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.

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.
