The UK duo, known for their beautiful production work, prolific remixing skills, obscenely vast record collections, and transcendent mixtape journeys, are being heralded as a truly unique and positive presence in today’s music scenes.
Psychemagik’s first appearance on wax was an edit of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Everywhere’, which quickly found its way into the record bags of veterans like Tom Middleton and Greg Wilson. The duo have since released an impressive array of highly acclaimed original productions, remixes and edits. They now regularly play at major festivals, clubs and special events around the globe. Including two USA Tours in the first half of 2013.
Their mixes paint the story of two extraordinarily talented and passionate guys. Some blatantly show that Psychemagik can absolutely dominate a dance floor. Others, like their guest mixes for the Test Pressing podcast, are gorgeously composed psychedelic experiences, which give you an idea of just how deep and amazing their record collections really are. Basically, you can bet that they have the perfect record for any time and any place.
