In 1991, Smilehouse lead singer Paul Sebastian met Vox Day at The Underground in Minneapolis and the two men put together a band, with Day on keyboards and Sebastian on guitar and vocals. They recorded two songs together before finding a drummer, Michael Larson, and a deejay/production engineer, Daniel Lenz, and forming the complete band. The band Psykosonik recorded a three-song demo tape at Sebastian's apartment where he had a recording studio, and later performed in local clubs, including First Avenue, 7th Street Entry, and Glam Slam. Their first recorded song was the unreleased "Sex Me Up", which led to the band being signed to Wax Trax! and TVT Records.Their first album, Psykosonik, was released in 1993. Their second album, Unlearn, was released in 1995.
The band's third album, Spiritual Machine, was completed by 1997 but was never released by the band's label, Wax Trax! Records, who were by this time owned by TVT Records. The experience led to the subsequent disbanding of Psykosonik.
Daniel Lenz went on to produce a single album with vocalist Brent Daniels under the band name Hednoize. In 2001 Lenz launched a short lived project called PsykoHed on MP3.com. He released his debut solo album, Stuck in a Dream, in 2008, featuring guest appearances by Brent Daniels, as well as Paul Sebastien. He has since recorded many soundtracks for various television shows and movies, including the music for the Disney Cars 2 movie.
In 2004, Paul Sebastien teamed up with Caesar Filori to release two singles under the name Basic Pleasure Model, titled Sunyata and How to Live. Sunyata was a Psykosonik song that had been written and previously recorded by Sebastien and Day for the Unlearn CD, but was not included on it.
