Their Musical Style : Whilst firmly electronic, each track seeks to be written as a standalone track and the team enjoys pushing the boundaries of genre. Their musical influences can be heard from the combination of their individual backgrounds and the output is always an interesting interpretation of genres. Music ranges from funk such as the track “keep it dancin” to the commercial club track “10am” and drifts into deep tech house tracks such as “feel the funk” and “going congo”.
Their debut track, #10am is releasing on 15th August 2014 with the music video being released on RAGE and Youtube, and their recent remix of Tensnake's "Feel of Love" hasn't gone unnoticed as they are community winners of the Beatport Play remix competition.

New Melbourne Electro group LEKTRK announce their much anticipated debut EP and music video Comprising of Michael Clark, DJ Rellik (Tim Tappett) and Intalink (Kris Picolli), they arrive from the recording studio with an exciting EP, music video and some exciting new work. "Our music firmly lands in the electronic/EDM camp", explains Michael. ".. While we are heavily influenced by today's sounds, we don't like to label our sound. If it sounds good, we produce it." One look at the Melbourne DJ's bio's and you can see why they think of themselves as 'un-genre' Michael cut his 'producers teeth' as a prog minimal producer in London during the height of minimal early 2000's as one half of Liminalism. The group found unlikely success with tech house track 'Minor Embolism' and Rei Taak's remix of Steam. DJ Rellik is Melbourne royalty in the DJ and production scene with over 50 album productions under his belt. Rellik recently supporting Obi Trice, Ultra Magnetic MC's and has worked with names such as Wu Tang and the Outlaws (2PAC's crew) the Alkohoiks and Hill Top Hoods

He is an accomplished producer DJ, literally pumping out hundreds of remixes which characteristically stamps his deep funky style on his live sets. The #10am track is a smooth electro tune which will be just at home in a dark, gimey club as it would be at a up-market bar thanks to the soulful vocals of local import, Monique Shelford (NZ).
