DJ Psykhomantus (UK)

Psykhomantus bridges the gap and connects the dots between Hip Hop and other progressive music genres as well as showcasing the whole spectrum of Turntablism. Mantus is known for Playing Past (Motown, Soul, Funk), Present (Hip Hop, Soulful House) and Future (Broken Beat, Nu Jazz, Electronica) music in his set. 

Founder of the rap music video web series 'VisionBombing', DJ, turntablist, UK DMC Champion and former member of the DJ/Turntablist crew A Few Good Men, Psykhomanus has entertained at comedy clubs and spoken word events as well as festivals – DJ Psykhomantus is something of an anomaly when it comes to his mixes in music of multiple fields and takes his listeners on a musical journey. Inspired by DJ Cash Money, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Spinna and DJ Spinbad, his love of music shines through in everything he does on two turntables and a mixer. Psykhomantus has also been working as a musical director since 2003 and live on stage in theatre, including Kwesi Johnson's 2006 Hip Hop theatre hit show 'A Hiphopstory' and resident DJ/Producer for Jonzi D's Open Art Surgery' and 'Freesyle Funk Forum' by Breakin' Convention. Psykhomantus is passionate about taking turntablism into theatre and his 2013 project, 'Drunken Juggles: The Eight Drunken Immortals Technique' was performed at Birmingham's Hippodrome Theatre.
