Up-and-coming UK producer Star Slinger brings his surreal yet muscular electronic landscapes to our dancefloor.
Star Slinger is an Electronic project created by Nottinghamshire born Darren Williams. It all started in April 2010 when he re-ignited his love for record-shopping in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The name Star Slinger was born when he sampled BT Express’ instrumental B Side “Cowboy Dancer”.
He often names his creations with word association towards the sample he uses. Star Slinger is a dancefloor maestro who is also in demand with the indie community. His collaboration with ambient producer Teams (Knoxville, TN) was released on buzz label Mexican Summer. Small Black championed his remix of their song “Photojournalist”, and the blogosphere championed his unofficial remix of Deerhunter’s “Helicopter” .
He has since been approached for official remix work from some of his longtime favorite bands, including Broken Social Scene, The Morning Benders, and The Go! Team. Pitchfork writes: “Williams’ style combines the hyper soul sampling of Kanye West or Dipset producers Heatmakerz with a bubbling psychedelia reminiscent of J Dilla’s spacier moments. In his hands, Deerhunter’s 1960s-style lullaby “Helicopter” turns into the type of sliced-up head-nodder that Prefuse 73 used to offer.”
