What do you get when you combine tribal instrumentation influenced by African culture and the sound of London’s underground techno scene? Trikk of course, the Portuguese born DJ and music producer whose lineage lies somewhere in Mozambique, who then moved to London and has most recently relocated to Berlin. As a true artist of the world since his emergence in 2011, his sound is a refined and carefully executed minimal techno ensemble, that relies on carefully selected sounds to carry simplistic rhythms and arpeggiations.
A perfect example of this lies in his recent EP ‘Florista‘ released on Amê and Dixon’s record label Innervisions in 2016, a beautifully intricate body of work that acts as a dedication to his Father, and succinctly defines the ‘Trikk’ sound. His most recent Innervisions project entitled ‘Vilara‘ has received love from the likes of Tale Of Us and Solomun, and surpasses our expectations of just how good he really is. With further releases on record labels Lossless, Optimo Trax, and Drumcode, Trikk is making his first ever Australian appearance this summer, over 3 epic nights that are not to be missed.
One of Porto’s finest exports, a city that is gathering a reputation as a great incubator of underground movements and the ultimate inspirational city for musicians of the most obscure sub-genres. Trikk was praised as a young talent and embraced by so many asnew star to look out for. After releasing on labels such ManMakeMusic and Lossless and remixes for Hotflush Recordings, Pets Recordings and more, nothing was left to prove.
As a personal challenge, he moved to London where he now spends his days producing music and djing. Trikk explores mainly house aesthetics in complex tracks, wisely composed. Trikk is fast, slow, rough and smooth all at the same time. Young, courageous and unique: a true member of today’s underground.
