As the trend for chunky techno continues to replace the previous minimal zeitgeist, Northern Irish duo Psycatron have flourished. Seven years of residencies at legendary nights Shine and Stiff Kitten have seen Paul Hamill and Dave Lievense play alongside many of the biggest DJs in the world, absorbing influences and techniques and honing their craft over the years. They’ve had a smattering of output in previous years, but 2009 has seen them graduate into the big league, with stunning releases on Tronic, Planet E, R&S, Cocoon and Simple all identifying them as amongst the most exciting outfits in the genre.
Their tracks combine relentless energy and groove with bundles of emotion and tension, to make for an all-encompassing sound that is perfect for those big arenas and club rooms. Truly 21st century techno.
This mix was recorded live at a recent Bedrock party, with the duo warming up - it's a deep ride, building to more insistent grooves later on.
