Motech Records are proud to announce that one of the UK’s most exciting acts, Saytek makes his debut for the label with ‘Compulsive Behavior EP’ in November.
Saytek (Joseph Keevill) has already built a reputation for innovative, improvised hardware heavy live sets that span the house and techno spectrum and is widely regarded as one of the nation’s best live performers. Mainly influenced by Detroit and Chicago, being London-based there’s also a distinctly British flavour that permeates throughout his music. On top of his regular flow of singles and EPs, Saytek’s series of live albums, initially released via Zoo’s own label and his own Cubism imprint have further bolstered his reputation for innovative projects with his most recent of these, ‘Machine Jams’ dropping in August.
For his inaugural Motech release, Saytek delivers a snapshot of what makes him so admired as an artist. Over the EP’s 4 tracks he utilises vibrant grooves, intense beats and selective vocal samples.
From ‘Unfold’ which opens the showcase with some deeper than deep techno tones to the appealing shuffle of ‘Transferring’ and ‘Back To The Roots’ which keep the grooves alive with a Chicago flavour before the sweeping and melodic ‘Compulsive Behavior’, it’s clear that Saytek has found a like-minded home from home on this Detroit label.
