Here is one of my favorite tracks from David Starfire. I heard him drop this track at Burning Man and couldn’t find it online when I got back. That would be because he just released it to the public a little over a week ago. In David Starfires own words…
“I’m finally giving away the Bob Marley “Get Up Stand Up” Remix I produced and have had a lot of requests for it since I’ve been playing it out the past few months. I’m hoping it will be a theme song for all of the people standing up for our rights with the current “Occupy” situation that is happening all over the world. I hope through music that this could spark more interest of others to become politically active too. ” – David Starfire
It’s the last night of Burning Man. I am sitting in our RV discussing what time we are going to leave, the temple has just burned, and I realize that David Starfire (who I somehow missed every other day) is playing a set at…I think it was 3am, right after Freq Nasty. We can not leave yet. The car can get packed, but we can not leave. Sure enough. It was the best decision I could have possibly made that trip. We get over to the Hookah Dome and the crowd is going absolutely nuts. There were so many people in animal attire and with masks on that it felt as if I were in a dusty sea of mermaids, minotaurs, and elves. Could you ask for a better environment to see some of the craziest worldly dubstep/drumstep music ever produced? Definitely not. David Starfire left a lasting impression on me as the last act seen of my first year of Burning Man, and set our groups energy right for the 18 hour journey home. Enjoy this mix from Mr. Starfire title Rites Of Passage. This set is the theme music of Burning Man 2011. We will see you on the playa next year!
Here is a a track I knew I would love instantly simply based off of the artists involved. Beats Antique plays one of the best live performances I have ever seen in my life and David Starfire creates world electronic music that is years ahead of it’s time. This track is impossible not to enjoy. So enjoy it.
So a couple months ago when I saw David Starfire at Contour, in Seattle, Washington, he opened up his set (it might have not been the first song but it was close!) with an incredible remix of The Beatles, Come Together. He dropped the song and the whole vibe of the room seemed to shift in a positive manner and people were literally coming together on the dance floor. David Starfire has a distinct sound that incorporates world beats, with glitch, hip hop, and dubstep, mashed up all together and spit back out with his own heavy bass take. It’s catchy, inspiring, and gets feet moving! Enjoy this one.
