New UK electronic artist Star Slinger has a sweet but familiar sound that reminds me of Washed Out, Toro y Moi, RAC, take your pick. It’s Chill-wave, which is just another word for electronica to me (Air makes Chillwave if I’m not mistaken), but there is definitely some dance-ability to it. The best thing about this new wave of chill out electronica is that it’s great poolside music. And since it’s 90 degrees in LA right now, I thought this might be the perfect time for this post. I’m especially digging Alex Winston’s vocals on his remix of “Sister Wife”  He also remixes the super ‘hot right now’ rapper Childish Gambino, simply adding his surfy Star Slinger sound to CG’s clever “Freaks and Geeks”. I’ve heard other tracks from Star Slinger on his very impressive Soundcloud page, and there is a little more of a Hip-Hop influence than with the other chillwave artists, think Onra. But enough words, listen to the tracks and decide for yourself.
