Various Artists Moonstarr Remixes
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Public Transit
Toronto is the most frequently overlooked North American city for edgy electronic music, but the town has long had healthy house, drum & bass, and techno scenes. Now add broken beat producer Moonstarr to the list of ignored but not overrated producers from the T-dot. Remixes collects his unique looped and layered reworks of Amsterdam's Rednose Distrikt, soundtrack legend Ennio Morricone, and fellow future jazz artists Middlefield and Povo. Moonstarr's signature clipped beats streak along like a racing cyclist, jerking over bass bumps and swerving with clever Latin percussion. With equal quality over the dozen tracks included, it won't be long before Moonstarr becomes mayor of a newly respected scene.
