Memories (released in 2001) is Yuri Mamchur's first personal album produced under his early DJ stage name U-Rush.
Yuri has composed music since he was five years old, and produced and DJ-ed since he was a teenager. Memories gathers Yuri's early instrumental compositions arranged in techno, smooth jazz, and new age genres.
Yuri studied classic piano and music theory for eight years at the Moscow City Music School #6. In the late 1990-s Yuri represented a Ukrainian-based record company in Moscow, Russia. In his role, Yuri signed, produced, and distributed multiple artists both in Russia and Ukraine. Eventually, the Kiev-based label served as an ideal platform for Yuri's first personal project.
Memories was recorded between 1999 and 2001 in Yuri's Moscow home studio, and produced in 2001 in Kiev, Ukraine.
