With cool collaborations in the pipeline with Asher Jones & Rick Nicholls and with label partner Tony Thomas as The Sultans of Sick expect to hear more great music from Mark and Cubism as we sweat our way through the summer months!
There is simply no other house & techno live act quite like Saytek. His obsessive love of hardware see’s him rocking up at clubs with groove boxes, synths, Ableton, Kaos pads and various other noise mangling gadgets and weaving together a seamless mix of floor shaking electronics. He arranges, re-samples, tweaks filters, layers effects, triggers samples, mutes parts and mixes everything together on the fly.
The buzz round Saytek’s shows has resulted in headline slots everywhere from Zoo Project Ibiza Circo Loco at Sankey’s, The Egg and The End & AKA through to the sweltering Circus Festival in Spain and the uber cool patent blua in Berlin taking in Europe’s coolest underground clubs along the way.
His many critically acclaimed releases and his album “Live From The Seal Pit” (recorded live at Zoo Project event,summer 2008) have been supported by the likes of: Laurent Garnier, Cluade Von Stroke, Carl Cox, Peace division, Tim Sheridan, John Digweed, David Duriez, Kevin Saunderson, Justin Drake, Colin Dale, 10 Sui, Smithmonger, Meat Katie, Phil Kieran, Terry Francis, and Ricky Stone to mention a few.
A live act not to be missed!!!
