Murk is Miami-based DJ/producers Oscar G. and Ralph Falcon. Through the years, they have recorded under a variety of aliases, including Liberty City, Funky Green Dogs and Murk. This year alone, the men of Murk have topped the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart four times with a cover of Liberty City's "Some Lovin' " (featuring Kristine W.), "Rise Up," "Dark Beat" and "Alright." For "Murk," G. and Falcon serve up their signature mix of rugged underground beats, tribal percussion and mantra-like lyrical hooks. Providing the vocals are longtime Murk collaborators Tamara Wallace and "Oba" Frank Lords, among others. While there are a few tasty jams here (most notably "Believe" and "Afro-Cuba"), too often the sounds are derivative of past G. and Falcon glories. This duo is capable of more than that, right?—MP
