Biography

There are more than one artist named Kirk.

1. (?)Doesn’t have a distinct birth, just as it doesn’t want to have an end. This project is a doing of three guys from Plock (Poland). In the early years we were making techno which quickly shifted from under control . We try to catch that rampant layers of our brains sleeping in all of us and remodel it with awareness. We can speak about well-considered aesthetics for the first time on karton+. It’s this album where a new weapon was gained - peculiar style. This style is only a starting point, not a dogma. With karton+ our family enlarges - vocalist Aga and DJ DoT.Boy are fished out for the benefit of audiosphere. A little later, a new throat joined our line - Evel. New collaborations and projects are to come soon under the patronage of our consequent not clearly-defined form. kIRk - expanding the formula.


2. If you consider yourself a major expert on hip hop but have never heard of Kirk, don’t be surprised. The little known hardcore rapper recorded only one album, Makin’ Moves, for Atlantic, and it didn’t get very much attention outside of New York. The album’s lack of commercial success was hardly a tragedy, for Makin’ Moves is quite forgettable. The New Yorker has strong rapping skills, and there’s no question that he has a lot of technique. But technique is about the only thing Makin’ Moves has going for it. Kirk spends the entire album doing nothing but boasting about his rhyming skills and complaining about “sucker MCs, ” and his lyrics are as routine and run-of-the-mill as the tracks. Kirk claimed KRS-One as one of his primary influences, but this generic, predictable release isn’t even a fraction as creative as any of KRS’ work. Makin’ Moves is an album to pass on.
