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. They have also found a steady home for their dubstep output on J:Kenzo’s Artikal Music, where they released EP’s ‘’Mahdi’’ & ‘’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. Mystic State’s music has received support from titans such as Noisia, Truth, Calibre, Om Unit, Koan Sound & many more.
2023 for the duo brings a brand new solo album forthcoming later on in the year which they know has elevated their sound in monumental ways. Making multiple styles of music is key to the duo, using authenticity as their anchor as they move forward into exciting and unknown territory.
