Star Slinger - Take This Up Oh ye mighty Star Slinger how does one man manage to craft such truly scrumptious tracks. Can we please work together on a project soon. Lets bring Jet Jam to Toronto.
Waking up to a new Star Slinger track to listen to is like waking up on Christmas Day to open presents. UK's producer and DJ born Darren Williams has ceased to release a track that isn't an instant hit. Based in Manchester, England, Williams brings a unique aura to electronic with a less invasive feel than a lot of what we're hearing as of late. Pitchfork has a great way of describing the Star Slinger vibe: "Combining the hyper soul sampling of Kanye West or Dipset producers Heatmakerz with a bubbling [...]

Immense remix this one by Star Slinger for Hundred Waters "Thistle." If there is something that makes me happy today is this beautiful and honest track.

Providing us with yet another excellent remix, Darren Williams, aka Star Slinger, takes Jessie Ware's ballad "Wildest Moments" and turns it into a deep, sexy hip hop influenced track.

Influenced by J Dilla, Daft Punk, Armand Van Helden, & Pete Heller, this Manchester artist, has the ability to transform original tones into a completely different mood. He will be playing at this weekend at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL, sharing the [...]

I try not to post tracks which I assume everyone has already heard; that's the problem with being out of the scene for a good month. I'll let this one pass. Anyway for anyone who hasn't heard this great remix from Star Slinger of talented pop artist Jessie Ware then you're in for a treat.
Purity Ring appeared on the scene in early 2011 with their single, “Ungirthed,” a track oozing with chopped and screwed qualities reminiscent of electro-wizard Star Slinger . About one minute into the track, we hear the voice of Megan James, bringing an oblique sense of intimacy to Corin Roddick's otherwise anonymous and vast track. She dizzyingly repeats “Teeth clicking/ears ringing” so much that the words feel empty, functioning as nothing more than sound. Just glancing at the tracklist for Shrines gives the impression of [...]
I don't know about you, but it has been one heck of a long workweek for me, so I decided to build a work playlist that has helped me (and will hopefully help you) take the edge off just in time for the weekend. Whether you work the graveyard shift, early mornings or somewhere in between, you're here because you love music. Students and the unemployed are welcome here too. The Friday Five is for anyone who has been shouldering weight this week. It's time to shake it off. I led off with "Cannons" because Youth Lagoon is a [...]
Just when you thought Lana Del Rey's "Video Games" had reached critical mass Orlando producer Luminary Youth drops a fresh sample giving it a rebirth. File this guy next to Clams Casino, Star Slinger, and your other favorite distorted, choppy instrumental hip-hop producers. If you're into this track you'll dig his newly released Unwritten Future [...]
