Playing tracks by
Starkey, Nasty Nasty, Wale, Humble Dinosaur, Dev79 and more.
Our latest FACT podcast comes from Philadelphia’s king of Street Bass, Starkey.
More influenced by grime than its more popular cousin, dubstep, Starkey’s made a name for himself with some of this decade’s most dynamic, overblown dance music: bass-heavy club tracks that are rhythmically all over the place, constantly changing direction, with dramatic key changes and leadlines that sear higher than the stars before imploding like dying stars.
Starkey has one of the biggest sounds around – and not in a cheap, tearout dubstep sense – his tracks carry tons of physical and emotional weight; tracks like ‘Miracles’ and ‘Crippling’ some of the most beautiful tracks produced by this anything goes, post-garage music.
