UPGRAYEDD SMURPHY

DJ Smurphy / Professor Jessica

   “ Prolific and unpredictable, Upgrayedd Smurphy draws on turbulent urban atmospheres and her own emotional inner space within them to make a sprawling, textured techno coursing with bass, rage and serenity.

    While she played on Casios and turntables as a kid and later joined synthpunk band Post-Pastel and acid-house-pop group Supermad, Smurphy never expected herself to DJ massive #CDMX parties, propelled by the excitement of live performance. As DJ Smurphy, her off-kilter, anti-genre sound brought her into a N.A.A.F.I’s community of electronic boundary pushers and trend transformers – she worked with producers Dr. Dude and Lao before taking over the production reigns completely on album #GEMINISS. With her label R-CH-V she’s able to release music as authentically as possible, without playing into industry constraints or stereotypes. Her album A Shapeless Pool of Lovely Pale Colours Suspended in The Darkness manifests its name and more – speedy atmospheric patterns elevated by echoing synth lines and vocals. She recently spent time living in south Los Angeles, a perception-altering experience that’s heightened the intensity of her music and inspired Upgrayedd Smurphy, an enhanced name to match a sound she’s upgraded in depth and scope – with HYPNOSYS, she intertwines wide awake external urban chaos with personal subconscious complexities.”
