Scotland‘s acclaimed DJs Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes have shunned their tech-house guise in favor of a danceable psyche-rock compilation. Featuring stoner anthems from many generations, these 24 bangers could satiate house-party Hessians and crazed club kids alike. Psyche Out begins with a bass-driven Hawkwind jam, proceeds through an 808-dominated Carl Craig remix of Throbbing Gristle, and somehow finds solace in The Temptations’ “Poppa Was A Rollin’ Stone.” Without any psychedelic clichés or predictable mixes, Psyche Out maintains a wholly transcendent tone with textured samples, analog fuzz, and an incessant groove that displays the duo’s matured dance mastery.
