One of the Techno Godfathers Kirk Degiorgio, brings you Sambatek. With classic samba drum breaks and organic percussive elements, this album is the essence of ‘ritmos do Brasil’. Sambatek is accompanied by remixes from a worldwide cast of established and up & coming producers appearing on the Far Out imprint for the first time.
Available now on the Far Out Greedbag Store Kirk reflects a Detroit sound incorporated with funk, jazz and soul influences which has resulted in a series of projects working under such aliases: As One (which made the Muzik top 30 in 1994/95), Offworld (Full LP on Far Out), Esoterik, Elegy and Super-A-Loof. Remixing artists as varied as Azymuth, Coldcut, 4 Hero, Innerzone Orchestra, Papo Vasquez and many more proving his musical spectrum has no boundaries.
With a career spanning over two decades Kirk has come far from his upbringing in East London. Creator of the label ART (Applied Rhythmic Technology) in the 80’s, Kirk released the early works and productions from B12, Carl Craig, Aphex Twin, The Black Dog, Photek, Stasis amongst others. Kirk’s own productions and remixes throughout these past two decades have been also released by such labels as Mo Wax, Planet E, Ubiquity, Versatile, Peacefrog and many more.
