the only thing that keeps detroit swindle from actually being from detroit is that they are born and raised in amsterdam, a little over 6000 kilometers away. so even though they’ve got their 4 feet firmly positioned on dutch soil, their heads and hearts are rooted deep into the soul of the motor city.
hugo barritt was a promoter at londons infamous egg venue, during which time he focused his attention on robert owens residency at the club. a friendship was struck up and when hugo finally decided to leave to concentrate on production he could think of no-one better to provide the vocals to you are than the most recognisable voice in dance music, mr owens himself.befitting such a wonderful coupling, efdemin heard the track and agreed immediately to provide the remix,and a splendidly slick ride it is too, taking the merest hints of roberts vocal whilst injecting a melodic feel for a blissed out ride through the early hours. contrast that with high octane thrills of murmur regular tom demacs remix - dispensing with the subtleties of the original in favour of a power house ride of beats and bass, warping roberts vocal into something altogether sleazier.
next up on murmur sees the addition of a new artist onto our roster of talent. london based hamids debut features the vocal talents of valentina, her sultry vocals laid over an intoxicating deep house ride, perfect for those after hours vibes. up & coming talent jay shepheard provides the first remix. fresh from his latest excursion on this own retrofit label, jay firms up the beats & percussion, adding a catchy b line and twinkling synth work into proceeding. finally, inxec & andrei osyka up the stakes, taking the core elements of hamids original and taking them to new euphoric heights with an altogether more epic vibe.
dance music legend chez damier dusts down this past murmur hit by commander in chief geddes and mic newman to produce two house versions. chez damiers alternative remix is already setting the dancefloor of the panorama bar ablaze due to solid support from the ever excellent cassy. with its rolling groove, shuffling percussion and tough drums it looks set to be a staple in many more djs boxes over the following months. chezs flute mix loosens up the percussion and injects a slightly deeper musical feeling and makes it a more than worthy alternative choice.
murmurs main label returns after more than a years absence with an artist who has undergone something of a transformation of late with a future release set for the revitalised and highly revered >classic< label, marc ashken eschews the more stripped down, minimal beats of past releases to bring together a more phatter, housier sound in collaboration with fabio teti on >don do dat< and floyd lavine on flip side track >do dat<. >don do dat< is s chunky house main room house groover and will no doubt be a key feature in many a djs box over the coming months. flip for the >anonym< remix of >do dat< for a techier workout whilst the original version rounds off the package with an altogether more uplifting jaunt
melbournes finest mic newman reignites the offshoot murmur-? label with three incisive, deep house cuts that prove why hes at the beating heart of the australian house scene and stirring up support worldwide for his consistently quality output.
played by karotte & sven vÄth at timewarp 2010!!! chris wood & meat return from their splash on kindische for another electric package, this time on murmur with backdown ep complete with sascha dive remix. backdown is a truly head-turning release – setting up three takes on one track touching on high-end percussion, brass instrument led melodies and the voiced enquiry – do you want it? this package comes with a dub version and sascha dive remix, each accentuating their own unique take on the original. the original melts with a sumptuous hook within a low end bassline before dropping into a restless trumpet fanfare. sascha dive puts a warm and driving house spin on the track, preparing it for those early moments on the dancefloor whilst the dub is the quirky and more looming take on the original one to keep the bodies moving.
decks tip : >500 shapes< best moodymann stylee !!!!! two years ago murmur set out with a mission to make their mark on the underground house and techno landscape. along the way they guided the journeys of a bright array of artists, heralding early releases from nick curly, mic newman, nima gorji, bearweasel, tom demac, craig torrance and labelhead geddes, and have forged their own unique musical stamp. happy with that achievement they are now expanding and launching a new arm - murmur-? – creating a concept not to direct from but to compliment its forebearer, murmur-? is a chance to encounter a new shade of music, not just about floorfillers, but exploring music with soul, music with a different tempo and style, often still material you could play in a club but that can also be played and enjoyed anywhere.
‘sizzled sally’ has caused many a storm on dancefloors this summer, an unforgettable treat of a record from the refreshing palette of mic newman. title track ‘sizzled sally’ is the most requested and hyped murmur release to date, the sound of the past meeting the present in an original and winning recipe. slices of piano and rapturous vocal screams unite in a sharp evocative atmosphere, forming the heart of the track that stays with you long after the lights come up. b side ‘5 o’clock’ is another late night burner, stocked with an arsenal of funk and fired out with great velocity
