A Psychic Yes is the alias of British, Berlin based artist, carpenter and DJ, Timothy Crombie. Timothy has released records on some of the most interesting and out there labels at the moment, most recently Nummer’s self titled imprint and the ever impressive, ear to the ground; Kalahari Oyster Cult. His music touches off blends of percussive UK techno stylings with a nod to DIY bleep and yet has an air of leftfield ambient if that makes any sense? Either way, its with these stylings too that Timothy constructs sets, be it live or DJ, with these inspirations in mind and takes Off The Record 38 into similar patterns. We had a very quick chat to Timothy about the mix and some quick other bits.
Hey Tim, thanks for joining us! Can you tell us about your mix and what the idea behind it was?
I made it first thing on Sunday morning, 5th feb. I didn’t go in with a specific idea but instead pressed record and went easy on myself about being too obsessive over details.
Can you tell us a bit about how you usually approach recording a mix or a set?
Many specific little ideas, and endless edits of possible tracklists and then forgetting everything I wrote down.
What are your preferred methods for finding new music—do you still enjoy digging around in dusty crates, or do you prefer to buy online?
What do you both have up your sleeve for 2023?
Hopefully more live shows that I can bring my Roland R8 to! ha
