|It is no secret any more that Brazilians have rhythm in their blood and that the most populous state in South America is full of musical talents. But there has been one guy standing out of the crowd: DJ Murphy!|
Back in the days Ben Long said: "When I saw Murphy playing yesterday I thought I should retire myself, go back to school, play with my mixer in my room again…
I don´t know how to play. Murphy is the future of Techno!!! I don´t know how the world has never discovered a guy like this." But this time is over, because within a short period of time there have been rumours in good old Europe that there was a hot talent in Brazil who made the crowd go mad with his skillz.
But at the latest since Summer of Love 2003 in Czech Republic DJ Murphy is taking Europe by storm, scratching on four turntables – easygoing, without any stress, everything is looking so simple. His fingers are flying between the EQs, faders and turntables. His moves are blurring in the flickering strobe light. If you are twinkling only for one split second you have missed the next mix. That is Murphy in action!
DJ Murphy has the talent, the style and above all the skillz making everything possible for him. Coming from a Hip Hop background, Sao Paulo born Murphy soon drifted into the Techno scene, because he was fascinated by the correct scratching of fast and straight Techno beats, being the biggest challenge for him, as he says. What Techno DJ is able to come up with scratching loops like that easily and giving the sweating crowd his brightest smile at the same time? Murphy is doing this casually, because mixing two tracks the ordinary way would be too simple for him. You can see this for yourself on this year´s TDK Timewarp or Nature One where Murphy is making the Brazilian sun rise at the Century Circus!
Scratching, beatjuggling, perfectly timed backspins and a terrific track selection – that is what the congenial Brazilian is standing for. With his official mix-CD on the prestige label Fine Audio he is proving this one more time. The tracklisting features the who´s who of Techno: Gaetano Parisio, W.J. Henze, Vanguard, DJ Preach, DJ Murphy & Christian Fischer or Robert Natus just to name a few. Veritable fireworks of altogether 25 tracks are waiting for the listener – united in a furious mix, packed with perfect scratches, backspins, his matchless mixing and this very special something, only a Brazilian DJ can give you: pure rhythm, pure vitality, pure sex – always with this little samba blend!
With his first Mix-CD on Fine Audio Recordings DJ Murphy is proving that all the rumours one could hear about the permanently smiling and chain smoking talent of the century are true, that he succeeds in mixing Techno tracks at speed of light, with his incomparable skills and easiness as no one else, adding the accurate dose of funk and groove. Listening to this CD gives you an impression of the energy that is circulating through the crowd, capturing it and creating collective ecstasy when DJ Murphy is standing behind the decks!
