Moonstarr teams up with Montreal's Kelly Nunes on ‘Starlight’, a raw house cut with deep techno soul roots. ‘Starlight’ evokes the fragmented memories of a past romance that flood the mind while driving through the city in the dead of night, steam rising from sewer grates. Drawing on inspiration from Abacus, Mark Flash, Recloose and Shawn Rudiman, the original keeps building with anticipation, while the energetic remix pays homage to early 90s club days in Toronto.
Over the last two years, Moonstarr has released exclusive tracks on underground labels such as Pittsburgh’s Love What You Feel and Berlin’s Parages Music. A 12 inch EP is in the works for Adam Marshall’s New Kanada imprint, as well as the follow-up to Ill Harmonics Vol. 1 on PTR Music. ‘C-Minus Particles’ is still getting love four years on from the likes of George Fitzgerald, Art Department (BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix), Maceo Plex (featured his on Mixmag Dec. 2013 mix), and was recently licensed to a forthcoming Rainer Truby compilation on Compost Records.
Moonstarr continues to push innovative sounds on the long-running bi-weekly Future Classic Radio show on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal with co-host The One Tash. The show is available for stream on www.futureclassic.ca
Fifteen years strong, Public Transit Recordings continues its mission to release cutting-edge Hip Hop, Future Soul and Electronic Music from Canadian and international artists. www.ptrmusic.com
