Recently relocated to Los Angeles via Washington, DC DJ/producer Steve Starks is an underrated bass technician. Taking his crunk with a side of Old Bay productions across the country, he may have changed his address, but he’s still providing the same high level of funk. New (and free-to-download) track “Bayside” melds together Starks’ twin influences of trunk-rattling Southern rap and heavy, dance-friendly bass for a production equally equipped for Pusha T‘s rhymes or Miley Cyrus‘ derriere shaking in the air. If this heavily rap-inspired sound is where EDM’s zeitgeist-defining style chooses to significantly expand, then it’s an absolute certainty that Starks will truly excel.
