WEEKEND MIX 4.29.11: STAR SLINGER

Star Slinger is a master of mixing samples and putting his own spin on new and old tracks. He describes his style as “…melodic, chopped up beats, with pitched up soul vocals sliced around complex drum machine patterns and swathes of vintage synths”.

A child of the technology age, you are more likely to see Star working a beat machine than turntables, but we can assure you, expect nothing less than FRESHNESS when you see him in the booth.

Star Slinger is constantly producing tracks and remixes for his fans on his website and other social networks. It seems like every day he posts a new remix and his dedication has definitely paid off. He’s performed in cities across the world including NYC, London, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Paris, Istanbul, Los Angeles, Stockholm, and many other locations across the world.

He also gained a lot of attention for his track Mornin’ as well as a lot of promotion by actor/comedian/musician Donold Glover. The highly regarded national UK newspaper, The Guardian named Star Slinger “best new act of the year by miles”.

In the following mix, Star lays down some on-the-fly beats, smooth R&B, classic Hip Hop tracks, some dance floor bangers, and more all of which will make your head nod, and show why you should keep your ear to the street for this cat. Enjoy.
