STAR CREATURE

First Touch & Yvonne Gag

Tonight's The Night / You Can Have It All

Second Star Creature this week you lucky buggers! This stable of all things modern funk, new disco and boogie related is going from strength to strength, with each consecutive release selling out and becoming collector's items within weeks!

First Choice has previously released an amazing double LP on Star Creature full of tasty new electro-funk, boogie and house flavoured style. They reassert their feel good vibe here with a double-A side of their glistening, polished brand dancefloor music. Both sides deliver the kind of hard-hitting, late night boogie that's currently massively in vogue due in no small part to NTS's Full Beam! FM. Super limited and highly desirable, buy now or cry later. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Get a fully authentic dose of the Wet Play and Red Laser dancefloors as First Choice keep the boogie flames burnin'. Unbeatable.

Saucy Lady Ft. J-Zone

Alien Nation / Orbit

More reliable than both the X43 and 101 bus routes combined, Star Creature come through correct every week - brinGing you the best in stateside modern funk, boogie and all that's good in bedroom-based soul musica!

Saucy Lady's a staple on the label, the Boston songstress being one of the firm's most flamboyant artists. Here she's joined by Jay Mumford aka J-Zone for a rampant funk jam driven by live drums and swirling keyboard work. SL's sweet and sensual vocal delivers as always while Mumford adds a somewhat rawer, rough-around-the-edges production style that forces you to take note. All in all, another winner for team Star Creature! 


Potatohead People Feat Trailer Limon

Stop The Games

Another week, you guessed it, another Star Creature; the Brooklyn stable hitting an average of 4 releases a month at present!

Old favourite Trailer Limon returns alongside the wonderfully named Potatohead People for A-side cut, "Stop The Games". Deploying the usual formula of squelchy synth, warbly washes and snappy drum hits, a Princesque vocal deliver heads up the action with some nice backing vocals working in harmony with the lead part.

The mysteriously named 'Nicky's Falling In Love Dub' is a nicely executed dub done in that traditional boogie style; retaining the odd vocal utterance, washing it in echo and stripping back the arrangement to give more focus to the groove. Nice!


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Trailer Limon man. He's back! With that super slick funk that graced the previous 7", this Cali-cat is a rising star of the modern funk scene. Get to know!

DJ Friction Presents Ground Control Featuring David Whitley

Step Out Of The Dark

Second Star Creature to drop this week as the label continue to ply their new boogie and modern funk wares to our receptive head spaces. DJ Friction has had a long and storied career: working as a DJ in the late 80s in and around his hometown of Stuttgart, working on productions through hip-hop, jungle and electro styles and commercial success with rap group Freundeskreis.

Here for Star Creature he switches tact again, opting for two fully authentic, soul drenched cuts and featuring the inimitable voice of David Whitley. "Step Out Of The Dark" mixes live and electronic drums and sees Rhodes and fretted bass conjure up a heady groove while Whitley's vocals are the main attractions - a thoroughly soulful outing with great lyrics and impassioned delivery. "All Nite Long" is equally solid - a bedroom boogie future classic with catch AF chorus, squelchy synth bits and wicky-wah guitar licks. Both tracks are the kinda shit you hear regularly on Sunday's Full Beam! FM show on NTS2 and come fully endorsed by the good ship Piccadilly.
