This Friday, Manchester-based producer and Boxed/Swing Ting affiliate Murlo is releasing Club Coil, his third EP for Mixpak. A mix of dancehall/grime-inflected club tracks and vocal-driven songs - namely two cuts with previous collaborator Gemma Dunleavy - it stands as perhaps his most complete work to date.
In recent years, Murlo has collaborated with the likes of Deadboy, Novelist, Fox and Florentino, and turned in wildly successful remixes of Rihanna, Kelela and AJ Tracey. He's also a talented designer and on Club Coil, as ever, all the visuals are done by Murlo himself - just check the video for 'Tired of You' to get an idea of his vision.
Murlo has put together a selection of some of his favourite tracks from recent years that tie in with his "sci-fi noir" aesthetic - so from Mr. Mitch to Cliff Martinez, dig in below.
Club Coil is out 19th May on Mixpak.
CLU - TRANCE LAMENT
This was one of my favourites from last year - gorgeous arpeggios and the song takes you places.
