Miami United States
Murk’s Oscar G and Ralph Falcon discuss their Miami roots, their classic trademark sound and lasting influence on modern house music.
The great thing about the history of house music is that it’s full of big and little tales that are still waiting to be told. The saga of _(artist-name)Murk_ is such an untold one. Consisting of _(artist-name)Oscar ‘Oscar G’ Gaetan_ and _(artist-name)Ralph Falcon_, the Murk boys were operating out of Miami, Florida - not necessarily a hotbed of house music. A fact that redounded to their advantage when their first recording appeared on a scene that was heavily dominated by their peers from Detroit, Chicago and especially New York and New Jersey. Developing a trademark sound that included a deeper than deep and chunky bass, hypnotizing synth lines and male and female vocals that were lost in reverie, they sounded and still sound like no one else. Regardless of whether they are recording as Murk, _(artist-name)Liberty City_, _(artist-name)Funky Green Dogs_, _(artist-name)Intruder_, or any other of their myriad aliases, Oscar G’s and Ralph Falcon’s vast back catalogue includes several of the best house tracks the nineties have to offer, and despite their moniker tactics and apparent desire to stay out of the limelight as individuals, they are two of the genre’s cornerstones.
