Psychonavigation Records kicks off 2011 with the self titled debut album from 'Maschine'.
All tracks were produced and composed between 1997 and 2006. Maschine are Eoin Coughlan and Aza Hand. The bray, Co.Wicklow duo formed in 1997 and up to last year they both have been quietly rocking the underground electronic scene through their unique live performances. Recently hand has left the band to concentrate on a sound engineering career leaving Coughlan to continue on the project.
Coughlan comes from a musical background (his mother is the accomplished Irish jazz and blues singer Mary Coughlan) and throughout the album you can hear how he has absorbed the sounds of early Jazz and Classical music which he mixes over complex beats.
The album takes you the listener on a journey through many different styles of electronica encompassing Ambient, Electro, Breaks and Drum n Bass.
