Along with life as a musician Kurt has been collecting music since his youth, amassing an extensive vinyl collection. A natural conclusion was to play these records out in public which he has been doing as a Dj since ’97. He has spun records around New Zealand and Australia as well as performances in the USA, Canada, UK and Africa.
He hosted the long running Supafly Funk show on RDU in Canterbury for over a decade and has spent time behind the turntables in support of some great artists, such as : Mr Scruff, Lee Perry, The Mad Professor, Jazzanova, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Recloose, Opensouls, Electric Wire Hustle, Manuel Bundy, Sunshine Sound System and Frank Booker among others.
Kurt has been in Auckland since 2011, after trekking around the globe soaking up music from many countries and cultures. You can catch him spinning the platters that matter around Auckland on weekends. Selecting soul filled music spanning Jazz, Funk, Boogie, Latin, Afrobeat, Reggae and Hiphop.
