Plugins & Gear used by KURA | The Essential Vol. 1 Catalog
While having a part-time job at a skate shop right at the beach in Lisbon, Kura came across a DJ set, resulting in at love at first sight. Besides practicing his DJ skills, he also started making bootlegs. Combining Sydney Samson’s Work It (Hardwell Remix) together with the magical voice of Bob Marley gained him local attention as a DJ/producer. His track Brazil resulted in a breakthrough internationally as no other than Roger Sanchez started to support his track.
