A punk from the very beginning, and having dabbled in various genres of music right from drum and bass to acid techno, Joe Markendale finally stumbled upon the world of psytrance and fell in love with it unconditionally. Following his first tryst with psytrance culture, Joe went on to be a part of Organized Kaos, a bunch of enthusiastic trance-heads who organized parties in the captivating forest of Kent. This led to the spawning of Sonic Species; a hardened name in the psytrance culture by now. Conceptualized in 2008, Sonic Species is a project led by Joe Markendale, hailing from Brighton.
Sonic Species debuted in the international circuit with “Lost Transmission,” under Alchemy Records, which became an instant hit among the masses. The rise was followed by the release of 2009's “Bend The Future” and finally the EP, Machina Terra, that further cemented Sonic Species in the global Psytrance scene. Having recently released an EP in collaboration with Killerwatts, aptly titled Sonic Species vs. Killerwatts, it has already managed to climb the ladder on various Top 10 Charts.
