My musical journey started as rebellion. Growing up in middle class suburbia in Hampshire, the most extreme creativity I was exposed to was probably Axel F, but more regularly consisted of The Shadows and pop groups.
I led a sheltered life musically, feeling it was none of my business. Then the UK rave scene happened.
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 ’99 and began spinning drum n bass, taking up the moniker SkekTek.
Having played at clubs and house parties throughout the DC area, SkekTek moved to Nashville at the end of 2005. Since then, his style has expanded to include dubstep, drumstep, electro, glitch hop, and moombah. If it has a nasty bassline and makes you shake your ass, chances are SkekTek plays it.
