DarkStarr is the new unit formed of music superheroes Ashley Beedle and Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy.
‘Cosmic Disco’ ‘Acid House’ ‘Psychedelic’ ‘Balearic’ – these are the overused and misunderstood terms used to hype today’s dance music scene. Every other week we have a new party or DJ cropping up claiming to be experts in this field.
Ashley Beedle and Cosmo give this music the respect it deserves whilst putting the soul back into the party. With their first hand experience Ashley and Cosmo stand in a class of their own. Ashley has been London’s premier Soul Boy for decades.
His work under the monikers of X Press 2 (with Rocky and Diesel), Black Science Orchestra, Heavy Disco and Ballistic Brothers proves Ashley is one the few DJ/producers that can be both diverse and credible at the same time.
Cosmo draws on her heritage from the other side of the pond. Her tutelage by David Mancuso within The Loft is unique within today’s generation of DJs and her New York City radio shows of house, disco and psychedelic rock tuned in and turned on a generation of new listeners from the late 80’s onwards.
DarkStarr sees Ashley and Cosmo reviving celebrated New York / London traditions. Drawing on Cosmo’s experiences at the Loft and Body & Soul, ‘DarkStarr’ has the DJs playing together as a one-on-one stream of consciousness rather than having specific ego-driven DJ sets that break up and fragment the vibe. They play without boundaries and let the music do the talking, playing records in full and letting them tell a story.
DarkStarr is refreshing and fun, oozing with credibility and heritage, putting the funk and soul back into the party.
The compilation features both old and new – highlights include Cosmos own Wild Rumpus ‘Kazan’, Chicago Transit Authority ‘I’m A Man’, Still Going ‘Spaghetti Circus’, Ashleys own Mavis featuring Candi Staton ‘Revolution’ (Exclusive Darkstarr Remix) and Yam Who? ‘The Star Of A Story’.
