Darkstar Announce Debut Hyperdub LP
Published Aug 25, 2010After a slew of top-notch singles and other odds and ends, dubsteppin' UK production team Darkstar have announced plans to release their debut full-length on Hyperdub. The record is called North, and will see the duo expand to a three-piece with the addition of vocalist James Buttery.
According to a press release, North is "elegant, downbeat, breezy, sometimes melancholy and bleak, sometimes optimistic" and "will surprise many, a classic record for short days and long nights."
North will be released on October 19. It will be preceded by a music video and single for the album track "Gold." That song is a cover of the Human League's rare single "You Remind Me of Gold," a track that caught the group's attention when they heard it slowed to 33rpm.
