International collective Physical Education and Murdocco have today released their new collaboration titled ‘El Memento’, from the sixth installment of Mixmasters Red.
I have always found Murdocco to have that unique sense of musicianship and an original vocal range. Now, hearing her collaborating with Physical Education, it all makes sense. Music meant for the world and broadcast without borders or reservations.
I also hear an expansion in the sound of both artists. That musical marriage that conflicts and coexists with beautiful rebellion. Decadence for the dancefloor.

About Physical Education, Murdocco & ‘El Momento’
Up next for the sixth instalment on Mixmasters Red is the international collective Physical Education. The group, founded in London by Luke Scheybeler and David Phillips, are now based in Barcelona, London, Paris and Prague. Physical Education are artists with true musicianship and a deep appreciation for the roots of house music. The collective includes producers, DJs, top session musicians, jazz artists and vocalists. It’s a real pleasure to have such exciting artists on the Mixmasters imprint.
The release was a standout submission in the Mixmasters ‘Get Signed Music’ competition, using the vocals of genre-defying singer-songwriter Murdocco. The Uruguayan artist was on a Mixmasters marketing retreat in the summer of 2022, taking the chance to work in the legendary Ibizan Metrica Studios recording her own original Spanish vocals.
Using the vocals in the competition, Physical Education wrote the track and recorded it at Physical Education’s “Mountain House” studio in Northern Catalonia in the Pyrenees, creating an atmospheric, latin-flavored, deep house epic. Latin percussion parts were recorded in New York City. Flamenco guitar was recorded in Tel Aviv, Israel. The flute was recorded in London. A demonstration of music transcending borders and bringing different artistic cultures together in one special record.
Murdocco was inspired by the idea of living in the present moment, in the now. That special moment when you look someone in the eyes and fall in love at first sight. It’s about being present in the moment; a moment you don’t want to end. That’s why “Quiero más” is central to the lyrics.
The end result is a deep soulful house record that takes you on a journey, the story of two people meeting, dancing and falling in love when their eyes meet across the dance-floor. A 12-minute Latin epic you won’t want to end.
