Over a decade and a half of drum&bass in Belgium. Gone from throwing small bashes to rocking every major festival in the country several times over.
Running Jungle Fever (national radio Studio Brussel – Mondays) on a weekly basis for 4 years straight. Since the show stopped he’s been a regular guestmixer for Switch and he gathered the number one spot as most popular Monthly Playground Mix. As of September 2011 he’s back on national radio with his own show called “Murdock”, dropping the very best in dubstep and drum&bass (and beyond!) every Friday night from 11pm to midnight, mixing and presenting, and getting listeners ready for the weekend.
Murdock released the mix-cd ‘Jungle Fever Vol 1’ in Dec ’09, which was immediately sold out, and was followed by Vol 2 in Dec ’10 which flew off the shelves just the same. He compiled big tunes by friends like Sigma, Camo&Krooked, Total Science, Danny Byrd, Trei, Crystal Clear and many more to form the ultimate homegrown drum&bass mix series. Vol 1 contained 3 tracks he produced with boy wonder Netsky. April 2012 saw the release of ‘Off The Radar’, a unique project for which Murdock invited top notch produces to put their twist on Belgian dance classics. Eptic, Blame, Fred V & Grafix, Crystal Clear, Netsky, Break, Marky & SPY and many more contributed to this mix-cd and compilation.
He launched Radar Records in March ’10 with Netsky’s ‘Your Way’/’Daydreaming’ 12″ selling like hot cakes. That 12″ was succeeded by a number of releases in the Radar Remix series, which sees a number of classic Belgian dance tracks remixed by the drum&bass greats. These have gained support by London Electricity, Andy C, Danny Byrd, A.I., Slum Dogs, Total Science and UKF.
In 2011, Murdock released the first EP on his new Broken Music label, which sets out to release electronic music by Belgian producers, transcending all genre boundaries. So far, releases has come from the hands of Requake & Badklaat, Brownz, Bloodfire, Syndaesia, CJ Bolland and Le Cousin, and remixes by Science, BunZero and Metrobox.
Currently, Murdock is spending time in the studio. The collaborations with Netsky, ‘Shut Mouth’ and ‘Hooked On You’ have started to live their own live on the net, while his work with other collaborators is slowly starting to see the light of day. The most recent was his remix of Zolex’ trance-classic ‘Time Modulator’ on the Off The Radar CD.
Murdock is the biggest promotor of dubstep and drum&bass parties in Belgium, turning Breakdown, Radar and Rampage into the leading events of the country and spreading his fame far across the borders. The first Rampage party at Lotto Arena, in collaboration with internationally reknowned brand UKF, drew 6000 people and goes down as the biggest dubstep and drum&bass event in the country and even Europe.
He rocks the biggest summer festivals like Dour (10 times), 10 Days Off, Tomorrowland, Pukkelpop and Laundry Day on a yearly basis, regularly turning up the heat on 10000+ crowds. 2011’s Laundry Day saw him take it to the main stage with Netsky and Jenna G, delivering a much-talked about performance in front of 35.000 people.
Murdock spent time abroad rocking Capetown, Buenos Aires, London, Barcelona and more, and has played alongside all the greats, including Doctor P, Camo&Krooked, Chase&Status, Andy C, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Pendulum and Sub Focus on several occassions.
