"One of the most important artists in electronic music right now” - Mixmag


Murlo is a Manchester-based producer, visual artist and DJ breathing brand new life into the dance music experience - with an immediately recognisable style that ties visual art and music together in unique, thrilling new ways.

Since emerging with a series of releases on acclaimed underground labels like Mixpak, Murlo quickly became one of the most popular artists on the club circuit, with an unmistakable style defined by vivid colours, addictive melodies and an imaginative touch that set him apart from his peers. As his profile rose, Murlo released some of his highest-profile projects: he scored a fashion show by Nasir Mazhar, soundtracked Stormzy’s film for Adidas, and dropped a now-legendary remix of Rihanna’s ‘Work’ that reached #8 worldwide on Hype Machine.

The start of 2019 saw Murlo release his long-awaited debut album Dolos, which doubles as both a 15-track album and Murlo’s first graphic novel - a 36-page story based around themes of escapism, solace and hiding from your past, all hand-drawn, written and painted by Murlo himself. As ever with Murlo, it finds him pushing the boundaries of both music and visual art in a way that’s both innovative and genuine.

Murlo’s multi-disciplinary approach also applies to the live arena, and this new audio-visual show represents a completely immersive new live experience, featuring music from the album, unreleased material and a handful of classics woven into a unique narrative, 100% hand-drawn and animated by Murlo in his signature Ghibli-esque style. The previous incarnation of Murlo's audio-visual sold out London's prestigious ICA and a subsequent UK tour - so this isn't one to be missed.
