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. 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…

Starchildluke – BOWSERTAPE

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…

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…

Starchildluke – Boas Festas

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…

Starchildluke – NOMAD

Not all heroes wear capes but they do release music. This is the new super album from Starchildluke called NOMAD. Yes, I’m writing about my own music. But who better to do it, right? NOMAD is a project I’d been sitting on for a few months with nothing more than a name and half-finished beat folders. So rather than them sit there gathering digital dust,…
