With his latest release, independent Philly based noise maker Starkey takes you on an intergalactic, sonic expedition. Its called Space Traitor Vol 1, and brings with it this glitchy, testifying video as well. Here an evangelical leads his congregation through a variety of creepy religious rituals. Dis-tubing. The video was directed by Josh Cohen.
PJ Geissinger aka Starkey is blessed with musical arrangement skills that would leave most composers green faced with envy. This combined with his high production ethic makes him a formidable force not only in the underground but also as a super producer of the future. Starkey is yet another example of what the streets of Philadelphia can create, his sound hits hard and is littered with bass and colourful audio frequencies. If you like grime, dubstep, hip hop and all things street bass then Starkeys hard edged spaced out crunk is the sound for you.
In 2008, Starkey was selected by Vexd as one of seven new DJs for Radio 1s MARY ANNE HOBBS low end special 'Generation Bass and was the only non-UK DJ to be chosen. He was recently chosen to create a track in the space of 2 hours live on Radio 1, the track received daytime radio play and was top of the reviews list across many channels.
Starkey is also co-owner of the Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey Record labels, and a member of the Trouble & Bass Crew, releasing the freshest output from around the globe. This combined with his fortnightly radio show on Sub FM has positioned him as one of the tastemakers to emerge out of the bass heavy underground.
Recent remixes include Armand Van Helden, Gorilla Zoe, Uffie, Tempa T, Zomby, Inner Party System, The Constellations, Kano and The Foals to name a few!! With production on the cards/ pitched for Missy Elliot, MIA, Britney Spears, Fatima, Dizzee and more...Move over Timbaland, Dre and Swizz beats, the future is set to be bright for Starkey!!
