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.

Shiro Schwarz Featuring Zackey Force Funk

Take The Wheel

Do the Star Creature boys ever take a holiday? One of the most consistent labels of modern time delivers yet another certified dancefloor filler thru team all star, Shiro Schwarz who, joined by the amazingly titled Zackey Force Funk, shows us just how construct an effortlessly cool G-funk boogie jam! "Take The Wheel" is an appropriate title for this hydraulic-rockin' beast, as you'll be too busy with your hands out the sun roof doing air triggers to bother steering! As often the case with Star Creature, we get both vocal and instrumental versions; with each a truck-bumpin', bifter-sparking slice of LA funk as incendiary as anything else on the market (ps. don't miss that last outro section...fyyyre!! - ed).

Executive tackle here from Star Creature loan signing, Giovanni Damico, a southern Italian maestro who runs White Rabbit records and has graced many a dancefloor pitch with his game changing skills, including league champions Lumberjacks In Hell.

Making the trip over the pond to the Brooklyn camp before laying down an exquisite set of liquid funk and sunshine boogie - executed with that effortless SC flair with skilled drum programming, inspired synth licks and perfectly formed arrangements. Smatterings of vocoder give the tracks that B-boy flavoured edge and you can well image yourself shooting ball whilst people body pop' down at the court on a sweltering hot summer's day in Philly, NY, NJ or any of those street-smart US cities. Limited copies and most sought after so don't delay if ya want in. 

Mogwaa Ft. Andrew Gibson

I'm Just Sayin / Angelica

Mogwaa is a musician from Seoul, South Korea. His second release for Star Creature, "I'm Sure Sayin" perfectly hits that late night smooth soul slot; decorating beautifully with gilded keys and bright, burning synth lines. Mogwaa's vocal delivery is assured; both sultry and masculine at the same time - the very epitome of boogie. "Angelica" is a pure lovers, bedroom romp. Much slower than its predecessor, it utilizes big gated synth bass, picked guitar lines and a sludgy, sub-110BPM beat. As usual, limited copies, move quick!

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Always landing in pairs, triplets or quadruplets, one of three tasty Star Creature releases to kick start your February dance movements.

Love Cryme

Give It 2 Me / She's So Freaky

Herrrre's Star Creature, the world leading authority on all things modern funk & bedroom boogie related. The Brooklyn label, ran by Tim Zawada and 'fellow boogie munster', Ben Van Dyk continues to be the one stop shop for lovers of the scene.

Ben Johnson and Tim Tucker make up Love Cryme, who here drop a double-A side of funked up, hardware pleasure - beautifully decorated with vocals by the two producers in a true DIY fashion.

While "Give 2 Me" boasts sludgy drums and thick squelchy bass, "She's So Freaky" injects some pace through its big square wave synths and vintage Jomox hand claps. Both come correct with subtle guitar and keyboard flurries and niggles, working in unison with the vocals in an authentic, call-response style. Top stuff as Star Creature add more weight to their roster - what else did you expect?!


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Star Creature rock. You know this. The third release this week adds a new signing to their impressive roster. Need a double-A side of bedroom boogie badness? Check.

Star Creature look to our fertile soils for their newest release. Situation are a collective of DJs, producers, editors and musicians, based in Five Valleys, UK. Andrew Espeut is a vocalist and songwriter. Born in London Andre has been involved with many labels since the early 2000's, within the soul / funk / boogie / disco and house scene.

"Never Thought I'd Get Ya" comes with four (count em!) remixes. From the galvanized electro-boogie of the OG, Dom Thompson keeps the fire alive with his more soul-flecked version. Afro Acid drop a steady 4/4 over the stems, bring out some warm piano chords, playful perc and a rounded B-line to create a simmering mid-tempo number that should find favour right across the board. The lights gets further blurred by Frank Situation who drops a nocturnal house refix that glows by a midnight candlelight. All in a all a solid addition to the Star Creature twelve inch collection. Top stuff. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: You know the script by now right? Star Creature bring you the tightest n freshest modern soul flavours loud and direct from Brooklyn. The first excursion onto home soils sees UK outfit Situation joined by esteemed LDN vocalist Andre Espeut and is so good it's garnered the most remixes per record to date! Booom!

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.
