Hopefully, 2012 was the year that plenty of listeners got tuned into Starkey‘s frequencies. He’s been bridging the gap between street music and the bass music scene, and cuts like this freebie from Annie Mac Presents showcase that perfectly. Feels like a Trap track, but the elements he builds around it make it so much more. Sure, you can get your bounce on to this, but this feels more like he’s soundtracking a b-boy battle with a pair of robots in some Martian dive bar. Then this big, hulking, gold chain-wearing android steps in and rips the entire club to shreds. Murderation.
Starkey’s Orbits is available now.
