Blood Orange – “On The Line (Star Slinger Edit)”

In the months since Blood Orange released the great sophomore set Cupid Deluxe, project mastermind Dev Hynes lost all his belongings in an apartment fire. But the album cycle must go on, so here comes Star Slinger’s edit of Cupid Deluxe deep cut “On The Line.” This version of the song manages to maintain Blood… More »

Download Star Slinger’s Remix Of Anita Baker’s “Sweet Love”

British producer Star Slinger is releasing a series of four remixes in the run-up to his New Year’s Eve show at Beauty Bar in Chicago. The first is a spliced-up edit of Anita Baker’s quiet storm classic “Sweet Love” that transmogrifies the song into something still sultry, but in a 21st century sense. It’s there… More »

Star Slinger – “Free”

Star Slinger is probably better known for his remixes, and the way he can rip a song apart while keeping its spirit completely intact. His Miguel remix earlier this year did that just fine, but now he’s got an original out titled “Free.” So it’s not a remix, but don’t worry, there are still plenty… More »

Miguel – “Adorn (Star Slinger Remix)”

We’re quite familiar with Star Slinger’s propensity for cracking songs at their center and re-imagining them into glittering dance jams. Here, he’s flipped Miguel’s yearning “Adorn” into a kinetic, house-imbued cut but still kept its romance in tact. Check it out below. More »

Star Slinger – “Ladies In The Back” Video (Feat. Teki Latex)

Ladies In The Back,” British producer Star Slinger’s warped club-rap collaboration with funny-looking Parisian rapper Teki Latex, is months old, and we’re only now getting the video. Maybe that’s because it took months to line up the exact right French model girls to grind on each other while Taki and Star Slinger comically jeer. Thi… More »

Little Dragon – “Sunshine (Star Slinger Remix)”

We’ve already heard from shaggy British producer Star Slinger once today, as he made the beat for the new Cities Aviv track “G A L L E R Y G U R L Z.” And now he’s got another track up online. It’s a remix of “Sunshine,” a song from Swede-pop stars Little Dragon, and… More »

Cities Aviv – “G A L L E R Y G U R L Z” (Prod. Star Slinger)

Cities Aviv is a Memphis rapper who projects regular-dudeness even as he throws bits of goopy psych and noise-rock into his productions. Star Slinger is a British producer whose tracks flirt with hazy bass-music ideas while still maintaining a Southern rap thump. These guys, then, are natural fits for one another, and it’s nice to… More »

Star Slinger – “Ladies In The Back” (Feat. Teki Latex)

The spaced-out, rap-damaged UK producer Star Slinger will drop a new EP called Ladies In The Back next month, and its first single and title track is a hazy blurp of dance-rap, like what might happen if Flo Rida discovered chillwave. I know that sounds terrible, but it’s good, honest! It’s about as straightforward a… More »

Star Slinger – “Take This Up”

UK producer Star Slinger is throwing a couple of his Jet Jam dance parties later this month in Seattle and Los Angeles, so in tandem with that announcement he’s got a new MP3 out today. It’s a sugar-rush of a cut called “Take This Up,” which is more than appropriate fare for the previously mentioned… More »

Jessie Ware – “Wildest Moments (Star Slinger Remix)”

We’ve already heard “Wildest Moments,” the evocative new single from British robo-soul singer Jessie Ware, and we’ve seen the sparse video. And now UK remix specialist Star Slinger has reworked the track, winding Ware’s voice around a busily twinkly bass-music beat that fits the song beautifully. Listen below. More »

Drake (Feat. The Weeknd) – “Crew Love” (Star Slinger’s Jersey Refix)”

UK producer Star Slinger loves remixing rap dudes. His latest: A skittering dance reworking of “Crew Love,” Drake’s depressive collab with the Weeknd. Impressively, Star Slinger keeps the song’s pathos intact while giving it a serious club engine. Download it below. More »

Star Slinger – “Bad Bitches” (Feat. Stunnaman & Lil B)

UK sample maven Star Slinger stages a small reunion of Lil B’s original group the Pack (of “Vans” fame, most notably) on “Bad Bitches,” a loud, stuttering jam featuring Pack alums Stunnaman and the BasedGod. You can’t help but think of what it might sound like with the modern Young L on the production, but… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Vacation, it would seem, is finally over. For the first time in a few weeks, it was actually a bit of a chore to narrow this list down to five videos, since a lot of people are finally letting some good work out into the world. And I’m a bit surprised that two of them… More »

Star Slinger – “Dumbin'” (Feat. Reggie B) Video

Stereogum40 alum Star Slinger has been busy lately, especially on the remix side of things, but today he dropped a video for his own single, “Dumbin’”, at Green Label Sound. As you may recall, Diplo did his own remix of that track, and video director Dan Higginson made a mirroring video for that as well,… More »

Star Slinger – “Chain Dumbin’ (Feat. Juicy J, Project Pat & Reggie B)”

A few months ago, UK remix specialist Star Slinger released the Green Label Sound single “Dumbin’,” an all-original collaboration with singer Reggie B that Diplo promptly remixed. And now we’ve got a new version of the song, “Chain Dumbin’.” This one has a couple of unexpected guests: Longtime Three 6 Mafia hard-rock hedonists Juicy J… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Peso (Star Slinger Refix)”

I’m not sure why Star Slinger keeps tackling songs that are pretty perfect just the way they are, but I admire the kid’s moxie. Check out his latest remix, this time a re-configured version of ASAP Rocky’s syrupy “Peso,” after the jump. More »

Drake – “Over My Dead Body (Star Slinger Remix)”

Stereogum40 alum Star Slinger reworks Drake’s Take Care opener “Over My Dead Body,” instilling the song with an off-kilter, tempo-heightening beat. Not sure the Sistine Chapel needed another coat of paint, but it’s worth noting. Download the song after the jump and also check out Drake’s performance of “Headlines” from last night’s American Music Awards. More »

Now superstar DJ Diplo has reworked the track, making it dancier and more cluttered. To download his remix, head over to the Green Label Sound Facebook page and click “like.” It’s streaming below.

Star Slinger – “Moet & Reese”

That image above, the one that looks like a pretty fun date-night recipe, is the art for “Moet & Reese,” the appropriately-titled new track from British producer Star Slinger. The track is a breezy soul-sampling lope, and it sounds pretty great alongside the constantly-on-repeat new Drake album. Download it below. More »

Remixtape Vol. 6

It’s the return of Remixtape, the feature where I listen to a tremendous amount of shitty blog-bait “X Remixes Y” tracks and weed out those worth your weed-out. (Right?) Volume 6 opens with this month’s undisputed champion of tracks bearing Remix in their title: the indomitable “Huzzah!” featuring a fierce set of relatively underground rapper… More »
