Photek is Rupert Parkes (born 1972, St. Albans, England), a Los Angeles based record producer and dj. He joined the drum and bass scene relatively early (his first release was in 1992, a collaboration with Rob Solomon a.k.a. Lexis), and is still one of its most respected players. In the mid-to-late Nineties he was a very active remixer and has also done some soundtrack work, most notably for The Animatrix. His newest album in 6 years: "Form & Function Vol. 2" is set to be released in 2006.
