Biography

After falling in love with EDM in the Washington DC rave scene of the mid-late 90’s, Ryan Walker bought his first set of turntables in 1999 and began spinning drum n bass. As a reflection of his dark, techy style at the time, he took up the moniker SkekTek, referring to the scientist of the evil Skeksis in Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal. Over the years, his style broadened to include all kinds of drum n bass: vocal, liquid funk, neurofunk, dancefloor, techstep, and more. He has developed a quick, energetic mixing style and has a tendency to flow from one subgenre to another within his sets.

After playing at several clubs and house parties in the DC and VA area, SkekTek moved to Nashville at the end of 2005 and has continued performing at house parties and club events in the area. Over the past year, he has found a new love in the gritty, warped basslines of the new dubstep sound, and a SkekTek set today is likely to include both dubstep and dnb elements.

In March, SkekTek won the 2010 Mai DJ Competition, and traveled to Miami to perform at the Bassdrive Label Launch party at the Winter Music Conference, along with Bailey and A-Sides. He was also featured on Squake’s Represent Radio show on Bassdrive.com.
