Starkey "Robot Hands (Egyptrixx Remix)"
Philadelphia's foremost purveyor of all things future bass, Starkey, has a new EP coming next week featuring five new tracks and a handful of remixes from the likes of Egyptrixx, Arp 101, Ital Tek, and other bass-minded producers. Egyptrixx's remix of the EP's opening track, "Robot Hands," strips down the layered production of the original and instead focuses on an intensely repetitive 2-step groove that builds upon itself with siren-esque synths and intricate percussion. After a few minutes of methodical building, the elements culminate into a massive track with a heavy kick drum and a low, growling bass that take the remix to its full, future-sci-fi potential, especially if your system can handle a healthy dose of low end. The Space Traitor Vol. 1 EP is set to be released December 6, check the full tracklist after the jump.
