Cresting the modern wave of electronic producers, Psymbionic creates aural experiences that explore the range of multi-tempo Bass Music within an influential and dynamic culture. With an ear for situational relevance, Psymbionic enjoys turning non-traditional sound design and infectious rhythms into dancefloor heat, while also maintaining his history in the downtempo, emotive side of the electronic sound.
John Burcham has been moving bodies and turning heads as Psymbionic for several years in all corners of the USA, playing with acts such as Bassnectar, STS9, Big Gigantic, ill.Gates, Excision, EOTO, and Tipper. His passion and innovation in the music world are showcased through album releases on Muti Music and Mallabel Music, as well as in his role as label manager for the popular Electronic imprint Gravitas Recordings.
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 tension, 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.
Zebbler Encanti Experience
Zebbler Encanti Experience (aka “ZEE”) is an audio/visual collaboration between Boston-based video artist Zebbler and electronic music producer Encanti. The Experience is an immersive performance of mapped visuals on three custom winged projection screens known as the ZEEggurat, synchronized with heavy peak-hour psychedelic bass music, resulting in the creation of a fantasy world for audiences in which to lose themselves.
Cosmal is a Live Music/Art Fusion Duo based out of the Hudson River Valley in New York. Members Ryan Coyle and Alison Lazarus create a radical live performance by blending genre defying music with ecstatically charged painting.
Kyo Uchida is a DJ / producer specializing in psychedelic genres of music that assists in the facilitation of visionary gatherings with his experience in all levels of event production as he continues to hone his skillset and progress on his bardic path.
