Stars aligned the meeting place has been set for this anticipated collaboration.
Whilst they really should be finishing their respective debut LPs, they’re traveling up to London armed with bags of vinyl, specially prepared edits and a shit-ton of weird lights and visuals to create a psychedelic haven to help you loose your s**t! The venue is a real winner - tucked away just off london fields and behind Mare st this warehouse space feels more like a quirky living room with a pop up bar and oversized sound system, on top of this the drink prices will not damage your wallet - perfect!
Tucked away in their remote cosmic forest studio, Psychemagik are busy welding together a whole universe of lush, delirious, tripped out audio sonics for their long awaited studio album due for release late summer 2011.
The first official 12" from this LP 'Valley Of Paradise/Star Lazer' is due for release on limited edition, hand numbered, coloured vinyl in May. They are also releasing an obscure edits album on Ambassadors Reception this summer, the first twelve 'Ass Nation/Move Your Butt' Scheduled for June/July.
As well as releasing edits on the super chic History Clock label, their stalwart end of nighter and festival anthem (Summer Of Love edit of Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere) has been supported by Dj's all around the world from Rob Da Bank on BBC Radio 1, Chris Coco on Melodica Radio and had the honour of being the last track at the closing partyat Space in Ibiza. Other remixes and edits have also been getting plays by Lauren Laverne and Nemone on BBC Radio 6 and they have just featured a guest dj mix for Annie Nightingale for Radio 1, preview it here:
They've also just released a kaleidoscopic, mind bending compilation on Light Sounds Dark Records 'After The Void' which has had love from Todd Terje, 2 Many Dj's, Lexx, Felix Dickenson and Jaz to name a few...
Soft Rocks are putting the finishing touches to their ‘difficult first album’, which is due to see the light of day on ESP Institute later this year. They’ve also got a number of remixes in the pipeline including the Beautiful Swimmers and Runaway. On the side they’ve also found the time to launch their own record label for other people’s music - Kinfolk, and record a mix CD called ‘Welcome to Our Barndance’.
Their DJ schedule has taken them from Moscow to San Francisco, super club to supper club, boats, fields, mountain tops and basements.
