Groups like As Animals don’t fit the normal DAD palette; that’s not to say that we don’t mess with indie/pop acts, but this French duo’s music is just not in our regular rotation. That’s why, while we might dig something like the thumping, emotional “I See Ghost (Ghost Gunfighters),” we can’t post on it… unless someone like Star Slinger adds his Midas touch, filtering it in his own unique way. Applying a garage-ethos to the way he sampled the vocals, he takes the lyrics and wraps them around a deeper, mid-tempo club bounce. He assembles his sounds in a mesmerizing way, keeping the original’s thump in place while capturing everything we loved about it and thrusting it into something that we’re able to throw in our sets with no fear.
