Burek Records presents…
Croatia’s hottest music imprint ‘Burek’ makes its debut in London at Dance Tunnel on Friday 27th September. Their mission is to support emerging artists and to promote the sound they are passionate about. Mario Kolonić otherwise known as Pytzek launched the record label in 2011, Mislav joined the Burek stable later and now co-runs the label and DJ agency. Together Pytzek and Mislav from Zagreb with the help of Joe Bonez in London, are building an alliance with the underground movement, gaining recognition from the critics with artists such as Serge Clone, Fudge Fingas, Toby Tobias to name a few. Key support from movers and shakers include the likes of Ben Watt, Azari & III, MCDE, Michael Mayer, Soul Clap, Justin Marin, Erol Alkan, Todd Terje, Brodinski, Jimpster, Fred P and Midland to name some of the elite, making this Croatian label a force to be reckoned with. Burek’s first release ‘KiNK-Leko/Yako EP’ sold out in record time and due to popular demand had to be repressed.
The Croatian label have showcased at many of this year’s festivals including Garden, Hideout, FOR, Unknown & Dimensions…whilst the Burek roster expands and the activities speed up, the label’s next move will be announcing new sub-labels across techno, disco & leftfield music.
