Ziga Murko

Glow

RX:TX

Released: 16th October 2015 | 7 track jazz rap/hip-hop ep

Murko's Glow radiates the warmth of a smoky past; the noise and distortion of magnetic tapes and dusty record needles; soul, jazz and hip hop fragments brewed in a distinct lo-fi blend … The EP is a jazz musician's hommage to (and an archaeology of) the slow soul jam era of the 70s and 80s. At the same time it is also an anachronistic production tools workout and a jazzy tribute (co)created with VCRs, cassette decks and MPCs.

All hail the hiss!

Glow is available in a 4-track 7'' vinyl option and in an extended digital format (EP).

Over the last few years, the young jazz cat Žiga Murko has been making moves for a minute. He made his name as a trombonist who led his own jazz bands and collaborated with jazz legends. But recently he picked up an SP-404 and an MPC 2000 so the trombone and jazz ensembles had to give way to his new preoccupation; Murko started tapping beats and ever since he's not stopped creating lo-fi, lo-down, slow and gritty jams. In the short period of two years he's appeared on labels from Anchorage to Slovenia and back to LA, Munich and Canada and created an impressive collection of EPs and (mini) albums.
