Best New Tracks: Jessie Ware x Star Slinger

Entertainment Music and Art

Jessie Ware is one of the most talked about British artists of the moment. Her debut gets its release on 20 August, following several strong singles released this year, and a spot featuring on SBTRKT’s debut last year.

Star Slinger is a Manchester-based producer and DJ. Volume I is his first LP, self-released in 2010, and it takes influences from instrumental hip-hop, chillwave, and R&B.

On this brilliant remix, Star Slinger has created an uptempo, 130bpm rework of Jessie Ware’s ‘Wildest Moments.’ Ghostly vocals open the track over a cowbell, before Ware’s voice comes in with a greater sense of urgency than the original. From a slow and lethargic ballad akin to Adele, Star Slinger has, with pitch bends and accelerated beats, instilled new life.
