Edit Murphy - Brooklyn Nights EP (SNM 024)

Returning to the scene with his sleek new realease "Brooklyn Nights" is California based, Edit Murphy. Release on label Smoke N Mirrors this four track EP delivers in full with two original productions and two remarkable remixes from the likes of Pillow Talk and Melbourne's own Fantastic Man (aka Mic Newman).

A1 - The opening track on this release is the Pillow Talk remix of Need You. This production is full of autotune goodness. Giving off that late 90's R&B type vibe that Pillow Talk is known for, Need You features a luscious and drawn out bassline, creating a silky smooth groove throughout.

A2 - Edit Murphy comes at you with the Need You original which provides a much deeper tone, to my personal preference. Limiting the vocals, compared to the remix, the production is simple and effective. This is my pick of the release.

B1 - On the flip side we have the remix to the title track Brooklyn Nights by Fantastic Man. Getting groovy with great use of pads to create a bubbly atmospheric tone to the track. Simple use of drawn out synths are used to great effect.

B2 - The title track Brooklyn Nights provides us with a more upbeat track to get you in the mood. Heavy use of highs and a prominent clap keep the rhythm strong. A good way to bring up the vibe into those peak time tunes.

Get your hands on a copy of this record at the following stores, and follow Edit Murphy on Soundcloud (I hear there may be a new Motown Edits release coming in the near future):
