DJ Jurij, professional karateka with a passion for DJing that led him to be one of the most respected European producers, and Frank Synapsi, former Scottish Protestant itinerant priest, knew each other in 2006 at the Town Hall Tavern, one of the most famous pub in Leeds, in a fight that sees them as adversaries.
Jurij has clearly the better of Frank, who after an uppercut indulges in a typical Italian blasphemy. Obviously at that point shots in the arrangement between the two, so in a couple of hours the Kuerty Uyop were born, adopting the name of the first thing that came under their eyes, a PC keyboard, where the first line of letters provided inspiration.
The stories of both served to cement the union:

With Dirrrty Dance! KU want to go back to the origins of the sound, to the land and to their land, choosing Italy as first country of release, with a sound that is a planer in the brain, as always multilingual but giving a nod to the Russian lands, and a video which is already a cult, always shot in KU style in Zelenograd, Moscow suburb, during the hottest summer in history.
