We are KUURO. デフ
KUURO [cure-oh] is miles beyond your cliché new act.
With over a decade of combined production and engineering experience, members Jordin Post & Luke Shipstad usher in a new project and sound: their bass music alias, KUURO.
KUURO takes their gravitation towards bass music and places it on a collision course with the duo’s affinity for the diverse palette of Asian cultures and aesthetics, and transforms it into a cutting edge approach to electronic music.
Hailed by fans as one of the strongest debuts in Monstercat label history, KUURO has made a formidable impact on the bass music scene since their debut in 2016. Since then, they’ve racked up over 34M streams on digital platforms and their music has reached over 3.5M fans in 79 countries on Spotify.
2018 was a big year for the duo’s development, as they hit the road and established themselves as touring artists, bringing their unique sound to over 20 North America cities including premier festival plays at Lollapalooza, Beyond Wonderland, Electric Zoo, Veld, Holy Ship! and more.
2019 ushers in new projects, new collaborations, and continued growth. Most recently, KUURO released “Replicant,” a collaboration with Delta Heavy on RAM Records, and they also launched their debut sample pack KUURO Sounds Vol. 1 in collaboration with Splice. This April, the duo will also release their first EP on Monstercat, a collection of three tracks each diverse but all encapsulating of the KUURO sound.
KUURO’s music has reached far & wide and has received support from the likes of Zedd, Tiesto, Zeds Dead, Jauz, Allison Wonderland, The Chainsmokers, Afrojack, David Guetta and many others. Their friendship and passion for pushing dance music boundaries has led them into the spotlight by producing official remixes for Zedd & Katy Perry, Galantis, Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE, What So Not & BURNS, Boombox Cartel, and more.
With an insatiable desire for only the highest quality of music production, KUURO’s vision is to encompass a wide array of feelings and moods, from high energy bangers to more laid back and moody records as well. Their newfound love for the genre has allowed them to become creatively unhinged to explore new soundscapes and push their ideas to the very limit and beyond. With this direction, KUURO is poised to be an act that takes their vision to the stage and dominates the dance world in 2019 and beyond.
