Muro

Real Name:
室田 隆義 Murota Takayoshi
Profile:
Japanese hip-hop producer, remixer, DJ, beat digger.

Born: 25 March 1970 in Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.

Takayoshi Murota, better known as Muro, is well known for his crate digging for old records in order to (re)create new ones. Also known for having released very many 'mixtapes' on various formats, using sections and breaks from funk, soul, disco, and very many other sounds, all done in creative and interesting ways.

When DJing live, Muro also is known for often doing 7"/45-only DJ sets, playing anything and everything; from disco to boogie to funk to soul.

He also releases lots of limited edition vinyl releases, again often on 7"/45 format, across a great deal of micro labels, and pressed in highly limited amounts – much like the many DJ mixes he releases.
