House veteran Maurice Fulton unveiled another great remix, this time of Róisín Murphy‘s “House Of Glass”. The original track is taken from her recent album “Hairless Toys”. As she said: “For me ‘House Of Glass’ has special resonance as it’s autobiographical, about my time in Sheffield. So I was extremely happy when one of my favourite producers, Maurice Fulton, wanted to do a mix of it. I simply love it.” The accompanying video is directed by Róisín Murphy herself.

The prolific production partnerships of Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye, Timo Maas & James Teej and the solo force of Citizenn take Róisín Murphy’s ‘Jealousy’ to new levels with fresh remixes of the smash single released earlier this year.
“Jealousy is a thunderous house vamp over the course of which Róisín gradually transforms from carefree lover to possessive bunny-boiler, her growing mania matched by the music’s unstoppable momentum. Pop-house pups take note: this is how it’s done.” The Guardian newspaper review, March 2015
Róisín Murphy’s compelling vocals are set in new bright landscapes by disco dons Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye, London retro-futurist Citizenn hot of the heels of his debut album on Crosstown Rebels and Timo Maas & James Teej. Co-written and produced by the great Sheffield bastion of house, The Crooked Man AKA DJ Parrot, formally of Sweet Exorcist (Warp) and All Seeing I (FFRR).

The Irish singer-songwriter originally broke into the charts as the frontwoman for Moloko, delivering music that was leftfield electronic and pop-orientated. Her consequent output, three stunning solo albums, and Mi Senti a beautiful Italian language EP with The Vinyl Factory alongside guest vocal presence on labels like Hot Creations and Permanent Vacation have ensured Róisín’s enduring legacy and constant evolution as an artist.

Irish dance-pop queen Róisín Murphy has shared the self-directed video for “Evil Eyes”, the latest single off her new album “Hairless Toys”, out now via Play It Again. “I find it interesting to create videos that don’t try to look like pop videos at all. Hopefully, this will be a mysterious and disorientating experience for the viewer,” she says.

“It’s the story of an actress and a love affair. It’s about selling out, manipulation and exploitation within creative work and in a relationship. It’s ironic because as my own director I’m exploiting myself (if that’s possible) but I am manipulating you,” Róisín Murphy
Róisín Murphy delivers a one-off dance single for Crosstown Rebels.
“Although my album is a rather eclectic affair, this release for Crosstown is one for the purists. I have a deep love for house and disco so this 12″ is strictly for dancing to,” enthuses Roisin. ‘Jealousy’ is recorded specially for Crosstown Rebels and not included on Roisin’s forthcoming album. An unashamed slice of dance-floor hedonism from the acclaimed singer, featuring Roisin’s compelling vocals in both a house and disco workout.
Co-written and produced by the great unsung modern day house hero, The Crooked Man aka DJ Parrot, formally of Sweet Exorcist (Warp) and All Seeing I (FFRR), amongst many other aliases, he has been a bastion of the Sheffield sound since the late ’80’s.
“Parrot understands dancing music and he understands me. This is fast and furious; he says it’s roller-disco music. The backing track sounded so frantic, so evocative, the lyric wasn’t long coming to me. All I had to do was try to create a vocal as demented as the music!” Roisin Murphy
