Neotek is a Danish electronic band from Copenhagen, combining various genre influences like rock, hip-hop, wave and punk in an all-electronic environment.

History[edit]

Neotek dates back to the mid eighties under several other band names. Neotek has been the name since 1993. At this point the band consisted of Henrik Jensen, Jacob Neis and Jens Bang Petersen.

In 1995 Neotek released their debut CD, Brain Over Muscle – and shortly after that went on break for 5 years.

in 2001 Neotek reformed with 8 members with the idea to be a more open project, continuing with the sonic experiments. Several years was used on experiments and trying different processes in the studio and some live shows – and slowly the group grew smaller. Several member left due to either artistic differences or due to the experimental work method.

Since late 2006 the 3 original members make up Neotek with occasional guests – and the band has now exactly the same line-up as in 1993. The second album "Sex, Murder & Rock'n'Roll" was released on 27 November 2009.

In 2010 Neotek has been joined by a fourth regular member Michael Hillerup, and are joined on stage by performers Pixie Milton, Electra Edelweiss and other guests. A video with the all new Neotek and the track "Alive" can be seen on Youtube.com

Neotek has since the restart played venues like ColumbiaClub Berlin, Werk II WGT Leipzig, Rust & Stengade 30 Copenhagen, Train & Voxhall Århus...

Neotek is signed to Black Rain Media Group where the new album "Sex, Murder & Rock'n'Roll" was released.
