After the success of his ‘DR. Motte Birthday Party Live Jams E.P’ (recorded at the Love Parade founder’s Birthday party) last year, which was supported by the likes of Carl Cox, Maceo Plex, Karotte, Joseph Capriati, Kolsch and more, live artist Saytek reveals his first release for 2020 by way of a brand new EP series inspired by the release titled, ‘Live On Tour’. Featuring a selection of fresh jams recorded live at Awakenings (ADE), The Hammahalle of Sisyphos (Berlin) and the Basement Of Chapue Rogue (Prague), ‘Live On Tour Volume 1’ captures the intoxicating raw energy of Saytek’s performances with five new vibrant improvisations that organically flow with Techno, House and Breakbeat vibes.

His busy tour schedule has seen him deliver peak time live performances at some of the best parties and festivals around the world. Highlights include Carl Cox’s Intec Arena at Creamfields and Carl Cox’s forthcoming Megatructure at Resistance, Miami (sadly just postponed due to Coronavirus); Danny Rampling’s 30 year anniversary of his Shoom party; Awakenings ADE; the legendary Terrace of Space Ibiza (RIP); Printworks; Mysteryland; and fabric London.
