Today we’re featuring UK talent Shur-i-kan in the mix series, an accomplished keyboard player who cut his teeth working in various bands in London and longtime contributor to improvisational dance super group The Bays.
Shur-i-kan has been an important figure in the development of Jimpsters’ celebrated Freerange Records label – a relationship that stretches all the way back to 2001 and has left a legacy of two studio albums and a string of classic house EPs that include Living Inside, I Want It, Future Fantasy and One Night In Tokyo.
Representing the deeper side of house, Tom’s acclaimed productions are consistently in heavy demand having remixed the likes of Akabu, Trackheadz, Miguel Migs, Robert Babicz, Fred Everything amongst others. Ever difficult to pigeon hole Shur-i-kan’s productions can also be found on top labels such as Simple, NRK and Winding Road. He is also well known for his numerous collaborations with Glasgow house kingpin Milton Jackson and their label Dark Energy has released artists such as Ian Pooley, M.A.N.I.K. and Tom Middleton.
As a DJ Shur-i-kan continues to travel the world many times over and his monthly radio show has a dedicated following stretching from US to Asia.
