Prior to starting the DFA label with production partner Tim Goldsworthy, James Murphy had played in indie rock bands -- Pony, Speedking -- and produced, engineered, and mixed records by Six Finger Satellite, Turing Machine, Les Savy Fav, and the pre-DFA Rapture. In addition to releasing routinely well-received material as/with LCD Soundsystem (which featured him on virtually every instrument while also juggling production, songwriting, and vocal duties), Murphy established himself as a club DJ, recognized by a volume (the 36th) in the Fabriclive mix CD series. Put together with LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney, it was released in late 2007. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
