Born and raised in Istanbul, Ali Kuru started DJing with borrowed turntables in 2002. Throughout the years he played dub, idm, electronica at bars and lounges while continuing his musical productions. He had releases from Plak Records to MIS Records and appeared at European venues and festivals such as PollerWiesen, Circle of Love, Liga Elektronika, Weekend, Monkeys, Tresor and Culture Club.
From borrowed turntables to running a club and finally focusing on purely production, Ali Kuru has somewhat an experimental career. As Araf- the new EP he recorded for Leng Records hits the stores, there’s no doubt that Kuru reached a new peak in his musical journey. Expect well blended traditional Turkish sounds wrapped with a dubby groove.
