He played at various events in the uk in the last year from Bourne Slippery (Slaters and Frenchs Duex) to Sambar and one or two Beach partys around Eastbourne and Hastings.
In Mr Robinson’s words: :I would say my music is about the style I play has from a Funky house, Electro to psytrance, it can be trancey baleric and have an uplifting smile sound, sometimes dark, light and warm all after each other. I like to lift people then drop them into a warm happy break that inspires rather than enquirers, but that would be giving it away. I also enjoy large build ups and complete changes.”
At present Psynoise enjoys playing psytrance, but this versatile artist does not limit himself to any one style of music, so Mr Robinson’s flexible nature, and true, genuine love of music, allows him to please and interact with diverse crowds, with old school funk to psytrance.
He makes sure his crowd experiences the feeling of being one with the music. Mind, body & soul become captivated by the uplifting sounds, causing bodies to ebb & flow to every beat, every movement a pulse of energy igniting the dance floor into a unison of pure musical euphoria.
