PsychoFreud aka Anders Figenschow from Norway has been very busy the last 16 years. Being an active hiphop producer at the age of 17, he spent most of his time producing and touring. Having a strong love for reggae music, his production had strong influences from it even back then. In 1993 a ragga jungle CD caught his attention, and while the fast and hard breaks really appealed to him, he firmly established “it was reggae”. The basslines, vocals, and the soul itself of the tunes, were already based on reggae tracks he already loved. PsychoFreud started producing ragga jungle as soon as he came to hear it – where the influences came from producers like Shy FX, Micky Finn, Dillinja, and DJ Zinc. Ragga jungle evolved quickly over the years, and separated into several branches, like todays harder drumandbass. Congo Natty Records and Knowledge & Wisdom, who had been early out with genre shaping tunes, started releasing drumandbass with ragga vocals in it rather than the mashup style which had been the first to come. Strongly influenced by this turn, PsychoFreud made several tunes around the change of the millennium, and released his first ragga drumandbass tune on vinyl, as a remix on a norwegian hiphop EP, in 2001. He realized that around this time, there were several producers flooding the market with just about everything they made, be it good or bad, and he decided to instead focus on free internet distribution of his music. “Deliver Me”, one of his jungle tunes made in 1998, is still one of his most requested tracks today.

His reggae soundsystem, Vikings Champion Sound, founded in 1998, also grew these years, and it was only natural to expand to the use of jungle within the sound. Vikings Champion Sound also added a new member early on, DJ Vicious-E, one of Norway’s hardest working dancehall DJ’s.

In 2006, after having freely given out many tunes on the internet, he caught the attention of some of his early inspirations, Terry T and Souljah from legendary Knowledge & Wisdom Recordings. Terry T signed PsychoFreud in 2006 for numerous releases, starting with the tunes “Selassie I” and “Originality” on the Souljah Records imprint (cat SR014). Knowledge & Wisdom would later release a remake of the 1998 hit “Deliver Me”, and the soundclash hit “Run For Cover”. Representing the Knowledge & Wisdom family and their soundsystem Jungle Ambassadors all around Europe – he would include Terry T, Souljah, and Demolition Man as true Vikings Champion Sound members. PsychoFreud works closely with these talented artists both in studio and on stage even today, and have big plans for the future.

PsychoFreud’s tunes, although some featuring sampled vocals, will often include special vocal recordings done by the singers themselves. Known singers which are worth mentioning are for example Bounty Killer, Sizzla, Capleton, Demolition Man, Top Cat, Lady Saw, Ninjaman, Daddy Freddy, Eek-A-Mouse, Barrington Levy and Elephant Man. As the tracks always have reggae and dancehall influence, they can often have new drumandbass style sections, or old school mashup beats. Terry T described it pretty good when explaining PsychoFreud music to another jungle producer: “It’s different stuff”.

PsychoFreud is known for his energetic live shows, and is, in certain countries, the most brought-back DJ of all time. As he will play older hits with great pleasure, he will make sure to play unheard tunes for the crowd every time. Other great producers in the scene provides him with fresh dubs on a daily basis, and party people will be sure to hear big hits straight from the studios of the UK, USA, Canada and Europe.
