About the course

As one of the UK's most exciting acts, Saytek has carved out a unique position for himself over the
last few years. He has built a reputation for innovative, improvised hardware heavy live sets that
span the house and techno spectrum.

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, Dr. Motte, 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 analog 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 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.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.

In his first course for FaderPro, Saytek shows you every aspect of his unique production workflow that mirrors his live sets and sparks creativity unlike anyone else.  He is not only a very seasoned and sought after artists, but is also as master teacher which helps this course translate very well to anyone looking to incorporate more of a hybrid workflow using Ableton Live.
