Shrill Evans – MONOLITH

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…

Starchildluke – GENGARTAPE

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.

The producer initially wanted a video game beat tape…

January’s album is called VENOMTAPE and uses a variety of rock samples and frantic samples. Inspired by Madlib’s…

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…
