Starkey - Ear Drums And Black Holes
Starkey unlocks another selection of lip-smacking electro beats on his debut long-player for Planet Mu. The 15-track album packs in plenty of the grimey, low-slung grooves that listeners have come to expect from the Philadephia producer, whose futuristic sounds echo the likes of Joker, Jamie Vex'd and Rustie. The fluttering single 'Stars', which featuring an uplifting vocal turn by Anneka, is among the highlights, while the swaggering bounce of 'OK Luv', whiplash synths of 'Capsule' and stretched-out sci-fi funk of 'Neck Snap' also impress. This one is destined to gain heavy rotation over the summer months ahead.
