well as Berlins’ Tresor imprint, while also finding time for the odd excursion on the likes of Scuba’s Hotflush Recordings, R&S Records, Cocoon and their own Inflyte Records, which alongside being a home for their own output, features techno releases from the likes of Dave Clarke, Vince Watson, Francesco Tristano, Gregor Tresher, Remy, Madben, Ian O’Donovan and Kirk Degiorgio.

Psycatron

Their touring schedule has followed a similar global trajectory, touching down everywhere from Fabric to Berghain, The Rex Club and Barracca, to Movement Festival in Detroit, I Love Techno in Belgium and many more of the best clubs and festivals worldwide. In between tours, they continue their long-standing residency at Ireland’s longest-running techno institution, Shine in Belfast. With musical influences ranging from Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk to Underground Resistance and Jean Michel Jarre, it’s easy to see where the raw emotion, tension and energy prevalent in their music stems from. Being born less than 12 hours apart and subsequently grew up hitting the same techno parties in Belfast, is another common bond that has helped shape the Psycatron sound, where the past clearly influences the future but has an entirely different slant on it. Touring with Carl Craig and Planet E, ending up on Fact Magazines Top 50 Tracks of the year and performing on London’s infamous Boiler Room TV are some of the recent highlight s of this duos career who among their fan count you’ll find the likes Depeche Mode’s Martin L Gore, Francois K and Dave Clarke.

Below you will find a couple of links to their most recent productions and as it happens some of our favourite psycatron musical moments, beginning with their latest techno release on Christian Smith’s excellent Tronic Music label.

Psycatron are Paul Hamill and Dave Lievense.

QUOTE OF THE DAY!

Quote by Derrick May

The music is just like Detroit, a complete mistake. It’s like George Clinton and Kraftwerk are stuck in an elevator with only a sequencer to keep them company.
