Starchildluke is back with BOWSERTAPE2, his 8th #Road2Switch album. Knxwledge might be winding down on his output but he isn’t the only one who can churn out albums and EPs. Starchildluke embarked on an ambitious series called #Road2Switch where proceeds from his albums went towards a Nintendo Switch. He managed to acquire enough money but he’s carrying it on for Switch games. The UK producer…

It’s a new moniker for Starchildluke as he releases his fifth #Road2Switch series. No prizes for guessing where the name Shrill Evans comes from. But in case you didn’t know, it’s a lo-fi take on the late piano maestro Bill Evans. And Starchildluke took that inspiration for his new alter-ego on new album, MONOLITH. He describes it as “a sub-20-minute journey through jazz and classical…

Another month, another beat tape from Starchildluke. This one is called GENGARTAPE. Even though he hit his target, the #Road2Switch series still rolls on with a fifth release. Starchildluke’s GENGARTAPE doesn’t have a concrete theme, but many of the samples on the tracks reference things like ghosts and poison, a nod to the titular Pokémon, Gengar. The producer initially wanted a video game beat tape…

A little late but the UK producer is back again with his fourth #Road2Switch album release, BOWSERTAPE. In arguably his best release of the series, Starchildluke brings us BOWSERTAPE. He’s called it an “alternative love album” loosely based on Bowser’s “relationship” with Princess Peach. To tell the tale, Starchildluke has used mostly R&B samples with a random mix of skits per his trademark style. As…

The UK producer drops the second album from his #Road2Switch series. We covered Starchildluke’s last album, Boas Festas, when it came out for Christmas. His aim was to release one album a month in 2019 for his #Road2Switch series, a fund created to buy a Nintendo Switch. January’s album is called VENOMTAPE and uses a variety of rock samples and frantic samples. Inspired by Madlib’s…

An alternative Christmas beat tape by Starchildluke with a worthy cause attached. This is my album; I am Starchildluke. I refrain from promoting my music too much on the site but I thought this was relevant for two reasons: It’s for Christmas It has samples in it It came about while I was on holiday in Lisbon in November (hence the name). I got into…

Our editor, aka st/rr, releases his new album and it’s called NOTIME. When he’s not writing for the website, Luke Alex Davis produces music and after self proclaimed “musical rut”, he’s back with a brand new project as “st/rr”. “NOTIME.” has been in the works for a few months and sees the UK producer throw together his classic blend of random vocal samples and heavy…

We have our first house producer on the books with the “signing” of Xomodo. After the release of his latest album, “drfts.”, producer st/rr has decided to start a brand new side project. “I enjoyed making the French house track on ‘drfts.’ so much, I wanted to take it a bit further,” said the UK producer, “And that’s where Xomodo was born.” Xomodo is currently…

We asked our friend Stephanie Vaughn aka Softjunebreeze aka Stepholonious aka Rap Game Simone Biles to put together a Olympic Games mix. This is what she came up with. We’re grateful to know some incredibly talented people, so we reached out to one such individual to compile a Brazilian mix for the Olympics. Now, we’re a week late but I’ve been ill and since the…
