Buoyed from their month long residency on BBC Radio 1xtra, sibling duo Star One turn their hands back to production with the feel good Garage number ‘Freaky’. Featuring the catchy, distinctive vocals of Juliette Ashby, Freaky takes inspiration from 90′s 2 step whilst still sounding incredibly refreshing.
It’s been a while since we featured homegrown duo Star One over here, but they’ve won me back with this fantastic throwback to the heady days of UK garage. The production is quintessential UKG with a modern coating, throwing together the uptempo electronic percussion characteristic of the genre with sharp, dramatic synth work, whilst the vocal work travels through the track in a dynamic manner, moving through distortions, stutters and regular vocals with good effect. It’s a track that the old school garage heads will go crazy for, and should certainly be added to your summer playlists on its release this Thursday (23rd May), with a remix from Big Voyage in tow too. There’s also a rather psychedlic accompanying video should you require visual treats to work alongside the audio, and whilst it doesn’t feature the full track, it’s a vivid, relatively trippy clip that’s worth a go.
