Q&A with Skyrager

As one half of the acclaimed production duo Psychemagik, Danny McLewin alias Skyrager is widely known and respected as one of the UK’s deepest vinyl explorers. Operating within the farthest reaches of the musical galaxy, his ear is expertly tuned to all manner of auditory treats spanning lo-fi private press gems, weird euro balearica, tiny label anomalies, mind blowing homemade jazz excursions, disco weirdos and uber exotic soundtrack bombs from the other side of the planet, with plenty more in-between. Armed with a huge library of lovingly curated otherworldly music obtained from years of passion, Skyrager will share some of the fruits of his labour on this Healthy Yummies mix.

We thought it’d be fun to do a little Q&A with Skyrager so here goes:

BEST SCENE EVER

“I mean how long is a piece of string.. but when Keith from ’Nuts In May’ loses his temper and tries to attack an unruly camper with a stick shouting ‘I’ll bash your head in’ is definitely up there.”

ONE OF YOUR MOST LOVED SOUNDTRACKS

“‘Harold & Maude’ – ‘Cat Stevens’ is the perfect synergy of music and film.”

LAST SUPPER

“Lobster Thermidor dripping in garlic butter & French Fries”

GUILTY PLEASURE

“Super Duper Burger in San Francisco!”

WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO COOK?

“Scrambled eggs with chives and goats cheese on sourdough is a game changer.”

So that concludes our Q&A with Skyrager – now let’s get to the music.

As part of our monthly guest DJ sets on #Mixcloud and next in the line-up to continue our monthly sessions is Skyrager, who will be kicking us off with this…
