BORN AND RAISED IN MOMBASA KENYA, now living in the UK. Producer, singer/songwriter & vocalist for my Band U H U R U (pronounced 'oo-hoo-roo' is a Swahili word and means freedom) a 5 piece band from Southampton who play EDM 'live' generating smooth synth sounds, heavy bass lines and dramatic drops. Operating principally in the genres of House, Dubstep, Drum n Bass and Electro House, but also incorporating elements from Reggae, Funk, Trap and Glitch Hop. Catchy vocal melodies & hook lines along with the use of guitars, synthesizers & drums blend together to deliver a dance-set with real power and punch. My original track 'ON MY SKIN' has been signed to DLA Black Recordings and is available on iTunes tinyurl.com/otk6x7u
