Manchester Band Murkage Published on Friday, 16 March 2012 11:41
Murkage Cartel, a 23-strong group as well as being fantastic DJs, create their own sounds, bringing in elements of old school grime and hip hop.
As well as being an amazing collection of mcs and producers, Murkage run their own night at South nightclub, Manchester, it is a grimey night full of music, good vibes, and an unaccountable amount of energy. This massively renowned night of 'Murkage Madness' has sparked the interest of the public eye for almost eight years, and they are now receiving a huge amount of attention from newspapers such as 'The Guardian'. The night itself has an unbelievable atmosphere, it is refreshing to see the artists speaking to their fans and involving the crow. I had a few minutes to speak to members of the Cartel, and they were humble and genuinely interested in the questions I asked. They said that they have a lot of material in the pipeline, and that anyone following Murkage should be in for a treat.
My personal favourite track by Murkage is 'Torches'; every verse radiates energy, and each member's talents are reflected in a unique mixture of aggressive, catchy lyrics, jumpy bassline, and chaotic synth. This track will defiantly be destroying the club scene in the near future.
The Talent within the Cartel is astounding, and is improving with every track they create. I would urge anyone to listen to the Murkage Cartel; they are flying their flag high and proud, and no one is going to stop them.
