James Murphy Returns to the MID

January 17, 2013

Who’s ready to get funky? Friday, January 25th, will be a very special edition of MAYHEM at the MID – featuring the return of musician, producer, DJ, and co-founder of dance-punk label DFA Records – James Murphy! Grab your tickets now, right here.

His most well-known musical project is LCD Soundsystem, which first gained attention with its first single, “Losing My Edge”, in 2002 before releasing their eponymous debut album, LCD Soundsystem, in February 2005 to critical acclaim and top 20 success in the UK. Long a fixture of the downtown NYC music scene, Murphy co-founded the DFA label, which released the LCD Soundsystem catalogue. The label’s whose current roster includes The Rapture, Holy Ghost!, YACHT, the Juan Maclean, Planningtorock and more. Murphy continues to operate out of DFA’s West Village NYC offices, both as a principal in the label and as a producer/remixer at his infamous Plantain studios. A slightly different direction than LCD Soundsystem – his soothing, disco-infused DJ sets captivate crowds across the globe with Murphy’s warm, groovy, mid-tempo sound that is filled with soulful vocals. From disco to funk, from house to soul, indie to dance – one thing to be sure is that this is a DJ set you don’t want to miss!
