Starchildluke – VENOMTAPE

Starchildluke - VENOMTAPE

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 Rock Konducta project, expect some psychedelic rock, krautrock, math rock, jazz rock, and a few Randy Savage promos to glue the project together.

But why Venom? Here’s what he had to say:

“Venom is my favourite supervillain not called DOOM and I wanted to show my love in the best way I could: through music. Using rock samples also got me out of my comfort zone.”
