DJ/producer duo Star.One are almost ready to share their star-filled mixtape Elements, and it looks like it’s going to be worth the wait.
Elements features appearances from Trim, P Money, C4, D Double E, Redz, Creed, Mica Paris and loads more, and serves as a killer example of why the two brothers are so respected as selectors. Blending a plethora of influences from classic jungle to US rap, the duo – who rose to prominence with Manchester crew Murkage Cartel – melt the sounds into a surprisingly coherent whole and never allow themselves to buckle under the weight of their ambition or (more importantly) the egos of their long list of collaborators.
You can hear the latest taster below, a break-led cut entitled ‘Never Give Up’ that features Brummie veteran Doctor on vocals. Full mixtape Elements will be available through Star.One’s site tomorrow.
