While much of his work over the past few years has centered around the folk traditions of Burmese refugees driven from their homeland, David Starfire has returned to the hard-hitting world bass fusion sound that first brought him into the national spotlight.
The release of Sonic Boom Shiva is a powerful message that Starfire has returned to take his belt as a heavyweight champion of global bass music. The psychedelic trap and intensity of the title track and opener “Let's Go” hearken back to the big tunes that made him king of the Playa. Selecting up-and-coming remixers like PawZ, Dysphemic, and AHEE to put twists on previously released tunes also brings those past David Starfire tunes into the contemporary sphere. Special shouts to AHEE's smoldering new bounce take on “Shock” featuring the legendary Ragga Twins.
There's a lot to be said about the new David Starfire EP, but it's best to just let these tunes rip on a classy system.
