Underground house music, tacos, and tequila.

That's what you'll find at Coyo Taco when Oscar G and the Murk Records crew take over the Wynwood taquería's secret bar for Murk Mondays.

“First, we ate there, which probably helped the matter,” Oscar jokes, explaining how he, Ralph Falcon, and Lazaro Casanova ended up choosing a Mexican restaurant for their party.

“I think more so than anything, we just really liked the place.”

After almost one year of planning and searching for a new weekly residency, the 305 house legend and his Murk homies finally found what they were looking for.

“When we saw the room, it seemed like the perfect size,” Oscar says.

“We love the concept. It's a small lounge behind a taco restaurant, and it has amazing sound,” which is provided by a Dynacord sound system straight outta Berlin, to be exact.

“You can't get it in the U.S. anymore, it's top notch,” brags the eatery's co-owner Sven Vogtland, AKA DJ Rude Boy Sven. “That's an attention factor for DJs because of the exclusivity of it.”

For Oscar, Ralph, and Lazaro, however, the decision wasn't based solely on the intimate size of the room and state-of-the-art acoustics.

Much like the Murk label itself, partying to underground house music at a Mexican restaurant on a Monday night is “completely off the beaten path,” O.G. says.

“And that connection with this place," he adds, “seemed appropriate for this party.”

Upcoming Events

Otherwise, the homies' plans are pretty loose. “We're just trying to do something where it feels like we're just hanging out with our friends. That's what we're aiming for. And you can grab tacos. That's a perk.”

And everyone's invited, old friends, new friends, even friendly strangers.

“There won't be any intimidating factors, like ropes and stuff. Just a DJ booth,” Oscar says.

"We want it to feel like a house party.”
