Profile:
Producer, DJ and Phrunky Recordings label boss Ty Tek keeps the dance floor moving. Historic residencies in Colorado and traveling abroad have helped Ty continue the music mission and DJing along the side of electronic music legend’s has kept Tek’s sense of underground. Part of the legendary Casa Del Soul crew and Phrunky Recordings, Ty Tek’s dj sets regularly take the crowd on a journey through sonic soundscapes, dark and moody tribal house to funky techno and peak time progressive madness.

In the early 90’s and at a young age, Ty immersed his self into electronic music. Starting to play at his first club residency “Evolution Night Club” in Pueblo, CO and then moving to Denver, Colorado, Tek found nightlife as his second home. Ty met DJ Keoki’s brother Koa and teamed up to start a historic residency at Tracks 2000 Nightclub. This propelled Tek’s DJ career into what it is today. Ty has found long term residencies in Colorado’s nightlife. Places such as Vinyl Night Club, The Church, Club Synergy, Tracks 2000 and Beta Nightclub to after-hours spots like 2AM and Enigma After-hours, all hold many stories of Ty Tek’s music.

Ty got his start with record label Casa Del Soul [founded by DJ Sense'] which was and still is a collective of friends, producers, record label and [then] record shop leading the way in Colorado’s dance scene and abroad. Sense', Darrell Foxx, Ty Tek, Little Mike, Wyatt Earp and DJ Catt are Casa Del Soul. Tek has received critical acclaim from DJ’s and producers all over the world with releases such as “Ty Tek & Little Mike-Casafied Modern Music 2" featured on Lee Burridge's Global Underground Nu-breed mix compilation to Lexicon Avenue, Doc Martin (Fabric 10) and Clive Henry of Peace Division’s Ibiza DC10 Circo Loco Mix Compilation. Ty was on Muzik magazine's list of top tech-house producers and Casa Del Soul was featured as recommended label of 2002. Many write up’s over the years can be found in magazines such as MixMag, MusicTech, URB, BPM Magazine and many more.
Alongside label partner Little Mike (Beatport/Berlin), Ty runs record label Phrunky Recordings. Being both Mike and Ty have decades of experience managing record shops and djing, they decided it was time to pro-create [ in a music sense ] and Phrunky Recordings was founded in 2002. Phrunky Recordings found imediate success with tunes such as "The Party Ride" picked up by label boss Erick Morillo [Subliminal Winter Sessions V.2]. “Party Ride” was remixed by the likes of Mazi [Gourmet] and David Duriez [Brique Rouge]. Many others big tunes with vocalist Cat Conger have had huge success thanks to Dirty Blue Records and Piliavin & Zimbardo.

Ty’s intuitive sense on the dance floor and always learning by playing along side of the greats such as Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Adam Beyer, Frankie Bones, Derrick May, Fat Boy Slim, Pete Tong, Oakey, Josh Wink, BT, Sasha and John Digweed to Richie Hawtin, Hardfloor and Deep Dish all keep Ty Tek humble and always evolving. With set’s that go deep and dark to peak time energy only experienced in person, Ty Tek looks to the future with one foot firmly placed on the dance floor.
