Early April will see Republic Artists Records offer up Saytek’s ‘Challenging Behaviour’ EP,
comprising three original tracks from the English producer.

Joseph Keevill aka Saytek has proven himself to be one of the most exciting live acts coming out of
the UK in recent years with appearances at Berlin’s Tresor, Ibiza’s Zoo Project, fabric London and
many more. Saytek can also boast an impressive back catalogue of material on reputable imprints
like Soma, My Favorite Robot, Wiggle and Monique Musique to name but a few, here we see Keevill
push on with more fresh material offered up via London’s Republic Artists Records.

Here we see the EP opened up with ‘Bubbling Under’, a typically raw composition from Saytek fuelled
by jangling organic percussion, heavy distorted kicks, rumbling bass tones and menacing synth
hooks. The latter half sees some floaty pad lines thrown into the mix but for the most part retains an
infectious and dark aesthetic to open things up on a moody tip.

‘Another Acid Track’ follows and as the name would suggest, lays its focus on a moody acid-tinged
vibe with squelching 303 hooks, classic 808 style rhythms, ghostly pads and the occasional acid vocal
murmur thrown in for good measure. Title cut ‘Challenging Behaviour’ then rounds things off with a
penetrating, up-tempo feel, employing a chuggy bass groove and entrancing stab sequences as the
driving force while resonant synth sweeps add a frenzied and mind-bending feel to things.

Saytek’s ‘Challenging Behaviour’ EP is out on Republic Artists Records 9th April 2015.
