“Metro” starts off with a chugging kick drum nestled underneath the steady pulse of gradating synthstabs.
Smooth vocals croon and shimmer with effects adding a splash of soul to Edit’s house-flavored
“California Love” is complete with funk licks and a punchy disco bassline that give a sensual stride with a heavy dose of playful percussion and vocals that make this track a perfect peaktime jam.
“Steppin” rounds out the release and shines with synth flares and a thick, funky bassline that call back to ‘80s electro-funk. Murphy’s take on retro-futurism is anything but trite, bringing the best out of nostalgia with fresh, feel good vibes.
Edit Murphy emerged in October 2011 with his Motown Edits EP, reworked tracks from a handful of originators of Motor City soul, including Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers. The release quickly gained attention all over the Internet, with support from WOLF Music, Space Ranger, Soul Clap and equally mysterious edit-maestros, Tiger & Woods. Edit’s Tracks have appeared in the iconic Om Lounge series, his first single “Need You” was followed up by solid the “Brookly Nights EP” in September of 2012.
Body Language stopped by the Let Em In Music Studio to record two stripped down versions of ’I’m a Mess’ and ‘Charm’ (from their upcoming Grammar LP) for The Wild Honey Pie. The recordings came out charming, captivating, passionate and beautiful. Check out the full write up here and the videos below.

In “Mood Swings” EP, Miguel Migs and Shades Of Gray have come together to deliver a fine Deep House affair drenched in rich textures, subtle undertones and moody melodies. Aspects of both classic and modern deep house intertwine expertly on these four tracks, creating edge and dynamism that is dance-floor ready.
The release starts off strong with “Create a Mood,” a truly deep groover of unparalleled freshness. With richly textured vocals, zippy synth stabs, lush layers, and tightly woven percussion, this track creates a mood of total allure and classic deep house appeal. “Down Underground” brings the late-night party vibes with a thick, sinister bass-line and a hypnotic vocal taking you deeper underground and telling you to dance ’til dawn.
“Let Me” is a feel-good moody jam with a thick, chunky bass-line, sparkling synths, hearty handclaps and an undeniable female voice that teases: “let me”. The “Salty Dub” channels more bounce with extra layers of throw back synth chords and a double-boost of boogie.
Smoke N’ Mirrors is proud to present, alongside our Inside/Out Winter Music Conference Party, a compilation featuring the best of the label including tracks from Crazy P, Death on the Balcony, Edit Murphy, Thugfucker, and more.
