Jey Kurmis is a Leeds based producer who has been djing all over the UK for almost ten years and producing for around 7 years. From his first ever release on Phobic Records to his more recent offerings for Hot Creations, Jey has been honing his craft with his music being championed by some of the biggest names in the game.
His first Hot Creations release entitled, Lil Nic French EP dropped on Hot Creations in July 2014. A four pronged attack of bumping summer jams flecked with infectious vocals – lead track Lil Nic French first appeared on Richy Ahmeds massive Rinse FM compilation and rightly sets the tone with its heavy bass beat and mind bending acid line. With the chunky, percussive LA Shazz, the tight kicks and cowbell of the groovy Lover and the freaky groover Miss Raadi the EP made a statement of intent that shows no sign of waning.
With his arsenal of originals and a steady release schedule on some top labels as well as an ever-busier gig schedule which includes the infamous, Paradise@ DC10 in Ibiza 2015 is set to see the rise of Jey Kurmis and truly mark him out as one to watch.

The Exploited Records poster boy steps back into the spotlight with a winning formula that’s gained him support throughout clubs worldwide.
Belgian producer Mickey delivers a sensual groover that’s destined to get those juices flowing.
This deep and seductive burner carries some solid disco and house elements that are arranged in a way that sounds completely fresh.
Berlin’s Exploited can be counted on to deliver those world-class house grooves, often equally bringing both a classic and modern flavor with their releases, and the latest from Mickey does a wondrous job of bleeding these seemingly-different elements together in his latest single ‘Disco Lights’. A chunky house stepper with a rollicking bass groove, jaunty piano stabs and some mean, vintage funk sample appropriation. Its a lively, juicy fruit slab of bumpin’ disco house.
