(the lab) is a collaboration between DJ-SiFi and Giuseppe G.
The pair met in 2002 shortly after Giuseppe arrived from Rome, and found they had a mutual interest in edgy, forward thinking house and techno.
Fast forward ten years, following the frustration of Singapore’s small and limited house and techno scene, the pair were offered a weekly Thursday residency at the now defunct Hyde bar. With a view to establish an Asian electronic canvas to experiment deep house and tech styles, (the lab) was born.
Coupling Giuseppe G’s Italian flair and no nonsense edginess, with DJ-SiFi’s old skool British roots for electronica spanning the last thirty years, the duo’s complimentary tastes seamlessly dovetail together and form the foundation for their highly acclaimed and love for marathon seven hour sets (Kilo / SG F1).
(the lab) has played with James What (Crosstown rebels / Poker Flat), Danny Rampling, Sassy (Watergate), Seb Fontaine, and Jadele (exploited records).
As residents for Kilo’s new Tanjong Pagar home, the pair has played the majority of the local electronic music scene institutions – Kilo, Cato, Kyo, Canvas, The Vault, Zouk, Kinki, Mansion, Mariko’s, Avalon, Lucky 13 and Singapore F1, (the lab) has been and done it.
2017 looks exciting – to be confirmed gigs in Hong Kong & Thailand, as well as Giuseppe G branching out to experiment music production – 2017 is going to raise the bar more than a few notches, but also further afield.
