Street bass provocateur and Philadelphia-based producer Starkey is following up his critically-acclaimed Orbits LP with a brand spankin' new EP. Coming out on his own boutique label, Seclusiasis, co-owned with dev79, the five-track Inter-Mission EP is just as introspective as it sounds. While there are a number of contributions from vocalists, and its a maturing sound for Starkey, that rugged, rough-and-tumble edge that defines his sound is still present. It's funny, when you dive into the back catalog, you begin to think "holy shit, all these trap acts are just biting Starkey." Well, you're not wrong. Today's premiere, "Lies," opens like the long-lost soundtrack to a secret Japanese-only Final Fantasy game, but abruptly jumps into some of the hardest-hitting southern swang you've ever heard. DJs are rushing home as you read this just to throw this track into their sets. It's got the juice, as does the entire EP, and it's all yours on March 25th via Seclusiasis. "Lies" is all yours as a FREE DOWNLOAD today!
