Star Slinger slings out one of his own

Star Slinger

Green Label Sound's Darren Williams, better known as Star Slinger, has released his first “official” single. First single? How is that just now happening for such a successful hip-hop artist and producer? Well, Williams has been mixing and remixing for years now. His career includes remixes for Broken Social Scene, Gold Panda, and Childish Gambino along with countless gigs and shows. Williams also has two albums, Volume 1 and Rogue Cha Pa. Yet still, this is his first “official” (Dew-sponsored) single.

The track, entitled “Dumbin'”, features vocals from Reggie B. You can't help but think that you're listening to a present-day Boys II Men (oh, how magical that would be!). Williams admitted to simply wanting to make a “poppy” track; something that is timeless and relevant. We think he's accomplished just that. You can listen to Star Slinger's new single here and also check out his mix of Toro Y Moi's “New Beat” via Pitchfork. Here is the list of Star Slinger's upcoming tour dates.
