DJ Blaqstarr, 'Supastarr EP' (Mad Decent)

7
Supastarr EP
Critical Mass
Label: Mad Decent

by Michaelangelo Matos

This collection of seven tracks by Baltimore upstart Blaqstarr (on Philadelphia DJ Diplo's new label) serves as a good example of the raw, exuberant club music being made largely outside of the media spotlight. He focuses on tinny handclaps, skittering breaks, singsong chants ("Shake It to the Ground"), spurts of synth spritz ("Check Me Out Like"), and vocals that, even when polished (as on "Rock-starrz"), have the same go-for-it feel as the rough-and-ready beats.
