Manchester collective Murkage have posted their new release 'The Imperial Mixtape Vol. 1' online - listen to it now.
First, it was a club night. Then it became several club nights. Finally, Murkage entered the studio, laying their innovative sound down on tape. Fusing hip hop with electronics, R&B with soul, the Manchester collective is a sprawling mixture of DJs, producers, promoters and guest artists.
New release 'The Imperial Mixtape Vol. 1' showcases each of these talents and more. Mixed live by Klepto DJ, it's a mesh of club favourites, new material and unreleased edits.
"We come from the rave scene and it influences the sound of the record," explains Murkage Dave, the project’s founder. "But at the same time we bring what we do in the live environment - that festival feel and that punk energy - into the club. That’s what makes it such a next experience. Murkage is all about crashing amazing things together to make something even greater."
