New EP release - "Hear Me - The Remixes" is out now 24th September
The idea for this release started when Carl Cox loved "Hear Me" so much that he asked if he could remix it. Naturally we said yes and decided to put on our dancing shoes and put together a full remix package. It took a while but here it is, sounding fantastic and finished off with great artwork from Tim Gilbert. Enjoy!
You can get it on itunes here..

After a much longer than anticipated wait we're back! Our new EP "K2" is out now and features new tracks "Easy Riser","Chemical City", and "Beyond The Stars". It also includes "Submariner" which has only ever previously been released on the Cafe Del Mar "Dreams 4" compilation. There's a taster on the Soundcloud page if you wanna take a listen.

"I Believe" (which featured on Cafe Del Mar Volume 14, and the "K1" EP) now has 5 million plays and counting on Youtube. Nothing to do with the chiffon dress we're sure...Check it out here:
Cafe Del Mar - Alicante, Spain
The summer has arrived and the sunset season came early for KORU with several May gigs in Alicante, Cafe Del Mar and Mosquito Bar being some of their favorites. Koru were invited back to Alicante for various dates after last year’s success.
"Our music just works over there" explains John. "The vibe is very Spanish and the older Cafe Del Mar material is a perfect fit"..
In the lab: remixing
The Koru boys are currently pulling together some remixes for Hear Me that will be released as a separate EP in August. There are already a couple of more upbeat mixes including a fantastic Primo mix, and Matt is working on an ultra chilled Atticus mix. The legendary Mr Carl Cox loves this track and wants to remix it, so time permitting we hope to have a mix from him as well. We are also working on remixes for a forthcoming track "No troubles" that has massive dance floor potential. We'll post you a couple of tasters soon!
