Psymbionic Releases Debut EP “Illusions”, Out Now On Made In Glitch
Plus Free Original Mashup Featuring Chromeo
The debut EP from Austin, TX producer Psymbionic arrives today on California-based Made In Glitch. Drawing on a wide array of influences, the “Illusions” EP traverses the spectrum of bass music with five tracks that weigh in on multiple sub genres of Dubstep. The title track “Illusions”, featuring San Francisco MC Joe Mousepad, takes a page from UK Grime and shares some Garage energy with the more contrasted “Amalgamaelstrom”. Both “Oscillating Orbs” (w/ ONE4ALL) and “Space Monkey” stylistically derive from more instrumental hip hop roots, utilizing engaging rhythms and shuffle. A collaboration effort with A/V artist Pharo brings up the rear, titled “Scooby Don’t”, providing heavy vibes and a spooky overtone. This strong debut offers a better taste of the originality that has brought much acclaim to Psymbionic’s remixes, and predicts a bright and fruitful future for the energetic producer.

As a part of the upcoming generation of electronic music producers, Psymbionic creates aural experiences that demonstrate the possibility for multi-tempo Bass Music and culture to exist within a range of more divergent influences.
With this latest project, John Burcham has been moving bodies and turning heads for several years, playing with acts such as Bassnectar, STS9, Beats Antique, ill.Gates, Excision, EOTO, and Tipper. In addition to festival appearances that include Nocturnal, Wakarusa, and Sonic Bloom, Psymbionic demonstrates heavy involvement both on the stage and behind the scenes at electronic showcases such as his local SXSW in Austin, TX. Burcham’s work informs his repertoire with roots in the furthest reaches of the electronic music scene, and grants him a unique perspective on each crowd through the latest developments of the industry.
In a live show context, Psymbionic confronts mixes that are limited to the scope of the build and release, avoiding an industry epidemic of drop-monotony that overpowers the flow of music. Burcham seeks to prove that there are more powerful influences in moving a crowd than simple anticipation, providing an interwoven dynamic that relies on the strength of his blend, rather than the sole force or familiarity of the apex.
Psymbionic’s theory of music is a journey that doesn’t visit the same place twice, building excitement for what’s next not because you can anticipate it, but because you’ve never been there before.
