Cresting the modern wave of electronic producers, Psymbionic creates aural experiences that explore the range of multi-tempo Bass Music within an influential and dynamic culture. With an ear for situational relevance, Psymbionic enjoys turning non-traditional sound design and infectious rhythms into dancefloor heat, while also maintaining his history in the downtempo, emotive side of the electronic sound.

John Burcham has been moving bodies and turning heads as Psymbionic for several years in all corners of the USA, playing with acts such as Bassnectar, STS9, Big Gigantic, ill.Gates, Excision, EOTO, and Tipper. His passion and innovation in the music world are showcased through album releases on Muti Music and Mallabel Music, as well as in his role as label manager for the popular Electronic imprint Gravitas Recordings.

In a live show context, Psymbionic confronts mixes that are limited to the scope of the build and release, avoiding an industry epidemic of drop-monotony that overpowers the flow of music. Burcham seeks to prove that there are more powerful influences in moving a crowd than simple tension, providing an interwoven dynamic that relies on the strength of his blend, rather than the sole force or familiarity of the apex.

Psymbionic's theory of music is a journey that doesn't visit the same place twice, building excitement for what's next not because you can anticipate it, but because you've never been there before.

It's no secret that Agent is one of Richmond, VA's most intuitive DJ's / Producers. Intuitive in the music he fuses together and unique in the connections and appeal to promoters and fans. Agent utilizes his mind as well as his hands when producing and mixing music for his crowd. The pulsating bass and popping synth mean everything to him when he takes the helm of the decks, and he will adjust and fluctuate the flow of music to match your body's rhythm. Specific to the EDM scene, Agent is known for his dark house, cringing electro, and his vibratory bass drops. Of course as a hybrid to the underground and club scene, Agent will take your favorite song live and remix it for you live with an underground feel.

Born in 1985 Agent started learning to spin at age 12 from his father in Germany who was formerly a DJ in his home state of California. Growing up in Germany provided a unique opportunity for him to DJ at an underground club in Kaiserslautern, Germany at age 15 where he understood that at the helm of his hands, was the control of every dancer's night. He could either ruin it or make it. That's the principle that has stuck with Agent ever since that day he went live... To MAKE it...
