Hypnocoustics is a partnership project between Joe Studt and Benjamin Wood, two producers from London who have been making electronic music since 2004. Joe & Ben share a diverse musical background; ranging from psychedelic rock/stoner bands and Djing, through to modern music production and classical training.
Over the last two years, Hypnocoustics have been developing a deep and immersive morning sound packed with hypnotic soundscapes, mesmeric textures, driving percussion and intricate musical arrangements. Performing using a combination of synth work, Ableton performance and sample manipulation, the Hypnocoustics live act is being regularly developed and road tested at some of the best parties on the circuit.
Hypnocoustics’ first EP release, Buddha Nature (March 2011 BMSS Records) topped the Juno Downloads ‘Most Popular Psytrance Album’ category for 2 weeks and with several other released planned for 2012, the project is hoping to see similar successes in the near future.
To date, Hypnocoustics have shared line-ups and stages with artists including Man with No Name, Tristan, Liquid Ross, Mr Peculiar, Andromeda, Vibrasphere, Silicon Sound, Tron, Flooting Grooves and many others; as well as rocking dancefloors in the UK, Greece, Germany, Lithuania, Switzerland and France.
