Philly producer Starkey forges ahead in the sonic space race with his new, sci-fi inspired EP. Space Traitor Vol 2 is the sequel to 2010’s Vol 1 and looks certain to further cement Starkey as one of the most forward-thinking artists in post-dubstep, bass-driven music. Space Traitor Vol 2 is comprised of six new tracks of angular, robo-funk futurism. The EP opens with intergalactic love song Lost In Space on which Starkey marries his own distorted, lovelorn vocals with those of 17 year old UK singer Charli XCX for a starry eyed duet. Cockroach – a rollercoaster ride of huge drums and hymn-like vocals – precedes the EPs two grittiest, hardest hitting offerings: the blazing Sunlight – an industrial strength blend of rave-tinged percussion, speaker-troubling basslines and surging synths – and the dizzying, hypnotic Street Rockers. Bricks sees Starkey teaming up with rapper and fellow Philadelphian Curly Castro ahead of the soundtrack-like, ambient finale, Craters. The EP’s comes with the second chapter of Space Traitor, a short spoken-word story written by Starkey, and six remixes by Innerpartysystem, Om Unit, Darling Farah, Distal, Monky and The Elementz. Born Paul J. Geissinger, and known to friends as PJ, Starkey’s ongoing mission to chart the outer reaches of the sonic universe has so far included; studio sessions with Tinie Tempah, producing Maverick Sabre’s Run To The Roof, helming the Daily Dose Of Dubstep slot on MistaJam’s 1xtra show for two months, and his acclaimed albums Ephemeral Exhibits and Ear Drums And Black Holes. Whilst the most obvious bracket for his output is the burgeoning British post-dubstep/bass music scene, Starkey lives just outside of Philadelphia. This geographical anomaly coupled with the emotion and depth of his painstakingly constructed arrangements helps explain his unique, always-fresh output.
