The UK duo, known for their beautiful production work, prolific remixing skills, obscenely vast record collections, and transcendent mixtape journeys, are being heralded as a truly unique and positive presence in today’s music scenes.
“Stars Of 2012′ – Mixmag
Psychemagik’s first appearance on wax was an edit of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Everywhere’, which quickly found its way into the record bags of veterans like Tom Middleton and Greg Wilson. The duo have since released an impressive array of highly acclaimed original productions, remixes and edits. They now regularly play at major festivals, clubs and special events around the globe. Including two USA Tours in the first half of 2013.
“Fucking Brilliant” – DJ Mag
Their studio output is prolific to say the least; original productions such as Valley Of Paradise and the Lunar Escape EP, recent remix projects include Bryan Ferry, Haim, Boy George, Mirror People, Azari & III, Metronomy, Kauf and Mirror People.
“First-choice remixers that crisscross genres and scene affiliations” – Thump
And then there’s the edits. Their recent version of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’, a follow up to ‘Everywhere’, topped the Hype Machine charts and has gained some serious props from around the globe. They have also released a whole host of edits on their Healin’ Feelin and Discotheque Wreckers imprints, all of which made the Juno top sellers list.
“Spectacular …such class and style” – KCRW
Their mixes paint the story of two extraordinarily talented and passionate guys. Some blatantly show that Psychemagik can absolutely dominate a dancefloor. Others, like their guest mixes for the Test Pressing podcast, are gorgeously composed psychedelic experiences, which give you an idea of just how deep and amazing their record collections really are. Basically, you can bet that they have the perfect record for any time and any place.
“Perfectly deconstructed Hot Chip’s sound for their support slot…Fantastic!”– Songkick
They also have a reputation as the go to guys for mega rare records and samples that you won’t find anywhere else. Their satisfied customers include 2 Many Dj’s/Soulwax, Chemical Brothers, Q-Tip, Fake Blood amongst many others.
It is this incredible ear for musical treasures and their dedication to the art of digging that has lead to the success of their recent compilations, Psychemagik Presents: ‘Magik Cyrkles’ and Psychemagik Presents: ‘Magik Sunrise’ on Leng Records, both of which sold out worldwide on vinyl within hours of release and featured in the top 5 of most good record shops bestsellers lists.
With a wealth of upcoming releases just around the corner, they’ve already set the controls for the heart of the sun and will be heading into a whole new stratosphere of creativity.

Joakim (Tigersushi) – live – “Tropics Of Love” Album Release Party
Joakim is one of France’s foremost electronic musicians, but remains, stylistically, hard to pin down. With a background in classical music, indie rock and mid 90s electronic music it becomes apparent that his lineage has much to do with his breeding.
Our story starts at University, where Joakim found himself the surrogate father of a synthesiser after a departed campus mate callously left it in his room. The debut album ‘Tiger Sushi’ was composed entirely of free-jazz samples in a cheap studio setup, before moving into more personal territory with 2003’s sophomore album ‘Fantômes.’ In 2007 we saw the release of the ambitious Monsters and Silly Songs’ , combining post-punk, disco, electronics and, well, silly songs.
From here Joakim went a short road of discovery through the media of the Remix, enjoying a prolific period remixing artists such as Goldfrapp, Friendly Fires, DJ Mehdi, Cut Copy, Tiga, Fisherspooner, Late of Pier, Max Berlin and Zombie Zombie amongst others. The former informed Joakim’s latest album ‘Milky Ways’ (2009) which combined the charm of Kosmische with the efficiency of Pop Music. “Making a pure dance album would almost be like composing an album entirely in F major,” says Joakim. “I jump from one idea to the next. I simply have to try everything and see where it leads, to find my way.”
In 2011, Joakim released his 4th album entitled “Nothing Gold” on Tigersushi.
