New Artist: Star Slinger

star slinger

I like songs that sound like your CD is skipping or there’s something fucked up with your ipod.  Star Slinger‘s remixes and originals are certainly not all like that but as soon as I heard his stuff I got really really wide-eyed jump-up-and-down excited.

Star Slinger is instrumental hip hop goodness, Manchester based Producer named Darren and  samples everything from child-fronted reggae to 80′s rock. His debut 11 track album is out now for free at www.starslinger.net. Best free thing I have gotten in awhileeee.

I usually recommend a few tracks to listen to if you’re first discovering an artist but not with this one, no, no go crazy. Really, go bananas. I love all of them. Here’s one of his remixes called Dutchie Courage:

Star Slinger – Dutchie Courage

Here’s the first track off of that album, called Mornin:

Star Slinger – Mornin’

And here’s Extra Time:
