Saytek // Live

Awesome Soundwave, Detone, Cubism, Superfreq

UK artist, Saytek (aka Joseph Keevill) has gathered some serious momentum over the last few years, becoming one of the electronic music scene’s most in-demand live acts. With House and techno pioneers such as Carl Cox, Kevin Saunderson, Darren Emerson, Steve Lawler, Danny Rampling, and MR.C not only singing his praises but also hitting him up for tracks & albums to release and booking him to perform live at their events.

Saytek has garnered acclaim the world over with his improvised live shows that see him using a myriad of kit including analogue synths, sequencers and drum machines alongside cutting edge digital technology to perform a unique blend of deep & hypnotic techno, acid and house that is forward thinking yet not forgetting influences from Detroit or the UK’s and Europe’s fiercely inventive 90’s electronic movement.

He is a master of musical technology with a unique energy and ear for melody who knows exactly how to make each piece of studio kit dance to his visionary ideas. Breaking dance music conventions and rewriting the rules along the way, Saytek creates improvised performances that are simultaneously fresh and classic.

Saytek has maintained a relentless tour schedule for over 10 years with peak time live performances at some of the best parties and festivals in The UK, Germany, Canada, Croatia, France, The Czech Republic, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Spain, Netherlands, Finland and beyond.

Highlights include being handpicked by Cox to perform at the Intec Arena of Creamfields, Acid House innovator, Rampling choosing Saytek as the Only live act to perform at his 30 year anniversary celebration of the seminal Shoom Party, playing multiple shows at the legendary Terrace of Space Ibiza (RIP) and fabric London and being fully embraced by Berlin’s underground scene performing regularly in clubs including Tresor, Watergate and Sisyphos’s much loved Hammerhalle. 

His musical output is prolific and including no less than seven esteemed live albums, Live Jam tracks, EPs and 12” singles released on his own Cubism imprint as well labels such as Awesome Soundwave (Carl Cox’s new home for live artists) KMS, Superfreq, Liebe*Detail, Soma, Motech, Bedrock, fabric (London Club), My Favorite Robot Records, Wiggle, Monique Musique, Golden Gate Club Records, My Favourite Freaks and many more.

Saytek’s trademark improvised live recorded tracks are the weapons of choice for the most current, respected and in-demand DJs of the scene including Carl Cox (Saytek has become one of his most played artists), Laurent Garnier, Maceo Plex, Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Steve Lawler, Pan-Pot – among many other leading players.

He was nominated for Best Live Act by DJ Mag for their 2013 Awards; while Mixmag awarded Album Of The Month the same year.

In an industry of smoke & mirrors, ghostwriters and fake DJs, integrity goes a long way and Saytek is what many consider a true electronic musician, sticking strongly to his beliefs and core values.
