Latvia born, Dublin based DJ and producer Erik Burka has reconstructed Brazilian anthem Baianá by Barbatuques into a thrilling tribal techno track, combining key vocal, percussive and bass elements that result in an incredibly funky take on a well-known classic. What a treat.
Disintegrated label boss Erik Burka has once again showcased his expansive musical taste with a groove infused edit of Baianá by Barbatuques. Some may be familiar with Erik’s past productions that would be initially hardcore in nature, while his recent releases tend to come filled with funk, groove and tribal tendencies.
Burka’s versatility spans right across schranz, hardcore, industrial, old-school, tribal and beyond. With sets at the Research day parties in Grand Social and a b2b with X23 in the Cellar for a SPEED x Hidden Love takeover showcasing these wide range of sounds and differing styles.
More recently, Erik has delved further into his funkier side with an impressive appearance on the Grounded mix series with an hour filled with an abundance of energy from start to finish.
His newest production is similar in nature, oozing heaps of tribal funk with an array of bongos and cleverly chopped vocals that come to the fore. This will undoubtedly set many dance floors alight in the very near future.
Burka is also set to play at this years edition of Fuinneamh Festival in what will be his first festival appearance and is one that we are eagerly anticipating. Tickets for this years Fuinneamh can be found here.
