Star Slinger

Star Slinger is an Electronic project created by Nottinghamshire born Darren Williams. It all started in April 2010 when he re-ignited his love for record-shopping in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The name Star Slinger was born when Darren sampled BT Express’ instrumental B Side “Cowboy Dancer”. He often names his creations with word association towards the sample he uses. By June 2010 Darren had pieced together his first LP “Volume 1”. Some tracks were reportedly made in the comfort of his own bed in the early hours. Others made not long after waking. Darren believes that routine and weekend culture aren’t his forte, and creating music at any given moment is how he approaches this project. Meantime in June, Darren began collaborating with Ambient producer Teams (Knoxville, TN). Together they worked on an EP, sending stems via soundcloud and were approached shortly after by the popular Brooklyn-based label Mexican Summer to release a 12” as Teams vs. Star Slinger.  The S/T EP will be out early 2011. Skip to August 2010 Star Slinger is also in demand with the indie community. Small Black championed his Remix of their song “Photojournalist”. The blogosphere championed his Unofficial  Remix of Deerhunter’s “Helicopter” and has since been approached for Official Remix Work from some of his longtime favourite bands, including Broken Social Scene (Arts & Crafts) , The Morning Benders (Rough Trade) & The Go! Team (Memphis Industries). Darren has also formed a collaboration group with Emay (Rapper/Producer from Toronto) and Blackbird Blackbird (Dream-Pop artost from San Francisco) called Seeing Suge. Star Slinger started touring Europe in December 2010 and will tour the US with Baths and Braids in February 2011.
