"it all makes for another interesting EP from fullbarr, which we're following more avidly with each release"- MIXMAG, feb 2012
Having just received a cracking remix from this lad on the forthcoming Russo EP, Fullbarr thought it best to let you have a look into his antics...Saytek
aka Joseph Keevill is a self confessed "Geek with a Passion" who was jamming with synths, drum machines and a Tandy mixer from the tender age of 8. Whilst other kids were collecting Star Wars toys, Saytek was dragging his mum around car boot sales looking for obsolete synths or creating sound warping algorithms on his commodore 64.
Saytek has been a major player in the scene for almost 10 but has just risen to underground hero status in recent years, releasing successful deep tech house and techno records since 2001 all of which have been met with critical acclaim, as well as being championed by the world’s most respected DJs. Fast forward 2010, Saytek is a live artist, an innovator and pioneer who brings real meaning to the term "Live" in electronic music arena.
Using Classic roland hardware, cutting edge 21st century computer technology and a myriad of noise mangling gadgets, Saytek creates & improvises on the fly. Not only is all the music his own but it is truly performed live in response to the crowd. His shows are so awe inspiring that he has been sited by both press and underground music fans as one of the best live acts to emerge in recent times. His reputation as a performer alone has earned him the place as headliner at some of Europe’s most highly regarded parties, an accolade shared only by the cream of underground house and techno talent.
His technical flare is coupled with fierce music integrity which has remained in tact since he was introduced and fell in love with Detroit techno and acid house at the age of 13. Saytek's style is deep, rolling, thoughtful and designed to rock the peak time dance floor. He combines the new house and techno phenomenon with elements of dub, soulful Detroit , chi-town beats, tribal percussive grooves, retro acid , Free jazz and Latin flavours to provide a unique and refreshing journey.
After incredible launch parties at both T Bar in London and Sankey’s in Manchester, Saytek’s 2nd album “Live from the Other Side” is now available on Channel Zoo records. Recorded live at The Zoo Project last Summer 2009 in front of thousands of Ibiza’s finest party people. Live from the Other Side caught a moment of musical history. The album is a follow up to his hugely successful "live From The seal Pit" recorded in 2008 an album that was one of the most popular CDs for sale in Ibiza in 2009. The new album is flying out to all corners of the world before the 2010 season has even begun.
