It’s quite the success story, the tale of Curbi. Bursting onto the scene in 2015 at the tender age of 16, he provided audiences with some instant dance classics like ‘Discharge’, ‘Rubber’ and the Fox Stevenson collab ‘Hoohah’, all reaching high in the Beatport charts, gaining millions of streams.
By now, Curbi isn’t the new kid on the block anymore. His name resembles a modern take on contemporary house music, moving into a more raw, gritty sound that keeps on evolving with every release. 2016 records like ‘51‘, ‘Triple Six‘ (released on Tiësto’s Musical Freedom label) and ‘Red Point‘ turned into festival favorites, while Curbi himself grew into a full fledged artist – renowned for his high energy DJ performances.
Enter 2017, with the early crowd pleaser ‘Shinai‘ on everybody’s radar, thanks to an immense line of DJs playing the track to bits. Guys like Zedd, Skrillex, Tiësto and Martin Garrix as well as Oliver Heldens, The Chainsmokers, Don Diablo and Steve Aoki are giving the track full support, using it as one of their festival DJ weapons or featuring it on their radio show.
Which makes sense, as ‘Shinai‘ surely is a new milestone in Curbi’s ongoing evolution. Safe to say, it’s a melodic masterpiece erupting in a cool electro house climax, heavy on the groove, solid in the bass. Works wonders with every festival crowd, as it’s already proven by now.
“Shinai all started with a cool euphoric break I had made back in November 2016. I wanted to go for a different direction that I hadn’t been before.. So I came up with a techno inspired drop. The track quickly came together and now ‘Shinai’ is alive.” – Curbi
