Psyboriginal is Marc Freund from Sydney, Australia Since 2004, his live sets have focused on spawning an environment conducive for explosive, energetic, and sometimes unpredictable trance floor reverberations. The Psybo-sound depicts that indescribable moment between night and day- ethereal and uplifting to bring in the morning, yet mysterious and menacing enough to wreck nocturnal havoc.

Marc's versatility as an artist is further evident in the incorporation of guitar and vocals in a few of his tracks. The Psyboriginal sound is one that is constantly changing and evolving; during his time in Belgium in 2004, Marc became decidedly influenced by morning Psytrance. However, upon returning to his native Australia, things took a trip to the dark(er) side, as his music adapted both a harder, more sinister edge as well as greatly increasing in overall doofability.

The present end result- a unique style that weaves together all the right elements, fabricating a perfect groove guaranteed to ignite any legion of doofers with positive vibes. In the past he has worked alongside fellow Aussie producers Fractal Glider and Legohead Illusion of Self. As well as some recent collaborations with Hydraglyph and Slum.

His Chill-Out music also has a unique style, and is a rich blend of live guitar, floating melodies, whacky samples, whales, dogs, monkeys, cows, lions, tigers, birds, opera singers, didgeridoo, bag pipes, Jews harp, laptop, and a partridge in a pear tree!

Little they knew of the forthcoming success that was about to hit their door in short time’s notice.

After one year of mediocrity and a fact that they did not receive any kind of help by no one little by little the group became a recognized and distinguished band in the psychedelic trance scene worldwide. Always with a strictly psychedelic and full electronic sound the duo deviated a lot as years went by a fact that caused much controversy and flame in all arrays of electronic music fans.
