Bio

Releasing their debut EP in June 2013, Urtekk has found itself on the industry’s radar – with the track ‘Intervals’ receiving praise and air time on Triple J as well as several local stations around the country; along with the same track being licensed to the Pilot Records for SA Tourism short film 'Taking Off,' the short-doco 'The Agony Of Ecstasy' airing on ABC2; and earning a nomination in South Australia’s ‘Fowlers Live Music Awards’ for best electronic artist.

Urtekk’s 3-part DM3 Project is the follow-up to 2013's EP, again finding it's way onto the airwaves and this time accompanied by appearances at Wide Open Spaces Festival, Adelaide and Melbourne launches and a recent announcement on Rainbow Serpent Festival 2015.

“Hells yeah this GROOVES” [Dom Alessio, Triple J]

“...like kraut meets prog meets Trans Am's Futureworld. I've got your EP and I think I'll be listening to it... a lot.” [Gemma Pike, Triple J]

“...Urtekk throw down a barrage of live electronic freakery – pitting the clash of the mechanical against rolling bass grooves and Kraut-y lead riffs. Determinedly individualist but done expertly that the approach can’t be argued with.” [Dave Ruby Howe, inthemix]
