Demuir - Sydney, NSW
Demuir’s eclectic house sound exudes funky, sexy and soulful beats that are consistently recognized and sought by fellow artists and dance music fans around the world. Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Demuir started off as a child playing around on his Dad’s Hammond B3 organ, before beginning to play music seriously at the age of 16, with skills covering the keys, bass guitar, drums and percussion instruments. He first fell in love with house music after hearing Derrick May’s “Strings of Life”, and by seeing May, DJ Sneak, and Mark Farina at Industry, the legendary Toronto nightclub.
Recently featured as Beatport's Hype Artist in 2018 and previously awarded #1 Jacking House Producer of both 2015 & 2016 by Traxsource, Demuir’s musical output has truly led him to stand out amongst his peers and be championed by dance music’s elite artists.
Cassy made him the A&R of her newly launched label Kwench Records and Demuir will be joining her at the Kwench label party at ADE with his well established label Purveyor Underground. Recent highlights of his releases include a collaboration EP with Cassy on her brand new label Kwench Records, a massive double EP release on Music for Freaks and some yet unannounced work with Carlo Lio. These releases are another addition to his growing catalog, including EP’s on the legendary label Classic Music Company as well as Jesse Rose’s imprint Play It Down, and multiple releases on DJ Sneak’s labels including EP’s on I’m A House Gangster, and his most recent full-length album TruSkool on Sneak’s Magnetic Recordings.
Not to be outdone by his skills in the studio, Demuir is equally impressive as a live performer with a track record of prolific DJ sets. He first perfected his craft in his native Canada at venues like Nest & One Loft in Toronto, Salon Daomé & Circus in Montreal, Rhonda in LA. Now he’s taken his talents global, with recent performances at Amsterdam Dance Event, Ocean Beach Club on Ibiza, Sektor 909 in Macedonia, and at The BPM Festival. Demuir’s incredible career ascent shows no signs of slowing down for 2018and beyond. A new full-length album on I’m A House Gangster, multiple EP’s on a slew of labels, and a global tour are just a few of the things to look for from this purveyor of all sounds underground.
