Sonny and Finn Murphy, the Leicester-based brothers behind Murphy’s Law, have spent over half a decade crafting an eclectic mix of House and Tech House music. Their groove and soul-infused creations defy genre pigeonholing and have gained recognition from various artists, including Jamie Jones and Joseph Capriati. Regular airplay on BBC Radio 1 and releases on respected labels like Ministry of Sound/Sony, Kaluki, Deeperfect, and Bamboleo further cement their standing in the industry.
The duo’s talents extend beyond production; they’ve performed at many high-profile events, including Joseph Capriati’s Metamorfosi on Amnesia Terrace in Ibiza. They’ve also made their mark on the UK festival circuit, and their Full House club events are a popular fixture in their hometown. Their remix of Christina Aguilera’s hit song “Ain’t No Other Man” has garnered significant attention, with support from Jamie Jones and other industry tastemakers. Their music-centric journey continues to evolve, with their dynamic sound and prodigious output capturing the attention of the global music scene.
After the immense success of their major label debut, ‘Ain’t No Other Man’, production powerhouse Murphy’s Law are back with their highly anticipated follow-up single ‘Need to Know’ on Ministry of Sound Recordings. You can download/stream it here: https://murphyslaw.lnk.to/NeedToKnow.
To mark their latest release, Finn and Sonny share some of their simply ‘Need To Know’ dancefloor weapons:
Maceo Plex – Frisky
This track is just effortlessly cool. The bassline is so funky, the vocal is trippy, and there is nothing else out there that sounds anything like it. Unreal.
Detroit Swindle – Unfinished Business
This track has been rinsed by us in closing sets. It’s got the perfect blend of charm and beefiness. It always goes off, and it proves just how insane Dam Swindle’s level of talent with production is.
Ammo Avenue – Lost Planet
What a tune. The first time we heard this, we were in Pacha watching Capriati and Carola b2b, and this tune was a real standout track from the night. Peak-time, tough, gritty drums and bass, a real haunting synth line, and simple hypnotic vocals are solid.
Fletch – Deeper
Fletch is an amazing producer, and this is by far our favourite track from him so far. This track is proof you don’t need to use a lot of a sample to create something special. The simplicity and groove of this track are what make it so great. So laidback it’s horizontal.
Jezen – Things You Know (Murphy’s Law remix)
One of the first remixes we ever did. We have always been so picky with what we remix, but this track had so many amazing layers to work with. The remix is still one of our favourite tunes we have made to date, and it is always a solid party starter.
Copasetic – People (Francesco Squillante Remix)
It’s such a cool track. The groove is so tight on it. Great for the moody club environments where you want to set the tone from the off and let people know you aren’t playing around.
Jazzy – Lonely (Underground Goodie Mix)
This tune is so simple but so groovy. The bassline paired with the classic m1 organ just works so well and is guaranteed to be stuck in your head for days. Couple that with some seriously skippy, dusty, old-school drums and you’ve got a banger on your hands.
Pepe Mateos – The Blues House
Absolute groover. Always goes down well in warm-up sets or when the sun is shining. It brings back fond music on memories from watching Marco destroy the amnesia terrace as the sun pokes its head through the glass roof, and you question why the hell you’re still out partying and have missed breakfast.
Skyy – Here’s To You
Pure class. The funk on this record makes you pull a proper stank face every time it plays. It’s very rare you’re in an environment where it’s fitting to drop this, but when you do, it creates a seriously special moment. Strictly the last song of the night vibes when the lights have just been turned on, and people are getting ready to leave.
Murphy’s Law – Ain’t No Other Man
It’s been played in pretty much every set of ours for the past year and a half. It’s still not boring to play. We will never get bored of the look on people’s faces when they first recognise the horns coming through!
