Star Slinger – Mornin’

It’s official: this guy is my new favorite mixmaster. There’s something about what he is doing that I just can’t get enough of. His mixing style reminds me a lot of Z-trip, an LA-based DJ whose beats I fell in love with the moment I heard him sample Dolly Parton. Star Slinger, a Manchester-based producer better known as Darren Williams to his friends, uses incredibly diverse samples as well. I’ve heard snippets of everything from soul to 80s rock, from Deerhunter to Nicki Minaj to Musical Youth. The Fader says this Manchester-based producer “makes dense, weird music that’s fun and accessible beats that bare scrutiny and tear the whole fuckin’ club up.” I wholeheartedly agree.

This is the first track off his debut album and it comes with a rad accompanying video. The whole album’s available for download at his Bandcamp page and I suggest you go buy it immediately so you can chair dance the afternoon away!
