For five wholesome months this summer, Mixmag, and BUDX hosted what was easily the best party Johannesburg has seen in a while. The Lab sessions, which took place every Wednesday, were aimed at showcasing the freshest local and international talent.
Last week, Mixmag and BUDX hosted their last Lab event at Shine Studios – a stunning building with breathtaking views of the entire city located in Braamfontein – providing a worthy backdrop for some of the world’s most exciting talents of house and techno.
“I co-host the Lab Johannesburg with Sisi, and it is a collaboration between MixMag and BudX. In a nutshell, I am Mr. Party, the host with the most, Mr. Good vibrations, Bhuthi nice, nice. I introduce and welcome the slew of artists that grace our platform. I think my reputation kinda landed me the job, I’ve worked with a lot of artists so I am sorta the thread that links everyone.” says poet and DJ Lazarusman.
The newest Lab experience welcomed some of the most beloved DJs on the planet to headline the events. Seth Troxler, Jeremy Olander, Cassy, and Jonas Rathsman were just some of the artists that graced the decks and streamed via Facebook and Youtube.
Other guest hosts included Culoe Du Song, Lemon & Herb, Black Motion and Shimza who all share the same vision to highlight the best of the city.
