Biography

Psylab is a 4-person live act that bridges the gap between man and machine. Psylab proves the human ability to create a style of music typically associated with DJs.

The visual element makes Psylab into a full psychedelic multimedia experience - especially when audio samples from the warped visual feed creep fluidly into the live mix.

Psylab's musical influences stretch in many realms-- from marley to west african percussion; 60s euro porn soundtracks to deep minimalist tech-house... however the members would be more likely to cite non-musical entities such as yoga and meditation, as more influential to the band.
