Mystic State are an electronic music production duo from Bristol, UK, comprising of members Will Marquiss and Mike Holliday. After perfecting the art of turntablism from their early teens, the pair turned their attention to studying music production, and Mystic State was born. After years of honing their craft, their crystal clear productions are instantly recognizable, with the duo's signature sound being a fusion of late 90's jungle, dub and ambient, layered with film dialogue and intricately placed samples. In 2020, the duo released their debut solo album, "My Own private Island", on their own imprint The Chikara Project, which was met to critical acclaim, and they have also found a steady home for their dubstep output on J:Kenzo's label Artikal Music, where they released the EP's "Mahdi" and "Tomahawk", both which are widely considered some of the finest dubstep releases of the time, and received heavy support from across the scene as well as nominations for "Best Release" at The Duploc Awards. Mystic State's music has received support from titans such as Noisia, Truth, Calibre, Om Unit, J:Kenzo, Koan Sound and many more. As of 2022, Mystic State have just signed their debut EP with Truth's label Deep, Dark & Dangerous, have their third Artikal Music EP on the way, and are finalising their sophomore solo album.
