ISF Radio Podcast #030 w/ DJ Psycho-UK (Southeast Asia Special: Vietnam)

Two months have passed since I am back from Asia – two very intense months: I finished my upcoming EP ‘Valley of Darkness’, put out a lot of podcasts of this Southeast-Asia special series, the Fehler Musik podcast is back online and now finally, finally can start with moving into video production and work fully on the electronic underground documentation about Southeast-Asia.

It will be hell of a job because of 500 GB of video raw footage, but it will also be hell of fun because all these beautiful memories will come back and I will get reminded why I am so grateful for this tour and trip.

Because of this humongous amount of data, I will divide the documentation into three parts: part one is Vietnam, part two Thailand and in part three I will put Malaysia, Singapore, and Cambodia together. So watch this space or follow us on YouTube ( and the blog to get the updates and see the progress.

In our podcast today we present Tariq aka DJ Psycho-UK. I met him during a non-stopping weekend in the heat of Saigon’s party nights, and this guy has quite a history. We did the interview together Marco Mei (see podcast #025) on the rooftop of the Arcan club (, where I played my very first show in Ho Chi Minh City, and also the second a week later with Marco. Let’s listen to what Tariq has to say …

@DJ Psycho-UK
Hi, this is DJ Psycho, hello everyone and thanks to itsoundsfuture, Berlin for the Podcast.
This show is being recorded from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where I currently reside and run an Event management company and Radio Station called Scientific Sound Asia. I am originally from London in the UK, and that’s where my musical influences started with the birth of Hip Hop, House, Hardcore and the Drum and Bass scene.
Today’s show is going to be around up of the Deep/Tech House sounds that I have been spinning at events here in Saigon over the last couple of years, and have influenced me the most, hope you enjoy the show!
