‘Sizzled Sally’ has caused many a storm on dancefloors this summer, an unforgettable treat of a record from the refreshing palette of Mic Newman. Title track ‘Sizzled Sally’ is the most requested and hyped murmur release to date, the sound of the past meeting the present in an original and winning recipe. Slices of piano and rapturous vocal screams unite in a sharp evocative atmosphere, forming the heart of the track that stays with you long after the lights come up. B side ‘5 O’Clock’ is another late night burner, stocked with an arsenal of funk and fired out with great velocity while the luscious tones of ‘Elephante’ will be released on digital format only. Mic Newman spent his formative years on an olive grove in Australia but has turned his attention to studio spaces over the past 5 years, honing the skills that have begun to be seized upon by a string of notable artists, completing remixes for Mason, Chicken Lips, Dirty South, and Booka Shade and solo releases for Get Physical, 8Bit, Dirt Crew and now for our own murmur family.
Many believe Mic Newman's swift rise to prominence to be more remarkable than the day it rained small fish in Denmark, but despite his simple past, Mic's musical voice is layered with innovation and quirk, culminating in a radical sound, one that stands out from the clichéd noise. Phrases like ‘technical wizard’ and ‘emphatic attention to detail’ resonate in conversations among his contemporaries, referencing Mic’s production proficiency and favourable reputation among his peers.
Innovative, unquestionably talented and attitudinally sound – Mic Newman is one wholesome package soon to be distributed worldwide on murmur.
