SMOG Records is proud to present Starkey's highly anticipated 'Blaster' EP out now. With premieres in Pitchfork, Fact Mag and This Song Is Sick, 'Blaster' is a six track release that bridges gaps between grime, trap, dubstep, experimental and garage, and enters a course of its own. More than just a collection of tracks, the 'Blaster' EP takes you on a journey with epic introductions and melodic bridges in between the heavy moments. This could go off in a club as much as it could your headphones. SMOG Records continues to blaze new territories with this release.
Philadelphia's PJ Geissinger aka Starkey is a formidable force not only in the underground but also as a super producer of the future. Starkey is yet another example of what the streets of Philadelphia can create; his sound hits hard and is littered with subsonic bass and colourful audio frequencies. Grime, dubstep, hip-hop, ambient and more are all blended into his own 'street bass' genre, with a frightening attention to detail and hard lean towards a space age aesthetic. Starkey is also co-owner of the Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey Record labels, and a member of the Trouble & Bass Crew, releasing the freshest output from around the globe. This combined with his fortnightly radio show on Sub FM has positioned him as one of the tastemakers to emerge out of the bass heavy underground.
