The Brooklyn-based electronica artist, Alex Burkat’s work has been largely inspired by house, techno, hip hop, indie rock, classical and New York’s current (and very vital) music scene.  His work has also been known to draw inspiration from almost everywhere – his debut EP, Shower Scene  which was released last year was inspired by a night out dancing at the Mister Saturday Night partiesTarot, Burkat’s soon-to-released 12 inch will see a July 11th release through purveyors of all things electronica, 100% Silk Records (a label that I’ve become quite a fan of lately). 


Album title track “Tarot” is a shimmering bit of electronica with hot symbols and a loose jazzy feel that manages to be kind of anachronistic – it sounds much like the house music you’d hear at Limelight or at Webster Hall but it’s fresh and subtly modern.
