After an awesome night of heads down house and techno with Darius Bassiray in early September, Minimal Wage is back again in October, this time teaming up with the crew at Murmur to bring you a night of all round house music fun.
This time round, we have resident Sydney-sider and all round dope cat MURAT KILIC joining us to show Auckland what he’s got.
The man behind the famous (or infamous) Spice Cellar After Hours venue in Sydney, as well as the Reckless Republic touring brand which has seen the likes of Motor City Drum Ensemble and The Revenge grace the Sydney scene at there revered ‘Spice Afloat’ New Years Day party, we decided it was about time he crossed the ditch and checked out Auckland’s very own ‘infamous’ underground club!
Featuring the local talents of:

The Lowdown on MURAT KILIC (Reckless Republic, Spice Cellar, Sydney)

Hailing from Sydney, Australia and raised by strict Turkish parents, Murat’s early experience of dance music was strictly from the dance floor. This club habit soon turned in to an addiction of buying 12 inch records which is now an extensive vinyl library. Since then Murat has come a long way in establishing his career as a serious player on the underground music scene globally, with regular appearances at some of the world’s top clubs and production skills that are being sought after from many forward thinking record labels.
As a DJ, Murat is steadfast with over 10 years experience always armed with fresh music. He has been avidly collecting vinyl since his early teens, but is no stranger to technology performing with Traktor, midi controllers and CDJs as required. His sets are creative and unique, smoothly genre crossing between deep house, techno and disco. In the last few years, Murat has had played in some of the noteworthy clubs around the world including Watergate Berlin, Electric Pickle Miami, the End London and further afield at Burning Man in the USA and Sunrise in Salvador, Brazil. With valuable deck time through his 5 year residency at Sydney institution SPICE, his sets cater for the chin strokers and frivolous partygoers alike.
“At the end of the day, it is all about educating the crowd without boring them – teaching people to appreciate new music, whilst still getting them to dance themselves to oblivion”.
Since 2008, Murat Kilic has had a steady schedule of music being released on a variety of labels across the Tech House, Deep Houseand Techno genres. Starting with a succession of remixes on Tech House imprint BEEF Records in 2008, Murat followed these up with an EPfor Oliver Koletzki’s Berlin based Stil Vor Talent which helped establish his reputation as someone to watch. Since then Murat has had a follow up release on Stil Vor Talent and a string of remixes racking up plays from the likes of Joris Voorn, Inland Knights and MANDY. Murat’s remixes are also defined and noteworthy with releases labels like Stil Vor Talent, BEEF records, Stereo Seven, Lost My Dog,Kaato, Subsonic, Long Distance and Tribal Vision. Murat’s most recent remix for Lost My Dog Records went as high #46 on the Beatport Deep House charts.
Murat now spends a lot of his time travelling across countries playing and listening to electronic music in many clubs and festivals around the globe. He also maintains a healthy work schedule in his home city Sydney, where he runs the successful Reckless Republic – touring agency, event promoter and record label.
