Originating from Nottingham and now currently dwelling in Manchester, Star Slinger has been producing some sonically great hip-hop tracks this year, inspired from Curtis Mayfield to Cap n Jazz. Last week Darren Williams released his first collection of beats, Volume 1, sampling everything from child-fronted reggae to soul to 80’s rock. Volume 1 is available from the Star Slinger’s bandcamp page, I recommend you to go and download it now.
Star Slinger is also putting his touch on a few remixes of Teams and Fiveng. Listen below:
