Those of you that listened to Northern late nineties phenomenon Bassline or ’Niche’ will remember the name ‘Murkz’ as a key player as an MC, Producer & DJ within the scene. Before he ever touched the 4x4 however Murkz was one of Manchester’s biggest underground Grime artists. Originally named the ‘Murk Don’ early nineties babies will remember the classic send for ’24K’ ’Sum Fake Gold From Spain’ which solidified his reputation as a self entitled ‘Bar Machine’.
It has been a few years since we have heard anything from the ‘Manny Man’ however out of the blue a new Grime Freestyle appeared on ‘Complex UK’ yesterday with a video to boot. Going in over the classic ‘Davinche’ instrumental ‘Eyes On You’ Murkz has come back like he never left repping Manchester to the fullest degree. Talking throughout the track about his career from the start to the current he shows us why he was and is still a problem for the scene. We look forward to hearing more from Murkz in the future.
Big up Murkz.
