Sutekh hated dance music until 1992, when the Violent Unknown Event (VUE) struck his UC Berkeley dormitory, provoking a peculiar fascination with electronic sound. This side effect led him to use his college loan money to purchase a pair of turntables and an analog synthesizer. In 1995, after 3 years of secluded research, Sutekh (aka Seth Horvitz) moved to the industrial sector of Oakland, where he teamed up with Belief Systems label founder Darin Marshall to release his first track on the "Swivel" compilation. Since then, Sutekh's discography has grown to include releases on labels such as Drop Beat (Oakland), Cytrax and Delay (San Francisco), Tektite (Austin), Mille Plateaux, and Force Inc. (Frankfurt). He also continues to co-operate and produce music for Belief Systems and its new sibling label, Context. In January of 1997, Sutekh became a resident DJ for Static, a weekly club in San Francisco, which after 3 years has gained an international reputation as one of the most innovative and forward thinking electronic music weeklies in the country. Sutekh has appeared as a DJ and live performer in cities around the world alongside artists as diverse as Pole, Kenny Larkin, Neil Landstrumm, Mu-Ziq and Luke Vibert. In 1997, he was selected as the official DJ for the large-scale robotic sporting event Robot Wars. Having conducted weekly radio shows for over 6 years at KALX in Berkeley, Sutekh has maintained an interest in many different musical forms, both electronic and not, including dub, hip-hop, post-rock, jazz, and 20thcentury avant-garde. The unifying theme of experimentation is present in all of the music he creates, listens to, and DJs. >more about sutekh
