Emerging from the cold center of Vancouver’s club scene, Spurz (Colin Moir) has gained steady attention since releasing his first EP Spirit Functions on Drama Hands (a label/club night he co-runs). His sophomore effort Urban Deity (Tessier-Ashpool Recordings) dove deeper into elements of grime, UK funky, ballroom, techno and jungle, focused through a signature crystalline sound and caught ears both locally and worldwide.

After a release on Kastle’s Symbols label, a slew of remixes and original material followed, landing plays on Rinse FM, Radar Radio and NTS, receiving support from Mumdance, Kastle, Druid Cloak, Celestial Trax amongst others.

In a live setting, Spurz has been known to play anything and everything, pulling from everywhere to eschew the constraints of genres, weaving a unique aural tapestry that supplies a heavy & low-end focused workout for the dance.
