Urbs aka Paul Nawrata has been dj-ing for 15 years in Austria turning the tables usually hip-hop but also breakz.
Starting in 1997, Urbs first production Da Beauty & Da Beatz together with DJ Chaoz on Uptight Records, single Closer to God made it on several compilations both the original version and the remix by Thievery Corporation. 2000 - 2003 saw Urbs working together with DJ Cutex, Break of Dawn on Hongkong Rec. was his international breakthru.
The last two years, Urbs was working on his first solo Album Toujours le même film finding a complete change in style, from hip-hop to soundtrack but never losing his hip-hop roots producing several breaks and hip-hop remixes for Pulver Records and Patrick Pulsinger austrian fame.
Urbs' influences started off in his youth listening to classic tunes and New Wave, noise, metal, and of course hip-hop. Looking for special tunes, Urbs started collecting soundtracks, chansons and Jazz of the 60s. Today, Urbs most influences for his album Toujours le même film are Ennio Morricone, Serge Gainsbourg, Francis Lai, Francois de Roubaix, Alain Goraguer, and original scores in general.
