Live Techno whizz, Saytek, continues to soar through 2017 (and clearly taking no prisoners!) as he returns to Darren Emerson‘s Detone label with a giant new helping of 7 stellar live jams. Saytek Live Jams Vol. 2 scales new innovative heights, gloriously coloured with the slamming, oscillating, menacing, pulsating, deep and beautifully melodic pallets of the Techno and House spectrum, all crafted with the sheer brilliance that we’ve come to expect from this mighty trailblazer!
“I am super happy to be back on Darren Emerson’s Detone with 7 live jams that have been really working the dance floors recently. These tracks are performed live using a mixture of Analog synths & drum machines, samplers, Outboard FX and controllers.. Everything is arranged live with loads of improvised parts.” – Saytek
UK artist Saytek (aka Joseph Keevill) has gathered some serious momentum over the last few years and has become one of the electronic music scene’s most in-demand live acts. From multiple shows in Ibiza at The Terrace of Space (RIP) & The Zoo Project and regular shows at fabric London to being fully embraced by Berlin’s underground scene performing regularly at clubs including Tresor, Golden Gate, Salon – Zur wilder Renate, Chalet, Sisyphos, Kosmonaut, Ipse and more. Saytek has a relentless tour schedule with gigs at some of the best parties and festivals all over the UK, Europe and Canada.
“He’s a great talent with a great ear for the dance floor” – Darren Emerson
Saytek has garnered acclaim the world over with his improvised live shows that see him using a myriad of kit to perform a unique blend of deep techno & tough house grooves with dubby acidic hues. He is master of musical technology with a unique energy and ear for melody and knows exactly how to make each piece of studio kit dance to his visionary ideas.
Saytek‘s music output is prolific and includes Live Jams, EPs and live albums on his own Cubism label, along with 12” and digital releases on labels such as KMS, Superfreq, Liebe*Detail, Soma, Bedrock, fabric (London Club), My Favorite Robot Records, Wiggle, My Favourite Freaks and many more.
In the past year alone Saytek’s work has been supported by B Traits on BBC Radio 1 – ‘Incredible live show’; his tracks have been on heavy rotation across the festival and club circuits from both Carl Cox and Maceo Plex, with Carl hailing Saytek as “One of the UK’s freshest and most exciting acts”. In addition, Techno legends Derrick May & Kevin Saunderson supported his live jams at Awakenings, along with other heavyweights John Digweed, Laurent Garnier, Sasha, Nicole Moudaber, with many other leading players supporting his work.
Saytek was nominated for Best Live Act by DJ Mag for their 2013 Awards; while Mixmag awarded ‘Album Of The Month’ the same year. His releases frequently hit the Traxsource & Beatport Techno & Minimal/Deep Tech top 10 charts. 2017 continues to be a great year for Saytek with the signing of two EP’s to Mr C’s Superfreq label who is a massive fan – “Saytek is wicked, we love his music”.
