Open The Pod Bay Doors

Ninja Tune. Ninja Tune. Ninja Tune. There, I've said it. Here is the new disc on Ninja Tune by increasingly legendary electronic producer Starkey.  The title track 'Open the Pod Bay Doors' is a well dench slab of squeaky electro with huge thumping bass, better is track two, 'Blood Ro...view item »


Christ, I started this one up at the wrong speed too.. You never can tell these days. Starkey's stuff picked up a bit for me recently, with the completely alien-sounding 'Creature' from a few months back being one particular highlight, so let's see how this one does. The lead tune's got to be the most laid-back thing I've heard him do so far as he ...view item »

Ear Drums & Black Holes

He's a funny one this guy. He does the odd thing that I think is amazing but generally he doesn't leave a particularly strong impression with me, as on this new one. Yeah, it's got some pretty rude Gameboy G-funk moments, some cool broken hip-hop times and some flashes where giant beats seem to be stomping a path of destruction through a Japanese c...view item »

Knob Twiddler

Fuck me, this Starkey thing is sweet! Not only is it a record, it's also a DJ tool, imprinted on one side with the revolutionary 'Serato Control Tone' which enables you to scratch with digital files! I'm not bothered about that shit, sounds well Judge Jules. Like Brett said yesterday, Jeff Mills used to chuck his records over his shoulder when he'd...view item »

Miracles (Jamie Vex’d Remix)

'Miracles (Jamie vex'd remix)' sees Jamie Vex'd (of the infamous purple wow styles) monkeying about with one of the highlights from Starkey's "Ephemeral Exhibits" debut on Planet Mu. It's powered by eighties synths, a low rider of a bass line and strange use of reverb and gates to give it what Ant has referred to as a 'Stadium dubstep' so...view item »

Ephemeral Exhibits

Starkey's Epehemeral Exhibits is in on CD and waxslab, not-so ephemerally exhibiting the style that's comically become known as 'wonky'. Along with Rustie, Joker and the like, this young buck specialises in fashioning slightly comical, upbeat tunes from dubsteppy building blocks. Keeping the bass but shedding the broody urban murk in favour of high...view item »

Mathhead/ Starkey/ Black Ham
The Crusade

Local Headlines

Starkey has a new 12" out on Werk (which is part of the Baked Goods/ Boomkat empire). So this dude has had stuff out before on Slit Jockey and this is nice dark heavy grimey stuff which leans a bit more to the IDM side of things than straight up rudeboy grime. The flip side is even darker with a punishin...view item »

Dev79/ Starkey

Right, a new label called Slit Jockey has emerged from Philly. Its purpose it claims is to represent stateside Grime. Its a split EP by Dev 79. I really liked the Dev 79 7" on Sonic Terror. Quality noise-hop indeed. His cut "From The Get" is def. I'm not so sure that its grime, but what is grime anywa...view item »
