V/A - Darkstarr: They Live By The Night (MRR)


After proclaiming their inception with a few parties, choice remakes and a blog, Cosmo and Ashley Beedle show that their Darkstarr project is here to stay with this double mix CD. Magical modern and retro disco inspired tackle is the music on show here, put together by two keen selectors. London based Cosmo hails from NY, was a pupil of legendary Loft poineer David Mancuso and certainly knows her way around the disco. Cosmo’s selection includes gems such as Darkstarr’s own stupendous take on Mavis featuring Candi Staton’s Revolution and Montana’s simply beautiful Warp Factor II. Ashley Beedle needs little introduction as he is both a house and modern disco daddy, rising to prominence with projects such as The Ballistic Brothers, Black Science Orchestra and X Press 2. Ashley’s gems include Franck Roger‘s remix of Little Big Bee‘s sax drenched City, Country, City and the Disco Jams mix of Blackjoy‘s groovesome Djomani. It looks like Darkstarr are here to stay, which is undoubtedly a good thing.
