Burko has taken over the SoCal scene by storm with his uniquely dark-yet-melodic style of house and techno. Today, he releases “Here Before” debuting his own sweet falsetto on the track.

Burko tells us: “When I wrote “Here Before” I was in my last bit of grad school, and had a lot of pressure from family to go into a more traditional line of work after graduation. I knew I needed to push myself and the Burko project harder if I was going to move into music full time after graduating, so I decided to do something with this song I had never done before, sing on my own track. Putting nerves aside of letting my singing voice be heard, I wrote these vocals around the theme of “staying the course.” The lyric in the song, “Don’t lose sight of why we’re here” is a reminder to myself not to lose sight of the dream of making music and touring after graduation, instead of a more traditional route. And the title, “Here Before,” refers to the place in my mind I sometimes end up at, when fear of the future sets in and I have to remind myself to stay the course.”

Beginning his production journey only a few years ago, Burko’s music has been picked up and played by many established DJ’s including Kyle Watson, Steve Darko, Wongo, Londonbridge and SNBRN. Key early support from heavy weights allowed for Burko to sail to the forefront of California’s burgeoning underground scene in a very short order. In 2021, Burko headlined the iconic Spin Nightclub, Bang Bang and played the Grand Artique Stage at Insomniac’s Beyond Wonderland Festival. 

2022 sees Burko rolling out his debut EP, titled Infrared — a 4-track tour de force highlighting the producer’s unequaled style of “Medieval House” music.

Meet 13th Zodiac. LA’s next big house duo that you need to get to know. We received their brand new “Booty Sweat” single this week from ItsNoRequests and absolutely love it. In fact, we can’t get enough. We’ve been abusing the repeat button on Soundcloud since it released. When asked about the meaning of their brand new “Booty Sweat” single, 13th Zodiac said:

“Booty Sweat is a track that is inspired by a global pandemic club-goers face today. The track itself is driven by a thumpy, yet groovy bass line, and followed by a low pitched voice that cuts through the mix to lock down the groove. It is guaranteed to instill perspiration between moist thighs worldwide.”

Available on all your favorite streaming platforms, “Booty Sweat” is the first release of many from the LA duo dropping this summer. Get invested. Keep an eye. 13th Zodiac is a group on the rise.

I literally cannot stop listening to this new tune I discovered! LaDonnis is probably the smoothest new voice on Fools Gold, and I couldn’t be more excited about this tune.

American newcomer Kris Cody just dropped a track called “Zonin Out” featuring the gorgeous voice of Anya Siviski, and man is it brilliant! “This track grasps an emotional state of instability and a blurred mental frame of mind – the feeling of wanting to be with someone so badly, your mind’s adrift, away from physical reality….a story almost everyone goes through at some point” – Kris Cody. The best part about music is its ability to invoke so much raw emotion within the listener, and this track does exactly that! Kris Cody is definitely someone to keep an eye out for, but for now check out “Zonin Out”.
