About Sviteknology

Chicagoan Louis Svitek has played in Chicago’s most popular rock bands Zeotrope, Lost
Cause, and Mayhem Inc. (While opening for Anthrax, Mayhem Inc. almost burned the stage
down at Chicago club The Cabaret Metro and the band was subsequently banned from playing in
the Chicago-land area forever).

A short time later, Svitek was asked to join Chicago thrashers Zeotrope and hit the road
where he met front-man Billy Milano who asked Svitek to join the confrontational band M.O.D.
He made his way to the East coast recording two albums with the band. He and bass player John
Monte went on to form the band Mindfunk. Mindfunk’s first album was one of the top three
guitar albums recorded in 1991 (Guitar World Magazine), and went on to record Dropped and
People who Fell from the Sky.

While still with Mindfunk, Svitek was sought out by Al Jourgensen, founder and front-man
of the influential band Ministry and went on to record and tour with them. While playing with
Ministry he was asked to appear with Pigface, Sister Machine Gun, and movie soundtracks such
as The Matrix. While on tour with Ministry, Svitek met The Redd and they landed two songs in
the movie Blue Hill Ave (featuring Allen Payne) that has since become an Urban Underground
Cult Classic.
Looking for a new creative outlet that would allow him to work across several genres of
music, guitarist/composer Louis Svitek, started producing music and founded Chicago-based
WuLi Records.
In 2006, Svitek partnered with drummer/composer/producer Ryan McGuire (ORyan
Productions). Their combined talents produce music that maintains imaginative freedom for the
artist and potent market appeal.
Their partnership with Fontana Distribution/Universal Music Group brings the full
power of their distribution channels, media access and social networking to bear on WuLi’s
endeavors. Today, WuLi records is inundated with requests from artists (both unknown and
popular) to produce and collaborate their music. They are carefully (and enthusiastically)
reviewing the artists and have begun signing new acts to the label.
