Philadelphia based artist, Starkey isn’t just another talented music producer who has gained universal recognition. A leader of “Street Bass,” which combines elements of hip-hop, grime and dubstep, creates different dimensions in his music with an ingenious complexity that separates him from other artists. Notably one of the first producers to bring the sound of grime to the United States, Starkey’s richly textured production style, classical music background and refined music engineering has earned him a global fan-base as a true inventor of sound.

Since 2005, he’s undoubtedly captivated a revolutionary following with his individuality, forward thinking production style, and intergalactic bass-heavy arrangements. In 2008, he was the only American producer selected for the “Generation Bass” special on the legendary Mary Anne Hobbs BBC Radio 1 show. In 2012 he released his critically acclaimed album “Orbits,” which Pitchfork gave an 8/10 and called it “classic synth grandeur.”  His latest full-length, “The Transponder Orchestra” was Bleep’s Album-of-the-Week saying “his style has become grander and more ambitious in scope, and on Starkey’s fourth album The Transponder Orchestra he continues his explorations into longform track arrangements, melodically complex composition, and crystal-clear production.”

Starkey is also a regular DJ on London’s Rinse FM and was one of the first DJs ever to have a residency on Mistajam’s BBC 1Xtra “Daily Dose” mix.  He’s released music around the world through a diverse group of labels such as Ninja Tune, Planet Mu, Civil Music, Alpha Pup, No Hats No Hoods, and Keysound. Commended from around the world, Starkey’s body of work continues to compile stunning originality and imaginative production flair. From producer to singer to the co-owner of the prominent record labels Seclusiasis, Slit Jockey and NOREMIXES, Starkey is an unstoppable force renovating the sounds of electronic music.
