Premiere: Ell Murphy x Mani Festo ‘Turning’

Ell Murphy and Mani Festo will release a new collaborative EP, ‘Turning’, via Murphy’s Jucey Tunes label this month. Listen to the title track below. 

Following recent collaborations with the likes of Stones Taro, TSHA and DJ Perception, Murphy links up with Club Glow co-founder Mani Festo, pairing her resonant vocals with banging two-step rhythms and jungle breaks across two tracks. 

Speaking about the title track, Murphy said: “It came together really quickly at the end of 2021. As soon as Nick (Mani Festo) sent me the instrumental, the vocal hook came to me almost instantly and the producer/vocalist dynamic flowed so easily. The song is about the dilemma of being in a situation with someone where the desire is strong, but it’s never gonna go to that next stage, and the feeling of needing to stop yourself falling any deeper before it becomes too late.”
