ltd 20216 repress ! italian producers steve murphy and dj octopus are regular collaborators, and earlier this year released an excellent split ep on chiwax. here, they return to the much adored german imprint with a proper collaborative four-tracker. theres much to admire, from the rush-inducing bounce of opener track 1 and mr lee-ish cheekiness of track 2 (check the 89 style riff, snappy drum machine groove and cut-up vocal samples), to the impeccable depth and sun-drenched warmth of the decidedly wide-eyed track 3. arguably best of all, though, is track 4, which reimagines sir james 1990 strictly rhythm classic special as an immersive chicago deep house jam.
despite his artist name and his trademark sound, steve murphy does not come from chicago, but from mira, a little town on the suburban area of venice. steve has been djing since 2001, and in the past years has been rocking almost every club in his region. he is serious and professional behind the decks: playing only with vinyl, he blends electro and house, techno and new wave, acid madness and pop appeal. steve has produced together with die roh an album (-the chasm-) and one e.p (-windy city-) on chiwax, and a solo 10- (-planet earth-) on rawax, these records have quickly gone out of stock and that have been acclaimed by the lovers of the classic warehouse sounds. in 2012 he has started the riviera project and has founded the muscle records label, together with lucretio, dj octopus, caio, madì grein and chevel. the label is a facility to spread what has been called -the sound of brenta-: a raw, nasty, machines powered clash of house and techno. in 2012 he also released -the dove ultimatum- on vae victis records, under the moniker of durant: an unfriendly 12- of distorted electro and funky acid beats produced with die roh and lucretio.
steve murphys curiously long shadow casts itself ever further over the realms of gritty house and techno with a barn-storming follow up on the lobster theremin core series, this time ratcheting up the tempo and rhythm to epic levels. shed-esque kicks thunder over asteroid-crumbling basslines, crackling wooden percussion is slammed into the muggy dirt and leaves, seriously filthy, rolling numbers for the all night crew.
*uk treatment* kicks and thumps in all the right places, with a stuttering synth stab loop and vocals giving it some serious peak time currency. *spleen* is all sludgy, skittering mpc business, while *rules* goes off-key chicago and *total recall 2084* swims around, pestered in the mud until a lonely, droning piano key scares away the flanged swarm of wasps and noise.
the second love note from brooklyn is with us and this time its the all-hardware stylings of dj octopus and steve murphy of chiwax fame. all tracks show serious depth, though untitled 02 is the stand out for its dancibility and force.

steve murphy joins the lobster theremin stable with a roaring and varied ep. the a-side plunges a big room sensibility with eyes behind the door and relax both rolling on the back of techno-driven house music. the flip sees trams electro-tinged wave drops and try it, possibly murphys deepest track to date. two bumper techno locked grooves too for good measure!
