Not only did David Starfire get an all-expense paid trip to Thailand, but through Crowdsourcing he produced an album incorporating his psy-dub sound with classical instruments played by Burmese Refugees. Not only is there a seamless blend of these two seemingly different music styles, but each track borrows themes and ideas from another making the whole album actually feel like one long track. Here’s the breakdown: You’ll hear gongs, chimes, throat singing, violins, and pattalas, lead by the sub-happy bass rhythms and wild pitch changing percussion of Starfire’s Chakras breaking loose. Be prepared for an ego death listening to The One.
(In my opinion this is Starfire’s strongest release, a brilliant balance between classical world music and electronic)
