Ktek got
his start in music the moment his mother bought him a Sony tape player. He took
advantage of the recording capabilities of the gift, and his love of music, to
entertain his friends by creating custom made mix tapes he sold to friends. His
tapes were so well-received he was invited to DJ at local parties.

He soon
found himself spending time in the studio with his mentor, Fu, who gave him the
nickname of Tek. The moniker was earned when he took a broken computer sitting
in the corner of the studio and brought it back to life. From then on music,
computers, and software became his passion.

artist  such as The Art of Noice, Micheal
Jackson, Sting, Phill Collins, Seal, Timberland, Dr. Drea, J-Dilla, Bass 305,
Teckmaster P.E.B, DJ. Magic Mike, and Eric B and Ra’Kim have been key sources
of his inspiration. His love of combining non-traditional sounds and recording
methods mixed with the elements of human sound, orchestral, and electronic pads
and keys have become the components of his one-of-a-kind sound.

Ktek has
over twenty-one years of experience as a musician, producer, and audio
engineer. He’s played acoustic and electrical drums for twelve years. His true
passion begun in 1999 when he began integrating digital production and
engineering into his resume. Soon after he became a founding member of Block2Block
Records where he honed his production and engineering skills.

passion for music drove him to build an in-house studio. For six years he
recorded independent artists in his living room. In 2015, Ktek moved from the
living room to a studio where The Grind Factory was born. Since then, hundreds
of artists have come through the doors in search of his unique sound and
production. Many of his tracks have been used by true independent artists and
requested by music directors for commercial catalogs, audio books, and other
producers and engineers.  

Over the
years his skills have gone beyond engineering and into the booth where he has collaborated
with some of the best artist to have searched out his production skills. Ktek
has a writing and delivery style that is much like the tracks he’s made;
unique, captivating, and guaranteed to make listeners talk. His first single, Fuck Trump, which says what many people
are thinking, is predicted to become an instant hit.
