Sinistarr [US]

Sinistarr is one of the leaders of the dance music new school, a Triple threat as a DJ/Producer/serial Remixer who’s as well known for his forward thinking beats as he is for nightclub domination. Representing Detroit, Sinistarr’s attacking both headphones and dancefloors for 2015.

If you know drum and bass you know Sinistarr as a respected junglist who’s dropped heavyweight tracks over the years on Goldie’s Metalheadz imprint, Doc Scott’s 31 Recordings, Hospital Records, Architecture Recordings and Renegade Hardware. Recently though, the man’s been everywhere, applying his signature style to diverse sounds like footwork, techno and house with releases and remixes on SMOG, Tectonic, Human Elements, Seclusiasis, Juke Trax, and Loose Squares that show him moving beyond dance music conventions and constantly reaching out to a new audience. He’s even joined on as a member of the seminal group Urban Tribe, a team led by Drexciya member Stingray313 who boasts Carl Craig, Moodymann, and Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir as other contributors.

From gigs at South By Southwest in Austin, Ohm (Tresor) in Berlin, and the blue lagoons of Iceland, Sinistarr’s been licking the envelope lately, and publications like URB, Vibe, Resident Advisor and Complex Magazine are taking note–he is out in front.
