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.

Review: Perfect Stranger- Multiverz

I woke up to the exciting news on Friday morning that I was one of three lucky prizewinners for the Psymedia Giveaway I wrote about earlier this week (read it here).  Upon arrival at Trinity, I received an awesome Multiverz hamper (that included 2 tickets to the Event, 4 Perfect Stranger CDs and 2 T-shirts).  What a way to start the evening! Congratulations to the other prizewinners: Cheslyn Oliver and Casey Lynn Curtis. I hope you jammed as hard as I did. ______________________________________________________________ multied Snap shot I took. StereoType had Trinity pumping from the get-go, and warming up the crowd nicely before main attraction, Perfect Stranger, took center stage. The atmosphere on the dance-floor was truly incredible, there were happy faces all around. After 3 blissfully progressive hours, it was Dave Mac’s turn to make turn to keep the dance-floor buzzing ’til the lights came on. And he did. Dave was even kind enough to give the crowd “one last song!” Scott Rennie captured the evening’s events on camera. View the photo’s here.

As you can see, the eye-candy was out of this world. From the trippy decor to one of the best light shows I have ever experienced at a party, well done to ImageMasterBlinkSLAVE and MULTIVERZ for keeping us positively hypnotised.

Plusminus had the dancefloor stomping HEAVY with their Harlem Shake remix.

Sure enough, the Harlem Shake craze has died down but  Mike Mike Van As and David Coe (aka Plusminusremain a top players in keeping up with trends and making music that psyks up the dancefloor, both indoor and outdoor.

Find out more about Plusminus in their interview from My City By Night.

Another local psy sensation tearing up the city at the moment is, of course, The Commercial Hippies.

Who are they? 

Anton Raubenheimer and Gareth Tacon.

Since their first release “where dreams come from” on Nano Records received such positive feedback, The Commercial Hippies have been flourishing and flourishing.

Check out their latest release, a remix of the super popular South African band LARK. It’s a personal favourite.
