It is rare to come across releases like this one we’re about to announce. Žiga Murko is an underground artist and talented musician who takes his craft very seriously. A trombonist, composer, producer like the world has never seen before. From the smooth and mellow rhythms of old jazz parlours to twisted and exotic electronic beats, his music was born to entrance, to pull you out of the ordinary confines of reality straight into a world of fluttering electronica birds and more. His latest release doesn’t come easy, one hour of past, present and future fables, myths, facts, legends and secrets revealed for the first time ever in what he calls: The Purple Room. Stream here:
