Psycatron are production duo Paul Hamill and Phil Johnston. Together they’ve built up a solid reputation over the past few years for their exciting live club sets which have seen them entertain crowds all over Ireland, including some of the finest nights in the land.
Dirty-funk-tech-house-muzik is the name of the game as their combination of loop driven rhythms and dex ‘n’ fx has earned them return gigs at the likes of Shine, Lush, Deep Fried Funk and Bazooka as well as trips to clubs in Dublin, Sligo and Waterford.
They’ve also appeared at the Celtronic Festival for two years running. On the production front their first single ‘Seventh Morning’ was picked up by Sander Kleinenberg who put it on his Renaissance compilation ‘Everybody Too’, before releasing it on his own Little Mountain Records. Their music has caught the imagination of some of the World’s finest dj’s including Deep Dish, John Digweed, Danny Howells and Desyn Maseillo.
They’ve also appeared on numerous compilations for the likes of Wally Lopez and Louis Osbourne with whom they’ve also completed a collaboration set for release on Futureshock’s Pravo imprint this year. Keep an eye out for the massive double a-side ‘Never Wake Up/In The Mood’ which drops on Shine Recordings later this year also.
Alan Ferris makes a long anticipated 8 year return to Belfast Clubbing
A keen collector of vinyl from his teens Alan fell into DJ’ing by accident when he was called upon to DJ in a club in the mid ‘80s because he owned so many records. This led to Alan starting to promote his own indie nights around Belfast as well as becoming the resident indie DJ at the (newly opened) Limelight where he opened for acts such as Happy Mondays, Shamen, The La’s, Big Audio Dynamite, Primal Scream and loads more.
In 1989 he was approached by fellow local DJ’s Dee O’Grady and Keith Connolly to start a new club called Joy which initially played a mixture of indie and the newly emerging acidhouse music. While short lived Joy was very successful and this lead to a move to the Playpenn where the name changed to One World. By this time Alan had abandoned indie music and totally embraced dance music. After a short time in the Mandela Hall, One World moved to the Art College where they quickly fell into a monthly slot alongside the mighty Sugarsweet.
After a few years the name once again changed to the more familiar Choice and they began playing with some of the biggest DJ’s from around the world.
Other notable gigs include supporting The Stone Roses at Maysfield and Leftfield at the Ulster Hall.
In ’97 Alan quit DJ’ing to concentrate on his recording act Welt and has had numerous releases including Disco Sucks which was recorded with Alan Simms and featured the extremly popular Slam remix. Now after 8 years Alan has decided to resume his DJ'ing career.
