Murr is known for combining ambient fuzz and electronic beats into a whirlwind of melodies laced together with a chill, minimal heartbeat. Nicholas Murray is a Barbados-born, award-winning electronic producer, composer and musician who has been making music since 1992. He started out making audio loops from community radio shows with two rickety tape decks and his first project was with the underground hip hop legend, Da Grass Roots – which he produced from 1993-2000. Murr is best known as the co-founder of the long-standing politically-charged minimal project, LAL Forest.
Murr has produced a multitude of singles and six albums, ranging from Thunderheist to Luanda Jones. Always scoring projects in film and theatre, he has worked with a number of labels for himself and others, including PTR, DNH, Kuji, 530 Techno and New Kanada. In touring 10 countries, 3 continents, Pakistan and the Caribbean, Murr has been shortlisted for numerous international awards and has graced the pages – and the covers of – the Source, Rap Pages, NOW Toronto, the Globe and Mail, Flux FM, and more.
He's opened for Ice Cube and played the legendary Berlin nightclub, Berghain. Murr is currently working on a new audio-visual project featuring singer Rosina Kazi and music video producer C. Hudson Hwang called Figure 2.3.5. He lives in Toronto.
