Review: Star Slinger live at The Echo

October 2nd, 2012 by | Concert/Festival Review, Electronic Dance Music |

Last Friday night I won tickets to see UK beatsmith Star Slinger at The Echo courtesy of Thrillcall. His live sets occupy some interesting area between UK electronic and American hip-hop, where his own intricate productions sounded right at home alongside Juicy J’s “Who Da Neighbors”. His set consisted of a slew of his intricate remixes including his “We Found Love” Rhianna remix and his Hundred Waters “Thistle” remix as well as his own original productions, “Chain Dumbin” with a verse from Juicy J and his latest release “Ladies In The Back” featuring Teki Latex.

I highly recommend seeing Star Slinger live as he got all the hipster kids at The Echo dancing.

Stream his three latest releases below.

Remix Battle: Rihanna “We Found Love” *Eos vs Star Slinger

January 19th, 2012 by | Dance, Dubstep, Remix, Remix Battle |

Ok peoples, here’s another edition of Remix Battle, this time we are taking the dumb Rihanna song “We Found Love”.When she keeps singing “We found a love in a hopeless place…” I just keep thinking she found love in a jail, DMV, funeral, somewhere that might give you the feeling it’s hopeless. I just don’t get finding loving in a hopeless place, it’s so stupid!

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my rant on Rihanna and her silly lyrics. Now let’s get to two remixes that have very different sounds. (more…)

Star Slinger update *2 new songs featuring Reggie B, Shear-Jashub and Diplo

November 23rd, 2011 by | Remix |

Two new songs that dropped within the last week or so that involve up-and-comer Star Slinger slanging dope instrumentals with solidly built production from the lyricism to the beats. The first song is a remix to a electronic remix to an R&B original. First Star Slinger remixed Reggie B‘s “Dumbin'” and then Diplo remixed that.

The next Star Slinger remix is to the hip-hop song “Anything” by Shear-Jashub. Update: Star Slinger has informed us that Shear-Jashub actually rapped over an old beat of his. Star Slinger did not remix this but his production is featured on the majority of the track. Still, this is a bonified 5-star in my book and a must-download!

By the way, here’s the original remix Star Slinger did to the Reggie B “Dumbin'” song. It’s solid but I like what Diplo adds to it.

Washed Out – Eyes Be Closed (Star Slinger Remix)

July 29th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

In the DJ game, there is no one who can touch UK DJ/producer Star Slinger. He has carved out his own path, and there is absolutely nobody near him in terms of combining originality, creativity, and fat beats. His latest track, a remix to Washed Out’s “Eyes be Closed” transforms the mellow indie campfire swaying into a breakbeat dance track.

Right now, Star Slinger stays slaying dance-floors overseas in Europe, but rumor has it that he’ll be touring the US in the late fall/early winter. Follow him on Twitter for updates. If he comes to your city, go catch him live. I promise, you’ve never heard anything like this dude.

Rizzle Kicks – Down With The Trumpets (Star Slinger Remix)

June 10th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Buying music is so out these days, and UK DJ/Producer Star Slinger is taking advantage. He’s constantly releasing free music on his soundcloud page of originals and remixes, and it’s all awesome. Consequently, Star Slinger is gaining tons of new followers and building a super loyal fan base. His latest work is a remix of UK hip-hop group Rizzle Kicks’ track “Down with the Trumpets.” I know absolutely nothing about Rizzle Kicks, but on the remix, Star Slinger builds a hot beat with an original latin feel to it, and creates a serious jam! I had no idea the UK could be so based.

Everything that Star Slinger touches turns to gold, so do yourself a favor and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. He’s coming back across the pond for a national US tour which should be huge. The based dance party is coming. Be there.

Star Slinger – Rogue Cho Pa (EP)

May 29th, 2011 by | Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Star Slinger, a producer/DJ out of the UK, makes a new breed of hip-hop/electronic/dance jams. His music is super funky, full of tons of layers and nuances, and uses samples in ways no one else is. His music will get you dancing, his music will get your head nodding, and his music is definitely a must listen.

He recently dropped the Rogue Cho Pa EP, which is apparently full of stuff Star Slinger had “left lying around.” If the stuff that he has lying around is this awesome, I can’t wait to hear what else he has. The 6 song EP takes you on a journey through chilled out, down-tempo stuff, to more upbeat dance-party jams. The tracks are instrumental for the post part, with samples thrown in, but the songs are so interesting that they don’t feel like instrumentals.

Follow Star Slinger on Twitter and Facebook, and head over to his soundcloud where he has tons of other instrumentals and sick remixes available for free download.

Because we love Childish Gambino so much on this blog, check out Star Slinger’s remix to “Freaks and Geeks”

Star Slinger ft. Kanye West – Elizabeth Fraser

January 4th, 2011 by | Mashup, Remix |

Laid-back mashup/remix that just sounds like music you would hear on the radio 5-10 years from now. Very relaxing song much like being on vacation (as I am). Futuristic sounding with one of my favorite Kanye songs in the lyrics. Thanks to Ohh!SoFamous! for sending us this.
