STAR SLINGER (UK / MEXICAN SUMMER)

He counts the likes of DIPLO, Jamie XX, Donald Glover and Benji B amongst the fans of his melodic, chopped up beats, with pitched up soul vocals sliced around complex drum machine patterns and swathes of vintage synths.His rogue re-workings of the Cocteau Twins and Nicki Minaj are perfect examples of his talent for completely transforming the mood and tone of the original source.

Team & The Morning Benders.With 2011 already offering Teams vs. Star Slinger – 12â (on Brooklynâs finest Mexican Summer label), a Sold Out 7â & a self-released EP (Rogue Cho Pa) – SlingerÂ is touring the UK / EU and beyond, rocking dancefloors and winning eardrums the world over.
