On Tuesday January 10 Nervous Records started off the New Year in style by bringing Murkâ€™s Ralph Falcon to Cielo. Not only did Ralph play all of the tracks from his extensive catalog but heâ€™s also brought along his friend singer Jane Jei for a special live performance and NYC debut of the current Murk/Intruder smash, Amame.
Amame is a Murk production from Oscar G and Ralph Falcon under the guise of Intruder â€“ a guise this duo has not used since 1992. Any Murk production is a rare thing, and a record of this quality and breadth of appeal is perhaps even rarer. Effortlessly straddling the often tricky to navigate border between house and techno, it features one of the most hypnotically memorable vocals of the year courtesy of Jei.
Amame was the Essential New Tune on Pete Tongâ€™s last BBC Radio 1 show of 2011 and has been championed by the likes of Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Seth Troxler and Ricardo Villalobos, whose support ensured that all those loitering around the booths of DC10â€™s closing party and Fabricâ€™s birthday were enquiring of its story. Now the story can begin to be told… NYC GET READY!
