Recorded and produced in a mere three weeks after lockdown regulations took hold in their home Berlin, Placid House is an album of beatless ambient music made in and for these unprecedented times. Its eight instrumental tracks capture the essence of our trying times and transform it into sonic relief.
The growing number and diversity of Psycho & Plastic's releases are testimony to their prowess as producers, composers, and performers. They won acclaim from international publications such as Data Transmission, FAZEmag, DJ Mag Espana and others. In 2019, Psycho & Plastic's music was championed by the late Andrew Weatherall in his last mix for BBC Radio 6 Music.
Trained musicians who have been working together for years, Alexandre Decoupigny and Thomas Tichai display stunning musicianship in their output. They also regularly tear up clubs and dance floors with rambunctious live sets of tripped out house and techno.
In true independent spirit, the duo operate their own label GiveUsYourGOLD, a home to Psycho & Plastic and a growing number of other artists and their nonconformist music.
