Star Slinger’s refix of “Ready for the World”

27 Apr

Keeping in harmony with his recent production, Star Slinger is back with another tune to add to his repertoire of great remixes. This time, he put his unique spin on “Ready for the World” by How to Dress Well. The thing that has truly hooked me about Star Slinger’s style is his amazing ability to preserve the authenticity of a song while adding his elegant, refined sound. This Manchester magician deserves praise:

Star Slinger — “Close to Me” and Video

11 Apr

A favorite of ours here at Tunes, Star Slinger provides us with his visual representation of “Close to Me”, his collaboration with producer Teams. Unlike his euphoric “Mornin’” video, this piece plays on the cautions and insecurities people have with strangers in a peculiar, clever way. It does this wonderful tune justice in perfectly fitting fashion, despite its pure oddness. Star Slinger and Teams’ recent team-up EP is up for download here. Give the video a look here.

Also, here’s Star Slinger’s remix of Alex Winston’s “Sister Wife,” in which I think our ever consistent producer does a wonderful job taking advantage of the song’s rich vocals and replacing the acoustic guitar with a relaxed synth and some nice punchy rhythms:

Childish Gambino — March releases

28 Mar


Early this month on the 8th, Donald Glover gave us his EP for free. If you haven’t heard it, I recommend it HIGHLY. Seriously, this release was absolute fire. His lyrics have reached new heights in word play and he has some beautifully structured melodies as well. Download the EP for free at the link below:

We’ve already heard the banger “Freaks & Geeks,” (along with the Star Slinger remix), but besides that, this EP gives us 4 additional songs which all are insane. My favorite happens to be the final track, “Not Going Back.”

Well, in addition to this amazing EP, Glover has just released a single entitled “The Longest Text Message.” According to his twitter, this song was written and recorded during a drunken Thanksgiving night. Props to him because this song is fantastic. Download it HERE.

Star Slinger’s new-ish video

28 Feb

A week or so ago, Star Slinger unveiled a very cool and very trippy video to his single “Mornin’.”

Each part of this project intrigues me. I love laid back hip hop productions, but this one in particular has a heavy disco influence. This just makes for an absolute groove bomb. And, aside from the actual song, the video is very simple, yet creative, with really nice post-production effects. Check it out below

And speaking of trip hop and crazy music videos, I just can’t help but throw this video into this post…it’s just too great. Blockhead never ceases to amaze me
