Exclusive Interview with Sci Lab: Go out there and be yourself

Sci Lab, or rather Craig Marsh, discovered psytrance at the age of eighteen. During 2007, he studied sound engineering at Cape Audio College which better equipped him to start producing his own music. A jack-of-all-trades, Sci Lab is involved in many business ventures and projects. In 2010, he co-founded popular psytrance organisation Mungus Fungus and later, Spectrum and Reboot. His musical style can be described as hard, dark, progressive – and always surprising. Sci Lab’s high-energy performances showcase his keen knowledge of musical software and technology as well as his ability to fine-tune his sounds to suit any dance-floor. Catch Sci Lab at Vortex Parallel Universe for the first time ever on the 26th of March 2016.

PSYKED:
Hi Craig! You’re not only a DJ and producer but a successful event organiser; has putting together your own line-ups and booking artists enabled you to make better music? Surely, you must know what gets the crowds going.

SCI LAB:
Hi Batia; thank you for this opportunity to chat about the psytrance community. Organising events has given me the understanding of how an event should flow and has definitely helped me out in my track selection as a DJ. As a producer, I am still trying to find my feet – Djing and production are two different ball games! Production requires a whole new level of discipline.
