One of West London’s best loved home grown talents Si Kurrage has been a dedicated vinyl junkie since his rise to fame in the common room at Richmond College in 1992.
Si Kurrage prefers not to be musically tied to one specific genre of music. He strives to create a unique blend of whats new and old and all that’s in between to take you on an aural adventure every time.
Along the way Kurrage has amassed a close network of London based Djs and promoters, he is co-founder of the famous “Size Doesn’t Matter” seven inch only night, Disco King of the sultry and ever so slightly saucy “Aphrodisiacs” and a firm regular at the “Canal Parties”, “The Notting Hill Carnival” and regularly supports Rootikal, Sancho Panza, Black Rabbit and many more besides…
