2013 release. From legendary techno don, veteran producer and long-time Far Out Recordings contributor Kirk Degiorgio, comes Sambatek. Sourced from classic samba drum breaks and organic percussive elements, this album transposes the essence of “ritmos do Brasil” into the late night peak time techno soundscape Kirk has enriched for over 20 years. A collection of pulsating, evolving and unrelenting techno stormers, Sambatek is accompanied by remixes from a worldwide cast of established and up & coming producers appearing on the Far Out Recordings imprint for the first time. As ever Kirk Degiorgio brings his “A game” to this release. From the dark, ethereal, Berlin-esque sonics of the album opener, to the house-y Detroit- infused stabs of “Borel” and the booming warehouse rave ethic of “Complexo Do Alemão”, this album showcases Kirk’s passion for these two traditionally disparate musical genres coalescing into the symbiotic rhythmic experience of Sambatek. This project is accompanied by remixes from Rick Wilhite, Jonas Kopp and NX1.
