BioWith already established origins in first industrial, then techno, Grey created the Murkbox moniker in 1996... The sound is essentially various forms of electronic experimentalism usually drenched in distortion. More often than not, Murkbox is beat oriented; overdriven electro, breakbeats, and glitch that is often peppered with classic horror and sci-fi samples. Murkbox also has forays into ambient noisescapes well illustrated by recent Bad Taste release Binary Drift. A blending of all these elements is the usual fare for a live Murkbox performance... Primary distribution of the the music has been handled by ..Bad Taste... However, in recent years there have also been associations with ..lokol.. as well as ..Hipnotik Records.. based in France... ..

Sounds Likenoisescapes, glitch & distorted breaks mixed with a myriad of samples pulled from horror and sci-fi flicks. rather than truly sounding dark, murkbox has more of an electro comic book feel. .. .... ...... ....
