Add to this his remarkable charisma and talents on a DJ booth and you have the key ingredients to make it in today’s competitive and worldwide Electronic scene.
It’s rather curious for a DJ that names Hardwell, Axwell, Nicky Romero and Alesso as his main references when it comes to music production to have been introduced to dance music through Carl Cox’s Fact 2 compilation. KURA was 11 years old when a classmate’s Walkman playing “Fact 2” captured his attention. This was the first electronic dance music CD bought by KURA, and the dance music expedition began. By the early 2000s, he started going out to clubs and his attention grew sonically to the disco filtered French touch of Martin Solveig, Modjo, Black Legend, and of course, to the big beat of his all-time musical heroes, Daft Punk.
Growing up with such musical diversity had a long and withstanding effect on Kura: he loves music whether it’s underground or commercial, as long as it’s good and strong, he’ll surely and happily play it. The high school’s radio station was just one step ahead and that’s where Kura began to select records and play them for an audience.
