|Dstar brings to drum and bass an eclectic style influenced by his roots in jazz, hip hop, and rock to create tunes that smash, run, bounce, and roll. Also a veteran in the trip hop realm, it is not uncommon to catch Dstar doing a set of the finest in down-tempo and rare groove.
It is this diversity and depth of musical knowledge that has attracted the likes of Metalheadz, Proper Talent, Freak, Eastside, Habit, and Intasounds. Aside from his work in the studio, he is also responsible for bringing together the crew and label known as GASM recordings, the production moniker Swarm, and for running dance-floors from hometown Philadelphia across the country to Los Angles, and everywhere around and in between.
In college Dstar delved into the production of talents such as Aphex Twin, Hive, Goldie, Yellownote, Ming and Fs, and Digital. These artists made a profound impression on the ambitions of Dstar leading him into the realm of electronic music and production. His back ground as a drummer just made it all the more natural for Dstar to progress the rhythmic elements of creation, djing and music. After becoming a director at his college radio station, Dstar began to network with labels such as Liquid Sky and Sulphur. Within a short time, Dstar had releases on both labels.
To date Dstar has produced some 2003's more memorable tunes. With his partner, Mason, Dstar co-wrote Zero Sum Breakout (signed to Dylan's Freak label) which made it to the ears of DnB legend Goldie. This sparked a working relationship with Goldie and the Gasm family who have now been placed at the center of Metalheadz USA. This unique project will be releasing drum and bass tunes with the trademark headz flavor as well as hip hop cuts using the lyrical skills of Mental Sharp.
