Exclusive interview with Myzo (Global Army Music)

Lili Vermaak, or rather Djane Myzo, is a psytrance deity hailing from Lisbon, Portugal. Following the success of her debut album “Super Cereal” in 2012, Myzo has continued to captivate audiences far and near with her energetic twilight beats and entrancing live performances. The talented psy-sister is signed to multiple labels including Global Army Music, Terror Lab Industries and Magnetika Female Agency. Myzo currently resides in Fish Hoek, Cape Town with husband and collaborator Stuart Vermaak (a.k.a Hiyarant) who forms the second half of the deadly Hiyamyzo duo. We got chatting to the mysterious Myzo; here’s what went down.

Getting psyked all over the globe!

Everyday I experience a small wave of excitement when I log onto my blog’s stats.

What’s most mind-blowing for me is that I’m sitting somewhere, at the tip of Africa, writing about what’s going on in our little city, and sharing it with people I never imagined I’d talk to… and so fast!



This world really has become a global village thanks to the internet, as well as the psytrance and culture that connects people all over the planet. And a small but beautiful planet it is. 


Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, where-ever you are.
I hope you’re getting psyked in your city.

Just for fun…
Watch a snippet from this year’s Alien Safari: Masqued Ball.
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. 


With so much happening in the city this weekend,
you have every reason to psyk your heart out.
