Murkage Dave: Keep Up The Bad Work on Thursday 10th October 2019

Leytonstone-born Murkage Dave’s debut album ‘Murkage Dave Changed My Life’ sees the singer returning home to East London to witness the changing landscape and gentrification. The experience inspired him to write a set of twelve “folk songs for the culture,” including existing singles ‘Put You On My Shoulders’, ‘You Always Ring Me When I’m Busy’ and ‘Magic Mission Deja Rinse’, as well as instant fan favourites ‘Keep Up The Bad Work’ and ‘Niggas Need Each Other’.

Written and recorded this year between London, Paris and Berlin, Dave spent the Summer with the sole aim of crafting a timeless LP, holing up in the studio with executive producer Cores and a cast of talented friends including Manga Saint Hilare, Star Slinger, Massappeals, Louis Don Dada, Sam Wise and Scally, all of whom contributed to the impressive collection.

As a singer and songwriter, Dave has crafted a versatile sound, rooted in a youth spent listening to garage and R&B, but also revealing formative years in Manchester absorbing The Smiths and Joy Division. It’s no surprise that his defiantly British sound is still attracting fans globally, and he’s collaborated with Mike Skinner, Jaykae, Skepta and French producer Hologram Lo, as well as reaching the ears of Pharrell Williams, Young Fathers, Iggy Pop and Beastie Boys member Mike D, all of which have supported the track on their radio shows.

Having cut his teeth as a club promoter, Murkage Dave is no stranger to the importance of live music and its connection to fans in real life environments. His debut headline show at Sebright Arms sold out within 24 hours prior to the release of the album, and tickets for his subsequent UK headline tour went even faster - eventually having to upgrade his London show to accommodate the overwhelming demand. As a previous collaborator of Mike Skinner’s, with their legendary TONGA events, he joined The Streets on tour across the UK and Europe at the beginning of the year.

‘Murkage Dave Changed My Life’ follows a two year run sparked by ‘Car Bomb’, which stood out from his ‘D.A.V.E Pt.1’ EP and took on a life of its own. Dave spent the time creating whenever he could, collaborating with singer Scally on side-project HALFBROTHER and releasing tracks with the likes of Jaykae - for the Skepta-produced ‘Every Country’ which has racked up over 2 million streams - and French superstar Nekfeu - earning a triple-platinum plaque for his contribution to ‘Cyborg’.

Since then Murkage Dave’s music has been supported at radio by the likes of Annie Mac, Toddla T, Jamz Supernova, DJ Target and MistaJam, as well as press coverage from Evening Standard, Guardian, HighSnobiety, Noisey, Mixmag, London In Stereo, Nation Of Billions, Trench Mag and more.
