Shur-i-kan :: Live @ RTS.FM 17-Dec-10


This is the latest mix from Shur-i-kan.  I have this mix a heavy rotation right now as I run the streets of São Paulo.  Over the past couple years, I've really become a fan of his work; both DJing and producing.  He has a monthly radio show called Dark Energy Radio Show which I highly recommend.  Here's some background on him according to Discogs.com:
"Shur-i-kan’s trademark blend of musicality with cutting edge electronic production has been turning heads and gaining fans for a number of years now.
An accomplished keyboard player Tom cut his teeth working in various jazz funk bands in London and to this day is still a long time member of improvisional dance super group The Bays. As a producer however, Shur-I-kan was first discovered by legendary DJ Tom Middleton (Jedi Knights, Global Communication), who released the debut track "Niomi's Dream" on the seminal Jedi's Night Out compilation for Mixmag.
Shur-i-kan has been a long time and key contributor to Jimpsters’ Freerange Records label (voted Best British Label 2007 by DJ Mag readers) - a relationship that started with the dreamy jazz influenced "Advance" (2001), and the more dance orientated follow-up album "Waypoints" (2004) and continues with a string of classic house EP’s that include “Living Inside”, “I Want It”, “Special Powers” and “Future Fantasy”.
Representing the deeper side of house, Shur-I-kan’s distinctive acclaimed productions have been in heavy demand having remixed the likes of Akabu, Trackheadz, Miguel Migs, Milton Jackson and Fred Everything amoungst others. Recently Shur-I-kan has ventured into techier territory with his much lauded Berlin Rising EP on Defected imprint Physical Graffiti and forthcoming releases on Urban Torque, Freerange and Winding Road Records.
Now considered amongst the top of the new wave of deep house producers/djs, Shur-I-kan with fans including Ben Watt, Funk D’ Void, Spirit Catcher and Jimpster. Shur-i-kan has been building a reputation as a formidable and exciting international DJ and has traversed the world many times rocking crowds from Tokyo, to LA with his deep and jackin’ sound."
