Shurk (originally Shirk) is the brainchild of 22 year old London-based producer Benjamin Dunkerley. Since its inception in June 2013 the project has been steeped in mythical lore.
The Shurk character wears a plague-doctor hybrid mask, and features on the cover of every release.
In June 2014 YouTube celebrity Markiplier discovered Haunted, the opening track of Launch EP while playing a demo version of the video game Critical Annihilation (Video Game Soundtrack). Markiplier immediately began using the song as his regular outro, and Shurk has received millions of streams as a result. He went on to release several successful projects, including Absolution and A Darker World with European dance label, Tasty.
In May 2019, while finishing his music studies at the University Of Surrey, Shurk released Per Form signalling a mature experimental direction for the project. In collaboration with Actual Size Dance Company, the project debuted as a contemporary dance performance at The Ivy Arts Centre to a sold out venue on 13/05/2019.
2019 also marks the inception of a new duo project, Comanavago with vocalist, Gabriel Swarbrick. COMANAVAGO explores the lines between queer pop, PC Music and R&B, heard in Crying on the Kitchen Floor.
In September 2019, Benjamin released his first official remix for french artist L.A. Rochelle - No More (Encore) (Shurk Remix). Benjamin is introducing more of the man behind the mask, consistent with his own personal development and aesthetics.
