In anticipation of Edit Murphy‘s upcoming performance on the WIDE AWAKE Art Car at EDC Chicago on May 26th, we sat down with the Smoke N’ Mirrors rep for a chat about his new Metro EP, Deep Disco, and his thoughts about the first Electric Daisy Carnival in his hometown of Chicago. Additionally, we have a free download of his single, “Keni,” to hand over to you today. It’s a melodic tune brimming with ol’ fashioned feelgoodery, and now it’s yours for free. Read the interview below and make sure to catch Edit Murphy on the GDD™-hosted WIDE AWAKE Art Car in Chicago next Sunday, May 26th.
If Deep Disco is your thing then underground San Francisco label Smoke N’ Mirrors is something that should be on your radar. In addition to releasing the acclaimed When We Onfull length from Crazy P last year, the Om Records sub-label has also rounded up releases from solid talent like Edit Murphy, Ian Pooley, Body Language, and more. Today, Smoke N’ Mirrors released the second compilation in their Audio Illusions series, featuring 17 superb and smooth tracks — all of which I recommend investigating. Preview the entire compilation below and pick up the release on Beatport. Continue Reading

Last month, Geneva’s Edit Murphy put out an impressive release titled, Brooklyn Nights EP, on Om Records‘ underground House/Deep Disco sub-imprint, Smoke N’ Mirrors. The 4-track EP consists of two originals from Edit Murphy and two remixes from Fantastic Man and Pillowtalk (who are recently becoming one of my favorite acts at the moment). Furthering his relationship with the underground label, Edit Murphy put together a very solid House mixtape in honor of the EP, featuring a ton of amazing music I had never heard of. Always love that. Stream here and tracklist + download below.

• Pat Lok – No Shame (Goldroom Remix) A bottle rinses up on the shore. It is filled with euphoria, sunshine, and a crescendo from outer space. Our good buddy Josh (Goldroom) keeps pumping out instant classics that will make your soul glow.
• Luther Vandross – I Wonder (SAH Re-Froth) SAH was foraging in a long forgotten place between space and time and stubbled upon a funky ball of tits. He had the funk, and had to keep the funk alive. It’s the spawn of a new time where light up dance floors glisten off a tan butt poached up on a lengthy pair of stems.
“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”
