Reworking a big tune is never a simple task, especially if after 7 years the tune in question is still one of the highlights in live shows of one of the worlds most beloved live act performers - KiNK. That’s only half of the story though, as the tune got a lot of love from so many DJ’s all over the globe and made an impact on so many dancefloors.
Having said that, for the 17th Burek record, we wanted to do something really special and what could be better than giving new life to a piece of music which literally gave life to our label. And we gathered some very interesting people for the job.
A1 KiNK - “Leko” (Bass Shake Version) is a rework from none other than KiNK himself. The original is a party monster as it is, so Strahil opted for an alternative approach that sheds an interesting light on a familiar song. Huge resonating bassline and a bit of a leftfield feel occupy the bigger part of the track until settling into the familiar mood, but in a very different context. Perfect balance between 5 am heady vibe and the beauty injection with the sample from the original
A2 Rachel Row feat KiNK - “Away” is a vocal take on the A1 version and features beautiful vocals from this talented Bulgarian vocalist, who’s been collaborating with KiNK on many occasions, from studio work to live shows.
B1 KiNK - “Leko” (Session Victim Remix) is a wonderfully subdued take on the original. It keeps all the elements we know and love, and puts a spin on them with a more percussive feel, well placed guitar licks and an overall easier mood. All that said, don’t make a mistake with thinking this is something for the living room...as this one’s made for those special daytime/sunset/sunrise moments when a tune like this turns the situation into something everyone will take home with them.
B2 KiNK - “Leko” (Original Version) is THE tune, in all it’s glory and attitude. Full-fledged peak time house track which turns every party into a steaming pit of bodies asking for more.
As with our previous records, we’re pressing it on a high quality audiophile 180g vinyl. The only difference is, this one’s getting a bit of a special treatment and will be released in yellow colour. Delicious.
