Weekend Psyk: DigiCult LIVE @ the Side Show.

DigiCultThis Saturday, in celebration of reaching the 14 000 fan mark, Cape Town Trance Parties will transform the Side Show into the Psyd Show.

And you know what that means, right? A jam-packed evening of grooving beats, happy stompers, enticing eye candy and plenty of psyk… but wait, it gets better. Not only does the lineup feature insanely skilled local DJs, Cape Town Trance Parties presents DigiCult, the Belgium psy king.

DigiCult was founded in 2003. Ever since, they have been working their way up the psy ladder. These guys have travelled all over the globe to deliver psychadelic madness to the ears of thousands, from Sweden to Ukrain, Greece, Brazil and even Cancun. They’ve played at some of the biggest and well known festivals, including the Tree of Life Festival,  Ozora and Vision Quest. And now DigiCult is ready to venture into Africa’s trance capital, on a mission to tear Cape Town apart, beat by beat.

Their sound is best described as deep, intelligent full-on morning, with a gentle oldschool touch – guaranteed to keep the dance floor pumping.
If you don’t know of DigiCult, take a listen to this special set recorded at Tribal Roots.

deliriant

IN THE PSYK LIGHT is Shane Renew AKA Deliriant.
This 26 year old has had a passion for music ever since he can remember. He started off  DJing for fun while he was still at school and then went on to study sound engineering.

Now, he has 2 full albums and a multitude of single track releases and is signed with  Nexus Media, the psy-baby of Chris Hoy (sHiFtand Liam Gibbs (Slug).

Deliriant’s music is powerful and energetic, riddled with dark, sneaky drops, banging bass-lines and, always, solid groove. Some even describe it as music from the future.

He’s traveled far and wide, delivering banging beats to the ears of many, and recently played at the Full Moon Culture in Lisbon, Portugal.

Listen to his set.

Also look out for Deadbeat FM:
the product of the unholy union between Johnny Rook (Piers) and Deliriant.
As of late, they’re finding  inspiration in crossover sounds. Similar to those of Magitman, D-Nox & Beckers, Lish, Perfect Stranger, Khainz, Miki Litvak and many others.
Stay tuned, I have a feeling that these guys have big things in store for us.

Listen to Deadbeat FM.
