"Growing up next to Loch Ness, Karuva was born into an eccentric musical family – learning how to play electric guitar, drums, slap bass and freestyle piano, all before he had stubble on his face.
To feed his constant hunger for music and exploration, his travels then took him around the party capitals of the world (including New York, Barcelona, Berlin, Sydney, Amsterdam, Ibiza and Miami) - opening his eyes and ears to the international house music movement. The buzz and thrill of electronic music became an obsession, completely confirming the direction of his life!
Developing a sharp ear as a DJ, his own unique slant on house music was born – incorporating live instrumentation and drawing on influences from as wide as Jamie Jones to Jimi Hendrix!
With several years of international DJ experience under the belt, the time came for his production ideas to be unleashed to the industry. Since launching as Karuva, his music has already been featured by Mixmag, aired on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM, been the subject of two national TV interviews and been championed by artists including Claude VonStroke, Annie Mac, Golf Clap, Danny Howard, Will Clarke, Shiba San, Kolombo, Davide Squillace, Maximono and Billy Kenny. This has led to prominent DJ bookings at Galaxy (Macau), Lightbox, 93 Feet East and Magic Roundabout (London), T in the Park (Glasgow), Bora Bora and Savannah (Ibiza), along with warm up sets for Yousef and Amine Edge.
A forthcoming radio show is en route, along with an exciting live show - which will incorporate electric guitar, drums, slap bass and freestyle synths into his DJ sets. One to keep an eye on!"
