Nurbek is also known as a producer, poet, and music director. He founded his own record label “Nurtuan Records” in 2012, a sound recording firm now operating in California. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
Nurbek started his career on the big stage in 2012 with his brand new stage name ‘Nurtuan’. The name Nurtuan came up from a amalgamation of two words: — ‘Nur’ signifies light, or shine, while ‘Tugan’ (It is pronounced as ‘tuan’ in English) signifies birth. Altogether, Nurtuan means “Born by Light”.
Nurbek founded his recording firm ‘Nurtuan Records’ in August 2012. The next year was a milestone for Nurbek in his career with his debut music video ‘GIVE ME A CHANCE’ in May, 2013.
Growing up in the music pedigree, Nurtuan was particularly familiar with the influence and importance of promotion and marketing in this industry. He understands that without good promotion, your good music will fade away in the twinkling of an eye. So, he initiated ‘Nurkom Promotions’, a promotion and marketing company. Moreover, he has always been dreamed about running a marketing company from his study days in England and China.
The year 2014 was a major breakthrough for Nurtuan as this was the year when he decided to move to Los Angeles to gear up his career.
In the interim, Nurtuan’s new music video ‘I LIKE THE WAY’ received positive feedback from the audience and critics alike.
Later in 2017, Nurtuan decided to rebrand his record label as “Nurtuan Records” to “De Qazo Records”. He chose the term Qazo since it’s more sonorous to Qazaq, his homeland.
