E Da Boss (The Pendletons, Myron & E) made his first Star Creature debut with his group Lucid Paradise. His return features Ishtar and new single "Pool 4 U" comes in two flavours - one produced by The Whole Truth and the other remixed by E. Live.

The A Side gets the E. Live, jazz-funk remix treatment while the B Side comes heavy with a foot stomping, boogie bomb, floor filling flavour throughout! Another essential modern classic from the Star Creature juggernaut. Limited copies! 


Matt says: A brand new boogie bomb from the Star Creature camp that's of such a high pedigree I had to check it wasn't a cover version. Summery vibes across both takes, with a more galvanized production promoted by E.Live, while The Whole Truth offer up that original disco-boogie flavour.


A. Fool 4 U (remixed By E. Live)
B. Fool 4 U (produced By The Whole Truth) 

Heavy slapping boogie joint from E Live, originally released in 2017 we strangely (and criminally!) didn't seem to stock it at the time for whatever reason... Thank the lords for this repress then as this is one hot nugget from the Star Creature camp you do NOT want to be without!

People, we're talking a phenomenal bedroom boogie jam here, with "Feelin Nervous" cruising through red lit neons on a late night tip. Beatdown vocals, interplanetary synth interplay and minimalist yet sophisticated arrangement make this sexy as hell.

On the flip, day time grooves are explored as "Feelin You Up" winds down the roof of the soft-top for a slow drive through the suburbs, soundtracked by summery synth-flute, sparkly keyboard stabs and gently strumming Stratocaster for a killer slice of instrumental boogie few can resist!

How did we miss it first time round?! Bad pig! 


Matt says: Storming slice of bedroom boogie from E Live here with a nice mid afternoon moocher on the flip for the disco drivers.

Voyear & Frankfurt Funk Feat. Eva

En Transit

The Star Creature factory line keeps on ticking over, new signings Voyear & Frankfurt Funk manufacturing some high grade boogie business for our dancing and delectation.

Both tracks casually resting in what Full Beam FM! refers to as crawlers & moochers. These are slower, soulful cuts, full of pitch bent b-lines, tickling synth licks and syncopated drum machines - the very essence of bedroom boogie. The French vocals only add to the overtly sensual nature while the synth work throughout is absolutely top drawer. Can't fault this one! Another essential from the now long-running stable. 


Matt says: Crawlers from the Star Creature camp as they mellow out the moods for the hotter months. Perfect for winding down the windows when your stuck in traffic on you're way to the beach.

A Vision Of Panorama

Let Me / Move EP

As is the norm - a Tugboat tends to precede a Star Creature - and this week the two have both come into dock at planet Piccadilly. Bringing Balearic-boogie superstar A Vision Of Panorama & Sykes back to the label with remixes from Pool Boy - splish splash!

"Let Me" is a sun-flecked, late afternoon boogie-house jam with lavish instrumentation and even a highly accomplished clav solo! The vocal is deep and soulful, which lends itself to that 4/4 rhythm beautifully. Pool Boy's remix takes it right to the sun loungers, mellowing out the BPMs and adding languid keys and a delicate drum box; transforming the mood into a Balearic downbeat vibe which is equally as seductive as the OG.

"Move" sees AVOP return to a rugged house groove, galvanized with boogie flavoured instrumentation as decorated again with deep soulful vox by Sykes. Sultry and fiery, it'll sound great as the sun seeps behind the horizon after a clammy day dancing in the streets. 


Matt says: Summer's here! (is it?! - Ed). Let A Vision Of Panorama guide to the poolside, cocktail in hand, for a day of decadence splashing around with the ones you love or desire.

