Stars are born, not made. And this is exactly of comes to mind when we think of DJ and producer, KURA. He’s 28 years old and is already the 42nd most popular DJ in the world in DJ Mag’s Top100 2014. KURA has under his belt several releases for labels such as Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Ferry Corsten’s Flashover Recordings, Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings, Armin Van Buuren’s Trice/Armada Music, as well as Ultra Music.
His name grew as a DJ and he was invited to play as a resident DJ at Lisbon’s Kapital, Tamariz, and then to Gossip, a 1,500 capacity club in Lisbon. Production wise his tracks and remixes were coming out regularly and the invitations to play in other clubs started to come in, it was time to leave his residencies and focus on a freelance career, and that’s what Kura did. As his productions got stronger his invitations to play in bigger & better clubs grew.
The international breakthrough would come with his track “Brazil”. Roger Sanchez picked it up from the thousands of promos he usually receives and played it on his infamous Release Yourself Radio Show. The track was released and Kura’s name became the one to keep an eye on as the fastest riser on the Portuguese EDM scene in years.
2014 begun with Kura at the height of his production and DJ career with two amazing distinctions: he released “Sabotage” through Armada Music label; and received the award for Best Portuguese DJ in Radio Nova Era’s annual awards. By mid-year he would release through Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings and by October debuts in the American giant Ultra Music with a remix for MAKJ & Lil’Jon. As well as the revelation of DJ Mag’s Top100 where he was placed, for the first time, on the 42nd spot, the 5th highest direct entry of 2014 and the highest entry ever for a Portuguese DJ.
明星是天生而不是靠培養的，這亦正讓我們聯想起 DJ及電音製作人 KURA：年僅28歲的他就已經榮登全球第42位DJ，並且他的創作亦在各大唱片品牌推出過，如 Hardwell 的 Revealed Recordings，Ferry Corsten 的 Flashover Recordings，Nicky Romero 的 Protocol Recordings，Armin van Buuren 的 Armada Music，以及聞名世界的 Ultra Music 等。
他在國際樂壇的突破伴隨著他的單曲 “Brazil” 展開。Roger Sanchez 從成千上萬的demo中選中了它並於其著名廣播節目 Release Yourself 中播出。歌曲一出隨即令 KURA 得到全世界的注目，成為其中一位最當紅的新進DJ。
2014年 KURA 有兩項重大突破，分別是透過 Armada Music 推出了單曲 Sabotage，以及得到由 Radio Nova Era 頒出的年度最佳葡萄牙DJ。隨後 KURA 亦透過 Nicky Romero 的 Protocol Recordings 及 Ultra Music 推出多首創作及混音作品。當然，絕對不能不提的是 KURA 首次現身 DJ MAG TOP 100 排名並獲得睇 42 名的高位，這位葡萄牙有史以來最出位的 DJ 絕對是未來一顆不容忽視的超級新星！Read more →
