Starkey’s 3rd full-length album, ORBITS, will be released on December 3rd, 2012 (with some stores getting exclusives a week earlier, November 26th [be on the lookout]). The album will be released on the Civil Music label, with whom Starkey also released the Space Traitor Vol 1 & 2 releases with.
Orbits is the latest thrilling installment in Starkey’s ‘street bass’ odyssey. The Philly producer draws on grime, hip-hop, electro, bass music and beyond to blast off with his most accomplished and fully realized album yet.
Starkey’s intricately crafted, sci-fi inspired tracks escape the intro-drop breakdowndrop formula of most dance music thanks to a more expansive, ambitious approach. Epic opener Renegade Starship paves the way for the heavy-hitting Command, which, along with remixes by Plastician, Drums Of Death and others, will be released as a lead single. The album continues to straddle straight club tracks (see The Shuttle, Dystopia) and more ambient offerings (Crashing Sphere, Synchronize) throughout. Huge drums, Southern rap style high hats and Vangelis-like fizzing synths are deployed to dramatic effect, and the energy and aggression of grime pervade the record.
