Frankly, we don’t cover enough compilations here at Modern Neon and it is about time we fixed that. On our latest visit over to Gravitas we were able to check out Portal, the newest compilation from David Starfire. If for some reason you have been missing out and not paying attention to global/world bass community, Starfire has been cultivating quite a following for some time now. Named by BBC Radio as ““One of the most brilliant world-fusion producers of our time”, Starfire is quickly becoming a pioneer for the global bass movement. Starfire has plenty of notches in his belt already, including performances at Coachella, Outside Lands, Burning Man, Eclipse, and Lightning in a Bottle. We can’t forget about his numerous collaborations including the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, Sizzla, Ooah (The Glitch Mob), Beats Antique (Sidecar Tommy), Alex Grey, and the Grammy-nominated vocalist Chaytanya. It is becoming clear rather quickly that when Starfire drops a new release, the community takes notice.
Now back with Gravitas, Starfire is ready to release his latest project out to the masses, letting it stretch its legs out in the wild. Portal: Curated by David Starfire is a brand new compilation that spans the spectrum of world bass music including global bass, dubstep, house, electro-swing and remixes galore. Consisting of 13 different tracks, each song throughout Portal will take you on a journey through bass music, each with a wildly different soundtrack to score said adventure. Starfire recruited man talented artists to contribute and be a part of the project such as SOOHAN, Desert Dwellers, Ahee, and Zebbler Encanti Experience to name a few. While you may think that we are starting to get into a “too many cooks in the kitchen” scenario, each artist’s style provides a unique experience for their individual track alone, while still fitting into the overall aesthetic as curated by Starfire. Simply put, if you are a fan of world music or bass music, Portal: Curated by David Starfire is worth diving deep into.
