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.
2019 also marks the inception of a new project, Comanavago with vocalist, Gabriel Swarbrick. Comanavago released their debut album “Heart Failure” on October 2nd 2020. A true celebration of dance pop, Gabriel and Ben strive to make the most fun music possible.
