In the past year, DJ and producer Star Slinger has been exhilarating the UK with his ultra-slick remixes inspired by house music, Motown and Southern soul, and has recently been crossing over to audiences in the States. He released his debut single, “Dumbin’”, in September with record label Green Label Sound.
The track captures his ability to collaborate with singer Reggie B, with whom he creates a perfect blend of soulful heartache synthesized with lush melody. He also has an 11-track LP, Volume 1, which feels like the hip-hop/disco soundtrack you always wished existed. He is excellent at smoothing a beat to a chorus and his delivery isn’t as turbulent as DJs such as Girl Talk.
Star Slinger also recently remixed Trombone Shorty’s “Do To Me” from his new album For True. This Saturday, he’ll be performing at One Eyed Jacks with electro/hip-hop experimentalists Shigeto and Mux Mool opening. OffBeat‘s got a pair of tickets, and we’re giving them away to whoever fills out the form below with the best suggestion for another local song for Star Slinger to remix.
