Introducing KUREN; the 18 y/o indigenous producer from a small town named Hillston in Central West NSW (population 1500). His sound is raw and exciting, emotional and engaging. His moody music can hit you right where it counts or get you up and moving with its vibrant percussive switch ups. His debut EP was a work crafted in retrospect of his own story of young love and loss while his edits and remixes bring exciting new life to the stories of others.
Having only just turned 18 and completing high school last year despite lengthy time off taking extra shift at the local IGA to support his family. It’s a story of perseverance and discovery which is perfectly portrayed through the evolution of his art form.
Grown through the grass roots of JJJ Unearthed and already picked up in press by everyone from Hypetrak to ABC Radio National, there has never been a better time to get familiar.
“The collage of sounds that ensue are a brilliant reminder of the genius in innocence and youth.”
