Sick Cycle began as two separate producers, Michael West and Levon Maeder, each on their own path in music. They both attended the same school and the same audio engineering course. Michael first released "Meditation" under the name Sick Cycle in 2006, playing live on his MicroKorg Synth & Acoustic Guitar and producing the drums on PC. Michael and Levon finally collaborated together in 2007, and havent looked back since.

Sick Cycle's dubstep assault began in 2008, with little knowledge. To their amazement, Rottun Recordings, run by Canadian producer "Excision", signed the tunes that came forth. "Concept" is out this year as a 12" Vinyl on Rottun Recordings, as well as "Hive Mind" and "Tweak Frenzy" as MP3 downloads via For more information please visit

Sick Cycle also run "Corrosive Noise" dark music events in New Zealand. The events feature New Zealand musicians & producers who focus primarily on darker destructive music. Christchurch events are held at Double Happy in the central city, and in the past have featured artists like Nanotek, Organikismness, Kilotone, Habit, The Facecutters, & Urban Terror Unit. Keep an eye out for these events as they only happen two or three times a year.

Urban Terror Unit is Logan Ralston "Loki" and Pedro Dupacus "0dc". These boys have been ripping up dances floors NZ Wide. They have spread throughout Otago, running numerous nights of mayhem.

As one of the main acts at Phat 09's pre party, these boys destroyed the second stage and really set the bar for the festival.
