DECEMBER 6TH - 2008 - ill.gates - Autopirate album launch in Toronto Canada.
SENSORIA invites you back to the Augusta House on December 6th for an unforgettable evening promising sensational bass and eye-widening visuals. The night showcases a dual album launch party for Philadelphian grime don Starkey - “Ephemeral Exhibits” (out on Planet µ, Nov. 24th) and Torontonian glitch-and-bass heavy-hitter ill.gates - “Autopirate” (out this fall on Muti Music) with both Dubslingers and Subtrac representing Toronto dubstep in full force.
STARKEY (Planet µ)
“I operate on the fringes of dubstep, like Vex’d, Darkstar and Joker. So much music nowadays lacks melodies, that’s why I stick out I think.”
Starkey is undoubtably Philidelphia’s finest dubstep / grime / bass artist and the latest signing to Planet µ. In the 2008 grime and dubstep arena, Starkey is a gleaming bright anomaly. Whereas so many producers’ default mode is darkness and gloom, Starkey’s music is saturated with upbeat colour, and through melody he harnesses a powerful, alien rave energy seldom heard enough. His latest remarkable beats are definitely going to get you bouncing and we’re excited to have him here in Toronto. Recently, he was featured on BBC Radio One through the Mary Anne Hobbs’ “Bass Generation” show - a huge honour. For a monthly dose, be sure to check out the show he hosts on “Seclusiasis Radio” every 1st monday of the month on SubFM.
