Kuren - Never Enough ft Sam Phay     Electronic 01/06/2018
20-year-old self-taught producer Kuren has evolved into a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and story teller and his signature emotive electronica earmarking him a talent well beyond his years.

Featuring Sam Phay, "Never Enough" is part of a concept where a man is given a choice between heaven and hell, the song building to a dark crescendo as he approaches the end.
