My name is Ashley Burkart and I’m a DJ and Producer from Philadelphia, PA. I go by the name ABUR. I’ve been making electronic music for a little over a year and I plan on releasing an EP in the upcoming year.
After being diagnosed with a heart condition, I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to perform live with the alternative music that I was making at the time. I ended up working on electronic music because I was afraid to do too much movement because my heart rate would rise very quickly and would not go back down. With the help and encouragement of close friends, I worked really hard to make music that not only other people would enjoy and connect with, but myself included since this was not a genre I was familiar with. This genre was something and IS something that gave me the opportunity to heal both physically and mentally and I just want to be able to give back everything that it has given to me.
I’m very excited for my future as an artist due to the overwhelming support I have already received. Lastly, with the team that I have, and the people that I have surrounding me, I feel like anything is possible.
If you haven’t checked it out, I currently have a single out on Soundcloud!
