NURKO is back yet again with ‘Spinnin’ Wheels’, another lead single that directly follows up last month’s collaborative endeavor ‘Lost Without You’ with Crystal Skies and KnownAsNat. This time around, the renowned powerhouse effortlessly builds anticipation for the imminent release of his highly-anticipated ‘Arrival’ EP and spring U.S. tour, and is joined alongside vocalist JT Roach, who provides his harmoniously rich, textured singing throughout the track’s entirety.
The atmospheric tune kicks off with an acoustic guitar, followed by additional faint instrumentation and the introduction of Roach’s melodious vocal. Quintessential melodic bass at its absolute best, NURKO’s latest original production audibly boasts all of the best signature sensibilities the genre has to offer including a larger-than-life ambiance, profound lyricism, hard-hitting bass drops, and an emotionally-charged tone that’s maintained with ease from start-to-finish. In all, it serves as a monumental release for both artists as the forthcoming release of the ‘Arrival’ EP draws nearer.
Renowned DJ/producer Jack Leech, known professionally as NURKO, grew up in New Jersey in a family with generations of artists. Encouraged to be creative since birth, he picked up both drums and piano as a child and went on to study music in college. Using the classical knowledge of music with the influence of sub genres of electronic music on the internet, the moniker NURKO was born. His first big track, ‘Goodbye,’ released in 2015 and soon after was followed by ‘Your Embrace,’ which garnered over 2 million streams and YouTube channel placements on MrSuicideSheep and Chill Nation. Continuing the momentum, NURKO released an unofficial remix of Halsey’s hit single ‘Without Me,’ which went on to surpass 40 million plays on YouTube tastemaker channel Trap Nation.
Subsequently, the years following marked a huge turning point for NURKO with him releasing an arsenal of singles and remixes with millions of streams and support from the likes of Gryffin, Seven Lions, Adventure Club, Jauz, Cash Cash, Codeko, Alison Wonderland, Timmy Trumpet, Zeds Dead, R3hab, and more. NURKO’s 2021 lead singles ‘Disappearing Now’ and ‘Hallelujah’ now collectively sit at over 2.2 million combined streams across all platforms, effortlessly setting an exciting precedent as for what to expect with his upcoming ‘Arrival’ EP.
JT Roach is a multifaceted, Los Angeles-based musician who has been active in the music landscape over the course of the last several years. Initially starting off as a songwriter, Roach would go on to craft songs for the likes of French Monatana, Krewella, Lil Jon, and Nicky Romero, to name a few. 2017 and 2018 saw him release a slew of solo singles, with an eventual 6-track 2019 EP ‘Witches Lake’ serving as a pivotal release for the talent. Delving into the realm of EDM as of late, he’s since been featured as a vocalist on ‘Potions’ alongside SLANDER and Said The Sky, in addition to tracks with Adventure Club, Bear Grillz, Jason Ross, and Subtronics, amongst others.
Continuing to establish what his vision and music is all about, NURKO has found himself in a period of growth and experimentation through the rollout of his forthcoming ‘Arrival’ EP and his upcoming U.S.A. tour. Preparing to enter a new phase this year with a slew of releases and projects down the line, NURKO is on the path towards making 2022 his biggest year yet.