Star Creature's Italian boogie buffalo Giovanni Damico comes fresh for the label with, I have to say, a pretty tantalizing new sound. Though still rooted in that vintage boogie sound (Linn drums and slap bass a plenty...) "Watch Out" jolts out with a confident urgency. Dazzling keyboard licks, meticulously programmed drums and a frenetic b-line combining perfectly with Damico's empowered vocal. "Nowhere" is a creeping synth disco track, reminiscent of Sylvester's more electronic and sultry numbers. "Night Time" opens with bright synth bursts before dropping into a raw boogie groove littered with space echo detritus. Then the fun loving vocal drops urging you into party mode. "Voodoo" irreverently cruises into full on space disco moods - recalling Arpadys & Sauver Mallia's soaring epics. Finally, "Cowbell (Eeh Aah Eeh)" is a tropical disco flavoured beast that has end-of-night qualities written all over it. Majestic flute, fluttering muted Strat licks, galloping percussion, this baby got it all...

Brilliantly diverse modern boogie flavours for the discerning dancer and jock! Highly recommended! 


Matt says: One of my favourite signings of the Star Creature camp, Giovanni Damico can always be relied upon for summat fresh. "Watch Out" takes the boogie template into dazzling new territories - a highly syncopated offering with space-age sfx but with that vintage drum programming and untreated soulful vox that's synonymous with the genre. Sure to be a true classic of the scene that's so far undiscovered.

Star Creature's first official compilation featuring unreleased tracks and new mixes by label fav's E. Live, Giovanni Damico, Shiro Schwarz, Ourra, Saucy Lady, Proh Mic, Amalia and Kutcorners...

Star Creature is the no. 1 international label for new boogie and modern funk. No other camp has represented the sound so strongly and authentically in present times. Finding a natural habitat across the digital airwaves of many a Manchester radio show, and soundtracking a fair share of its nightlife too (check the whole Wet Play / Full Beam / Red Laser Disco gamut for proof...), it continues the long standing tradition of US dance music going down a storm in the north west of England!

Star Creature have lavishly dished out seven new tracks for our dancing feet, and at remarkably good value too. They could have just as easily reissued five of their now-sold-out 7" across one disc and charged us twenty quid for it. Instead we get a jam packed 12" with ALL NEW material and featuring a different artist on each track, and for less than the price of two cocktails in the Northern Quarter. Star Creature we love you! 


A1. Saucy Lady - A Shooting Star
A2. Proh Mic - Tunnel Vision
A3. Kutkorners - The Finest (feat Amalia - E Live Remix)
A4. Ourra & The Gravity Drive - Instant Sunshine
B1. Shiro Schwarz - Exoplanet Love
B2. Giovanni Damico - Cassette Funk
B3. E Live - Do Me Like That (feat Chesta Blake - Slight Extension Mix)

New 12" from the Star Creature camp with Adam Chini on production duties and First Touch on the remix.

"Slide" is a moody, flirtatious number rich with tantalizing leads, thick pads and this infectious vocoder hook that'll urge dancing whilst the lovers get busy in the darker corners of the club. Both funky and sexy in equal measure it's the very definition of modern boogie, and a great addition to the label's star-studded catalogue.

First Touch add that flamboyant, new disco twist with live bass guitar, fluttery melodies and generally a strong glitterball vibe throughout - never losing sight of the original's sentiment.

As always - an imperative slice of modern boogie from the world's no. 1 imprint. Essential! 


Matt says: Essential additions to any burgeoning boogie and new disco collection. Star Creature all stars Adam Chini and First Touch deliver two unmissable dancefloor cuts.

XL Middleton & Saucy Lady

Go Steady

Decorated Star Creature veterans XL Middleton & Saucy Lady combine forces for a spectacular slice of modern funk here. Not only does "Go Steady" have an impossible to ignore chorus, it features some serious slick and funky synth work from Middleton; and a yearning, sugary vocal from Saucy Lady. An instant classic for the label, this is exactly why Star Creature was conceived to showcase the best in modern boogie and funk records like this! 

A complete no brainer for any dancefloor, it'll have dancers won over in second with it's full array of instrumental goodness and heavenly sweet vocal. Come with instrumental version. 


