Guest Tutor: Saytek. Learn with a Live Techno legend!
We're thrilled to announce that LSA students now have the chance to learn one-to-one with techno music legend, Saytek. Joseph, aka Saytek, is one of the world's most cherished techno acts and is famous for his live techno performances. In terms of artistry, there is on one that compares to Saytek.
Saytek's Official Biography
Celebrating 20 years of innovative sounds in 2023 is UK live act - SAYTEK. The prolific force in the realms of house and techno continues to deliver stellar sounds year after year, and in the blink of an eye, 20 years have passed since his first-ever live set. An exciting and colourful path has seen SAYTEK travel the world with his hardware, showcasing his sound in all corners of the globe from Montreal to Mumbai, the legendary terrace of Space Ibiza, London’s Fabric, Berlin’s famous Tresor, Awakenings, and Mysteryland in Holland, to more obscure shows such as illegal warehouse parties in Helsinki. While heavily touring, he has also found the time to release 9 albums and over 500 tracks (most recorded live) on heavyweight labels such as Soma, Fabric, TRAX, R&S, Bedrock, KMS, Superfreq, and most recently Carl Cox and Christopher Coe’s Awesome Soundwave. He was described by Cox himself as a "genius" at playing live. Another sign of this would be his anticipated live stream jams, which have racked up tens of millions of views over the years.
This success certainly did not happen overnight, tirelessly developing and evolving his sound, starting out with frequent appearances at illegal parties in London, with the first legitimate gig landing at The End’s sister club AKA on a Tuesday night, a far cry from the multi-thousand capacity stages you might find synonymous with SAYTEK in recent times. Throughout the years, his raw talent has earned him some serious love from the press, including Mixmag and DJ Mag's album of the month, nominated as the best live act in DJ Mag, voted in Germany's FAZE Mag in the top 10 live acts, and much more.
