“Growing up at Loch Ness, Karuva was born into an eccentric musical family - learning the art of DJing, in addition to playing electric guitar, drums, slap bass and freestyle piano.
Driven by a wild and untamed creativity, his unique slant on house music utilises live instrumentation and draws on influences from as wide as Jamie Jones to James Brown - integrating funk as a component in each of his records.
Catching the ears of the industry, Karuva’s productions have been aired on BBC Radio 1, BBC 1XTRA, Kiss FM, Dirtybird Radio and Toolroom Radio, featured by Mixmag and been the subject of two national TV interviews. Artists championing his music include Danny Howard, Claude VonStroke, Roger Sanchez, Golf Clap, Mark Knight, TCTS, Erick Morillo, Maximono, Kolombo, Will Clarke, Illyus & Barrientos, Billy Kenny and Davide Squillace.
Behind the decks, Karuva has enjoyed rocking UK clubs including Steel Yard, Tobacco Dock, Lightbox, 93 Feet East and Magic Roundabout, Chinese venues including Galaxy and Ibiza venues including Bora Bora and Savannah (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!"