Matt says: Star Creature doing what it does best - exemplary modern funk for the aficionados and new inductees of boogie school.

Giovannia Damico

Ashes / Milky Way

Yet another bedroom boogie bonanza from the good folks at Star Creature who've enlisted the Italian stalion, Gionvanni Damico for their latest 7". The well decorated producer has already graced labels such as Lumberjacks In Hell, Bordello A Parigi, Kalakuta Soul and Faces with his slick and star-studded, fresh boogie sound!

Lead track, "Ashes" rev's outta off the grid with ruged vintage drum hits, picked guitar lines, Strat chops and plucked bassline. Cue Damico with an inspired vocal, sung in half Italian, half English and a catchy as covid chorus synth refrain. It's stripped back, it's quirky, it's sexy; it's everything your late nite disco needs!

"Milky Way" unpacks reverb heavy drums, vocodered vox and retro-future sci-fi leads for a cosmic funk system meltdown with lashings of Italo flavour!

Full picture sleeve, limited import copies. Move quick!


Matt says: Really strong release from the perma-funkin' Star Creature mob. Inspired city pop stylings with 'nuff Italo / boogie references for extra pleasure. You know what to do!

Kappekoff, Reggie Got Beats & Andre Espeut


We told you Star Creature were properly 'on one', as we like to say here in Manchester. Well, the boogie bombardment continues this week with an all-star release from label stalwart Andre Espeut, who's joined by synth revivalists Kappekoff and Reggie Got Beats for the sweet, sparkly single: "Sugar". Ripe with squiggly lead lines, explosive slap bass, Jomox drums and soulful lead vocals from Esput. Comes with instrumental.

Limited copies.

The salvo of 7"s from the Star Creature bunker continues to rain down on us - with another two arriving this week! E. Live is back, adding his patented boogie shimmer to newcomer Gillies' lead track "What About Luv".

Rich with Italo nuances, "What About Luv" is drenched in sensuality, a laser-guided, pheromone-fueled, late night mission into decadence and excess. The Bay Area boogie boss injects a playful, stripped back sensibility into the equation, mellowing it out into an early evening groover.

Both tracks are winners for me, with two very different moods explored. Star Creature remain the most crucial force in modern funk! TIP. 


Matt says: Are Brooklyn's Star Creature secretly challenging MCR's Red Laser to a battle of the boogie? Firing over an Italo-tinged missile at our Manctalo brothers, inviting a return fire bedroom boogie blast from Il Bosco and co.? The plot thickens in the boogie wars saga... stay tuned for more info.

Adam Chini Featuring Zackey Force Funk


Tasty 7" from the Star Creature stable featuring new signing Adam Chini who contributes a veritable slice of modern funk for the esteemed label.

"Boomerang" comes in vocal and instrumental versions and pairs up sloppy synth work, blue-sky synth patches and shuddering slap bass. The infectious and clever vocal yearns for the return of a lover's desire - hence the title: "Boomerang".

Limited copes and high demand as always....


Matt says: Deeply personal bedroom boogie from the SC camp which should appeal to fans of PPU and the more lo-fi end of the spectrum.

Cruisin' / Sunset

Debut 7" Double Sider from Italian Hybrid Nu Jazz Band "Leones". The A Side takes us on a mid tempo jazz romp around the coastal frequencies mild disco vibes, is there such a thing as Balaeric Detroit? While the A Side is for beach sand dusted dance floor, The B Side makes for a perfect soundtrack for late night coastal highway cruisings. Going to or heading home from the waves is up to you but this full moon vibes cut will provide the nicest wave to get you there.


Patrick says: Star Creature in vintage form here, hooking us up with a perfect pair of sun blushed boogie moochers via the uptempo "Cruisin'" on the A-side and the slow, slanky and perma-stoned "Sunset" on the flip. RIYL Dam Funk, early Moon B and Penders.
