Hailing from East London “Bartek Echolc” known simply as B@RTEK uses his love for both American Hip-hop and British grime to artfully combine both aspects of the genres to create music which expertly brings out the best in both.
B@RTEK – has released his anticipated debut album XVII (17) it is a solo which will appear largely on streaming sites and online radio.
B@RTEK recorded the entire album himself utilising all the resources he had available and subsequently never stepped foot in the studio. His hands-on approach to making music led him to outsource only the album art and production of beats preferring to handle the mixing and mastering himself. This led to a unique sounding vibe with each song being its own story which all together characterise the entire journey that was the creation of XVII.
The album consists of 15 tracks, 14 of which never heard before. The mood mirrors the emotion and events that conspired during its recording. Three distinct moods can be identified by keen listeners too can the distinct flow variation used within each track. A notable track is Clint Eastwood which covers the thoughts of B@RTEK when first entering the industry as well as his first impressions on many of its typical members and their conduct.
B@RTEK said “Having only done a limited release of G4ME (One of the tracks on the album used to garner interest in B@RTEK’s music) I was gassed with the reaction of people both in my life and online, the shout out win from @hiphop_promo was a nice addition to that.”
Maximus Mustafa, B@RTEKS manager says he has high hopes for the success of his album. He stated, “It so expertly tailors to the sound that Hip-hop is currently leaning towards whilst simultaneously brining more to the table”.
