dj sharda murlo

If you checked out Murlo’s recent contribution to Truants’ “Functions of the Now” mix series (or any of his other recent mixes), you’re privy to the London-based producer’s body moving, eclectic mixing style. Murlo operates in a number of unique spheres in both his production and DJ work, placing soca’s bright, airy melodies across grime’s spacious infrastructure and utilizing American hip hop and R&B to tie the whole affair down. Never one to hide away DJ secrets, he recently let loose a sublime blend of Kevin Gates’ “Arms of a Stranger” and Meleka’s “Go”, superimposing the latter’s aching vocals over the former’s (S1 produced) trance-informed melodies. The blend is a wonderful DJ tool and elicits quite a few feels as an original in and of itself. It’s also free so give it a listen below and jumpstart those creative engines.
